Lofting Metaball

Hie everyone,

I’m trying to loft metaballs curves, I found this way :

But there no way to make it work on my slow PC and I don’t need a closed surface.

It works with one ball :

But can’t make it with two (or more) I’ve tried grafted or flattened…

If someone have a clue : (11.0 KB)

Have a good day !

Flip Matrix before Loft.

It works great !
What’s the use of flip matrix there ?
Thanks a lot Joseph.

Take a look at this:

Try connecting the ‘Tree/List Viewer’ tool before and then after Flip Matrix. Play with both sliders. See the difference?

Before Flip Matrix, each branch of the tree is a layer with one curve from each ball.
After Flip Matrix, each branch of the tree has all the curves for one ball, as you need for Loft. (28.2 KB)

Thanks for the explication, i’ll take time to check your examples…

I’ve got a new loft trouble,

Some are lofted “straigth” in green and some are “spinned” in red.

Don’t khnow why ! (15.8 KB)

Invert the ‘Adj’ input of Loft Options or set it manually (‘Align sections’) without the Loft Options component.

The seams (start/end points) are not aligned. It’s also possible to mess up Loft by having loft curves going opposite directions.

Im dumb your great !

Thanks a lot Joseph, have a good day !
