Help creating a spline from edges
show user profile  k2b4e
Hi, i've been modeling a car and I'm starting to make all the windows, I select the front edges of the roof to make the windshield, then I want to turn it into a spline, so I use "create shape from selection" and nothing changes, I'm not sure why, then I can not make a copy of the edge either using shift. This is the tutorial I'm following:

Guess it's not the best way to build a windshield. I'm usually using poly modeling for that kind of stuff.
What I would do is duplicate the roof, A pillar and hood, attach them, weld vertices so we had a single element and could select only windshield border, then cup it, delete every polygon but the windshield and refine it's shape connecting vertices.
Good knowledge of poly modeling is required but if you managed to build a car body with this method you should know it by now.

are you selecting the edges you want to make into a shape first ? Worth noting that you can only shift copy an open edge, not one in the middle of the mesh, only the edge.
