is this possible?

I've lofted a circle along this curved spline, and I want the geometry (face rings) to all have the same dimensions (on the yellow curve). can this be done automatically?

I simply dont understand your question. Sorry.

I will point out though that the lack of 'smoothness' is due to too few path steps/shape steps.

I am assuming you use a profile then lofted it along a line path?

Why not just use a renderable spline instead and then normalize it's segments? I am assuming that is what you mean.

I don't really understand the question either but try a normalize spline modifier on the spline.

he wants equal distances between the path steps Jimbo, even i got that :]

The interpolation can be changed in the loft settings, but how it's distributed will depend on how the vertices on the spline are distributed.

On the side note, you don't need to loft a circle for that. Simply create your spline and check both viewport and render checkboxes in the rendering rollout

Good point Horizon! Still probably want a normalize spline modifier and uncheck optimize in the spline rollout.

that normalize spline mod got me the closest resault, thanks much

If you don't need it to be exact, you can divide the edges and eyeball the lengths. Then set all the verts to corner and make the spline renderable.

speaking of simple button click and maya...

is there a way to rotate edges/quads in max? easier than cutting and deleting them?

You mean turn edges? It's in edit poly rollout
