show user profile  azdarkiuc
hello.

im following a tutorial with lofting.im doing as the instructor demonstrates using a:line circle and star,all is good and i get a loft shape.

but when i choose other splines to expiriment with the program,such as:line, donut, and rectangle i can only combine 2 of the splines,but cant add the 3rd spline,does it make sence what im saying? :-/

as you can see the loft with 3 shapes works well.

but then when i try to do it with other shapes,i can only combine 2 and the 3rd shape which is a donut i cant add to the loft.

You can't do it with donut,mean lofting Rectangle and Star is ok because they both are single shape mean single spline or line what ever u say it,and the donut is double shape,to do this convert ur rectangle and star to edit splint,chose the spline and then out line.
Then apply the loft and see if it works or not,but the shape will be lil messed up and you will need to fix it
