Lofting Problems
show user profile  lad2050
Im running into some problems when using the loft modifier, the shape I am using to loft along the spline is going the wrong direction. It dosen't matter which direction the shape is rotated before lofting it is always going the same direction. Is there a way to rotate the spline or loft so that the shape is going the right direction?

Is there not a rotation or twist parameter in the loft modifier? Will check now...

Edit: Yes there is, under the Deformations roll-out called twist.

This will give you a new dialogue box with a graph. It's pretty straight forward but if you need a few pointers, just ask. :)

If you mean 'wrong direction' when you actually make the loft, then choose your spline first and then 'get shape'... not the other way round.

Thanks LoyHogg, I think I got it figured out with the twist function from here!
