Added on: Mon Jul 10 2000
Page: 2 3 


You will learn how to build a house Key in this tutorial. You will use tools such as loft, split and so on.


  • Loft: A way by Creating a surface from 2 splines in which is open. Command: loft
  • Point Editing: Taking points from a surface and manipulating the surface. Command: showcv
  • Polyline: A spline that is straight, it has no curves. It is very god to use with objects or lines that do not need to have smooth curves. Command: polyline

    Step 1 - Use a polyline to draw a spline similer to the one in the picture below.

    Step 2 - Now you need to copy the spline you have just made. Refer to the picture below to see how and what it should look like.
    Use the command "copy".
    Note:I would hold shift down to make sure you copy it straight above the original spline).

    Step 3 - Once you have the spline copied you now need to loft both of them together to make a surface.
    Type "loft" into the command line and select both lines, then press enter. Now you should see a window pop up similer to the one below. Use the settings below.

    Step 4 - Now that you have a lofted surface you need to cap it. Select your surfac and type "cap" into the command line.
    After this you should have a top veiwport similer to the one below.
