Thanks dave. I followed what you did then added to it. I remembered a little trick from last year that i did when using the follow me tool and unions. I had to extend the line i was working with. Your post jogged that memory of mine, then box said i was acting like a newb, so i sat down and thought like a pro, and then it came to me.
Thanks box for calling me a newb. I am acting like one. I swear, as soon as a new semester starts, today, everything else leaves my brain. haha.
ok, i used solid tools to accomplish this. However, is there another way with this than using solid tools? I have never used curvi-loft, but would it extrude a pipe along a path and keep the base normal? Even though i can do this with solid tools, knowing another way that works is good to know:) oh, and intersect faces is a good way to.
