Hi there.

I’m a beginner, but can you attach your file or a file with the specific problem?

If I’m not wrong, you want a round top with 2m of height in the edges from the botttom and 3m of height in the middle?

If it’s what I think, maybe curviloft plugin and this tutorial could help

If it’s that I think there are ways to do it with standard tools too, being more patient.

My apologies if this is not what you’re looking for.

@upoko,

is something like this what you’re looking for?

I also speak Spanish so if you do too, you can pm to help you to explain what you’re looking for.

Sorry if I misunderstood.

One example with Curviloft…

with native tools…

you can just type the meters for the arcs, but this is badly done by eye…

I suggest this tool and tutorial:

You can start with body. Create a simple tube and then modificate it with TGI3D.

It would be easier to start looking for some existing models in 3DWarehouse and check how they did it. You can even take some parts which could be useful for you. You can get crosscut section and copy its shape if you want.
