Need help skinning a complex curve


#1

Hey peeps.

I have a complex curve that is part of a stand for a phone charging dock. I’m having an issue skinning it as it curves in more than one axis. I know I can subdivide it, but it’s really tedious (although I’ll do it if no suggestions).

So is there anything I can use to help with this? The curse was done by hand so not plugin support.

you could either hand stitch all of those curves together to form surfaces or,
use a plugin such as CurviLoft in which you’d only have to select the 4 perimeter curves and the middle curves/surfaces will fill in automatically.

if you want to go the plugin route, i don’t think fredo’s CurviLoft is available through trimble’s extension warehouse… instead, you’d have to get it from sketchucation’s plugin store:

Additionally, you can have a look at TIGs Extrude Tools.
