The Loft tool in Autodesk Maya
Creates a surface between multiple curves (2 or more).
- Create 2 or more curves
- Select the curves (select them in order, not all at once, the loft will follow the selected order
- Go to ‘surfaces’ – ‘loft’
- New mesh can be manipulated by selecting the original curves and moving or modifying (I think this is done in the either the channel box or attribute editor)
Experiment with lofts, you could get some interesting mesh shapes by selecting the curves ‘out’ of order.
