    Thank you all very much for all of your advice. I don't really have much experience using the loft command, so I'll be sure to give it a go and then say how it worked out.

    One other side question: I'm going to apply a material to these ducts. I was wondering if there is a way to attach something that looks like duct seams and creases in the metal by using an image map and a bump map or something. Does anyone know where I could find some images to use? Or how would I go about making them, as I have next to no experience with bump mapping. Thanks again!

    as for bump mapping you can create seam looking lines on a square material map and use that applied to you model, with the correct mapping and placement of the lines you can make it look as tho it is seamed without actually needing a bump map as such, when i was creating skins for mapping space ship models for game modifications i always the Paint shop pro and using the bevel tools you can make a line have the appearance of a raised or lowered section which if done to a straight line would give the apparence of a joint line or seam

    you're just gonna have to dive right in man... pick up a book on 3D or something. that's the best way...

    or maybe look for a program called Autodesk Building Systems - it's a total 3D package for designing things like HVAC, Plumbing, and Piping - does everything for you, all you do is tell it what you want.
