    Embarrassed Loft (ing) shapes with 3ds max 9

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm an absolute beginner with 3ds and howtos could be so many...but actually worst issue for me is in using loft. I mean:
    1. drawing a spline that will be the path
    2. drawing a shape that will shape the loft
    3. getting the shape & path and ...

    path is clockwise direction BUT loft turns counterclockwise. Why?

    I've attached a sample file (hopefully clear..)
    Kindly help
    thanks & regards
