    Embarrassed Loft (ing) shapes with 3ds max 9

    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

    In a nutshell, I create 3D models from the client's CAD files or design sketches which I then use to produce high quality rendered images. Click on the link in my signature to view my portfolio. I'm always looking for work, so let me know if you need any custom models or renders. :)
