    Default Loft - Ruled vs Smooth

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Just out of curiosity. If you loft 3 different circles. Top (6"), Middle (3") and bottom (6") for example. I go to wire frame view. If i choose loft type rule it shows multiple lines throughout wire frames. Smooth does not. Just don't like the way loft smooth type looks in wireframe. Anyone know a way to get more lines in smooth loft style to show up? I attached two screen shots of what I am talking about.

    1. Open the Visual Style Manager dialog box with the visualstyles command.
    2. Drag the 2D Wireframe option into the view.
    3. Change the value of the 2D Wireframe option for Contour lines from the default of 4 to 8 or 16.
    4. Give the REGEN command.
