Hi,

 

Here I have two views of my structure that I'm trying to LOFT/Extrude,

but with the guides I've drawn.

 

Objective:

To LOFT the circles together (or extrude them) with the polyline as a guide,

and I assume the effect of the guide would be on all sides (ie 360 degrees around the circle would exhibit the same guide effect)

 

Problem

For some reason I can LOFT, but I can't use the POLYLINE as a guide, like it says "it's invalid":glare:

 

I'm trying to make the shape of a cartoon POO (crap)...

 

Thanks a lot guys for your time!

 

@Remark:

I appreaciate your answer, but with Revolve I will get a uniform surface, which will still work in my case,

 

but if I wanted to create a surface that also changes in the radial direction (the revolve direction), "revolve"

wouldn't work.

 

@SLW210:

Thank you, but even if I choose "Path" it still wouldn't work

 

@nestly:

Thank you I will definitely review the limitations to see if I can work my way around.

 

Hoping to see some more comments if anyone has an idea!
