Total noob question…
I have a friend (and neighbor) who makes jewelry. She uses these forms called ‘mandrels’–sort of conical shapes that might be circular or elliptical or, say, octagonal in cross-section. She has some ideas for some more exotic shapes, and she wants me to 3D print them.
I’ve gotten the shape she wants into an svg, and pulled it into Blender. That much was easy. I can extrude it and make an odd tube. I’m now trying to make my tube into a cone, and getting stuck. I’ve been following the directions on Youtube entitled ‘Introduction to using curves in Blender - part 3 - Aparima Blender Club.’ (this being my first post I can’t add a link.)
They work till I add the second Bezier curve. It sort of makes a duplicate tube instead of just adding a curve so I can taper, and I can’t seem to grab and move the Bezier handles separately. I seem to be stuck just moving the whole object.
I recently installed blender, so it should be pretty up to date.
