Blender Newbie Question


(clownfunk) #1

Is there a lathe or revolve function in blender. I have had a quick poke about but couldnt seem to find one. If not is there a work around.

I think you will probably be looking for the SPIN buttons in the Edit Tab… Just set the cursor to where you want to center to be, (make sure your in transform cursor mode (just hit the ‘.’ DotKey)) select the verts you want to spin and hit the button.

FYI this post should be in the general Q and A forum, the foundation forum is for Open Source blender discussion.

Thanks for the reply MortalNME,

Ive found the spin buttons but they only seam to work for meshes. I want to revolve a curve. Is this possible.

Yes it is…

If you want to have a good idea of what the spin buttons can do for you, take a look at this tutorial:

It may doesn’t cover all the details, but it’s really good to get you started…

I hope this helps a bit…
