how can we add a lattice object to the 3D Window?

In object mode I tried to use the Modifier to add a Lattice object, but nothing happened. Can someone tell me what did I miss?

You really should familiarise youself with the documentation and the search function on this forum.

Thanks Andy D. All the links you supplied are very useful. :slight_smile:
