I decided to make an ear by starting with a circle plane and then using a lattice deform to pull it into the ear shape I wanted. Now I’ve done that, is it possible to delete the lattice but keep the ear the way with the deform?
I guess you’ve made the lattice the circle’s parent.
If you’re in last Blender version go to F9 (editing) and in modifiers panel press “Make real” and then press “Apply”.
If you’re in an old version that doesn’t have lattice modifier press CTRL+SHIFT+A
Hahaha - right there in front of me all the time. Cheers.
