Making the wine glass

How do I create the profile for the wine glass like the one in the tutorial. It says use spin to create it but how?[/img]


I used a simple mesh plane. You can use any 2D mesh object really, just add it in front view. You then open it up by deleting one of the edges then move the vertices. To add vertices, select the last vertex and do ctrl-click.

You don’t need nearly as many vertices as the tut describes BTW. I used about 16 for the profile and revolved with 8 steps. With higher resolutions I got artifacts in the glass after turning on subds.

My result looked like this (you either have to cut and paste the URL or hit return in the location bar again after you click the link):
