Hi, I’m working my way through the BlenderWiki User’s manual and have come across a problem with the lathe tool: Spin in Modelling>Basic Mesh Modelling>Spin and Spin Dup.
Maybe I’ve followed the steps incorrectly, but when I create a curve to spin, the button palettes I get are:
Link and materials
Curve and Surface
and not the Mesh Tools palette with Spin and Spin Dup that the tutorial suggests should appear when all vertices are selected. Could anyone help me with this conundrum - do I have to convert the curve into a mesh for example?
