Hello! I’m trying a few things with Blender, coming from my past experience with softimage XSI. I want to -
Create an extruded square shape, twist the square shape so it has a 180 degree twist over much of its length (think a wrought iron fence with square, twisted posts), then deform the object over a curve, resulting in a 3D letter.
I can figure out how to extrude the square, and can add points so that it has several to spread the spin over. I keep getting an error when I try to use “Screw”, something about needing a string of connected points selected. I’ve managed to use a curve to bend the object. not perfectly, but it’s a start. If you can help to identify some tutorials for Screw, Boolean, and curve deforming, I would appreciate it. Thanks! chris
