In this video, we'll take a look at the laif modifier. …This modifier takes a spline profile shape and revolves it 360 degrees around …an access to create a 3D object. This powerful tool allows you to create a …highly detailed 3D models with very little effort. …For this example, we're going to create the bell of the old-fashioned alarm clock. …Now, I've drawn in green the profile that we are going to create to use for the lathe.…
Now, when I say profile, I mean we're creating basically half of a profile. …We're going to use the line tool, from the shapes to begin with. …I'm going to start right up here at the top. …Click to create the shape to begin.
