Lofting splines

Lofting is another method for 3D object creation. Starting with a shape that serves as a path, then adding any number of cross section shapes that form a complex complete 3D object. In this video we'll look at lofting to create the handle of this old alarm clock. In itself, the handle is fairly simple. But this area here has a totally different shape than the area up towards where your hand goes.

So this area down here underneath these bolts is flat, where this area up here is round. I'm going to switch over here to a perspective view and unhide some splines that I created. This spline here follows the shape seen from the front view of the handle and these two shapes represent the different cross sections that the loft will have. The rounded portion for this part and the area that's slightly squished, sorry that's not a very technical term, but it'll do. And that's the area that's going to come down here. When you begin a loft, you start with th...
