Producing a smooth blend between surfaces

In this lesson were going to create the rear bracket for our wagon. While creating this part, we will learn how to produce a smooth transition from one surface to another. And we will also see that we can trim our surfaces using two-dimensional line work. On my screen I have got some polylines. I'm going to orbit my drawing a little bit, so you can see their context in 3D space. Generally speaking, I've drawn the lower edge and the upper edge of my bracket. I am going to start out by extruding this lower edge up. So I'm going to launch the Extrude command.

I will select the edge and hit Enter, and then I'll pull this guy up 8 units. Let's zoom in on the top, up here I've got a closed polyline, and I would like to create a flat surface based on this geometry. To do that I'm going to come back to Create panel, and I'll launch the Planar Surface tool. This allows us to create a flat surface based on points that we click on screen, or by selecting an existing obj...
