In this video, we'll build a robot leg and a few other things with the Loft command. Along the way, we'll also explore some of my excellent tips to get better results. Fortunately, the Loft may just be one of the most forgiving and easiest-to-use surfacing command in Rhino. But before we address that leg, which is very mechanical, let's take a look at some organic lofting examples. Go ahead and turn on our organic lofting layer, and so here is tip number one. You can loft between any two or more curves, but they must be either closed or opened, but not both.

So, here is an example of a series of open curves that we'll loft. You could actually loft 50 or even 100, but that would probably be counter- productive and too much trouble. So, always try to keep the fewest number of curves to describe the form you're after. I'm going to start off by selecting all of these curves except for one. You will see why in just a minute. So, we're going to Surface > Loft. Not to...
