HSC student Question

jessica_ramsayjessica_ramsay Member Posts: 2
Hello, I am a student completing the HSC this year. I am trying to create a design on OnShape that has tree branches in it. I want it to taper from one end to the other, this being on the branches which bend. I have tried using the chamfer tool, but it won't go around a corner. Any tips? here is a drawing of the design.

    You'll need something like 12 Lofts which go from a larger shape to a smaller one with some wavy guide(s) or a wavy path. I'm not sure what all the small shapes are, but if they are all the same depth, that could easily be done with one extrude.
