Sweep/Loft in 3-D issue..

steve_maiettasteve_maietta Member Posts: 29 EDU
Hey all, I am trying to create an "s" curved flat surface (model racetrack)  I have a 3-D curve, I have profiles where I need them but I cant seem to get it to behave how I want.

I can create the loft ne side of the curve will "bank" downward/inward in the correct way, but the other always wants to bank in the upward/outward direction which will not work for a racetrack. 

If anyone would like to take a whack at this, "EssCurveTrial" is the file, it is public.  I'd love to hear a way to make this work.

thanks a lot!

    I got it to work by making two additional profiles and and creating 5 separate lofts..  I was hoping fora single sweep or loft along a single curve, but this way gives me more control..

    still if anyone wants to give it a try, be my guest and let me know how it works for you!
