Thanks, Charly. I hope to tame the powerful beast with the insights you have shared, or at least not be consumed by it.

When I've got the transitions previewed (in black), I find I am unable to orbit to really inspect the thing (like you do, Rich, in your demo tuts). If I try the operation is cancelled. Is there a secret?

Charly,

I have an irregular column shape I'm trying to make using curviloft. Stitching the circle and the shapes together should have worked but it did not. Do the segments on each shape have to be equal in number?
also the top of the planter is not flat it should be from with a curve in the z plane. Not certain how I would construct this.
How can this be done? See attached skp file.

Lapx

Is this the result you seek?
Select the three 'profiles' of edges and run CurviLoft.
The initial result might be somewhat twisted, because the top circle's 'start' is rotated relative the the 'starts' of the other curves... but you can easily relocate that point around the curve in the tool.... before committing to the form...

The start point may not matter depending on the Vx setting.

Note the black previews which if I orbit during, causes the whole operation to be discarded.

The first pics show 1,2,3 from the bottom up.

I have not been able to manipulate the GUI interface with this tool, so I am left with overlapping issues in my model :/ I am not sure what to do, but wow this tool is amazing so far! My concept is taking a plane lettering and then using a half circle guide flow to reform it to a rectangle below the lettering facing the same direction. SO, just a morphed half loop from letter to poly. But always get overlapping and face issues since I cannot use the points on the GUI. I wish I could do this stuff above! Will keep trying :)
