I expect you'd find it works much better if you use smoother curves, avoid the sharp points and use a higher number for generating the surface.

I was just playing around and got this. It still needs a bit of fine tuning.

Inspecting mirrors is a job I could easily see myself doing.

Hello Dave
Thank you for the Help.
I understand what you mean.

I use illustrator to draw the shapes and export to Sketchup.
do you know a plugin that generates line shapes to bezier curves?....they work better
or to generate smoother curves?

regards
Goran

They do work better. I used the Bezier tool from Fredo's Bezier Spline which is available here in the Sketchucation Extension Store.
