Re: Flatten

Joji,,, The best I could come up (it gave me fits) with is to do this as a lofted bend with a tiny flat (note my Cut-Extrude8) at the coped (open) end of the cone. Normally you can easily do an insert bends on a revolved cone but since this was made from a thickened Surface-Loft that won't work. Your original body is still in the file just hidden. You can unhide it to compare the two and see that they match up.

It seems new concept for me thanks for introducing it.

Re: Flatten

Thanks for your efforts, but its is really confusing me.

Is there any standard method to successfully do this from the beginning?
