SubD

Loft

 History enabled

The SubDLoft command creates a SubD object through selected curves that define the shape.

Input

Curve, SubD edge

Adjust edge loop position options (Closed curves only)

Flip

Reverses the curve direction.

Automatic

Attempts to align the edge loop points and directions without intervention.

Natural

Moves the edge loop points to the way they were at the beginning of the command.

SnapToKnots
Yes

The edge loop points are always at the knots. You can only move them among the knots.

No

The edge loop points may leave the knots. You can move them without restriction.

To adjust edge loop points

  1. Select each edge loop point and move it along the curve to line up all edge loop points.

  2. Use the Flip option to make all edge loop point arrows point to the same side.

  3. Press Enter to continue.

Options

Corners

With open curves as input, creases the vertices at both ends of the first and last shapes.

Creases

With kinked curves as input, creases the edges along the kinks.

Closed

With three or more curves as input, closes the lofting direction.

Natural shape segments

The default segment count of the shapes used to create the SubD.

Adjust shape segments

Allows changing the shape segment number of the SubD.

Adjusted shape segments

The segment number along the input curves.

Divisions between shapes

The segment number between adjacent input curves.

Join

With a SubD edge as the first or last shape, joins the SubD loft to the input SubD.

Join does not support recording History.

Smooth

The SubD loft connects to the input SubD with smooth edges, otherwise with creased edges.
