Lathe object with import of an Illustrator file as profile

rv-) 7 years ago updated 6 years ago 0
With a basic Lathe object and a imported profile, we could make a lot of stuff like glasses, plates etc. The cool thing could be to choose between a smooth circle or a square (same profile but four faces like a square glass) or better, choose the number of faces for making octagonal shapes e.g..
but we should resolve mapping tool on this lathe objects , should we?
well if we do lathe object with mapping and add offset form top and bottom, maybe we can get shrink sleeves tool, it work with similar way on symmetric objects.
