  1. @Kevin McAllister Thank you! That does work. As long as the arrows all seem to start in the same place, it lofts properly.
  2. @zoomer, these shapes were all created as you described, by scaling the same elipse in order to maintain the correct direction and number of vertices, etc. @Kevin McAllister, when I do what you've described (grouping circular nurbs, scaling in one direction, ungrouping), I get exactly the same result.
  3. I just tried altering the "circular" oval NURB and it doesn't help. Just makes the distortion more extreme.
  4. The circle is an oval with equal width and height, so it converts with the same number of vertices as the other ovals. If you use a regular circle, it doesn't like to align properly.
  5. If it helps at all, the weirdness shifts depending on which order you select the curves in. Here below are pics of the same 3 curves selected top to bottom vs. bottom to top. I
  6. @jblock, I believe I did in the original post. It's called Loft Problem.vwx.
  7. I use the Loft Surface tool a good bit, but I find it's output to be highly unpredictable. In the photos below, I'm trying to loft a surface from 3 nurbs curves that have been derived from the same original shape (so all are 3-degree curves, all the same direction). When I select them, the path indicated before I hit enter seem correct--it's a curve beginning at one curve, passing through the middle curve, and ending at the last curve. But when I hit enter and go to preview the Loft output, the path changes and now it's as though it's looping around the 3rd curve to connect to the...inside? I'm not sure. If I rotate this whole collection of curves into different 3D orientations, sometimes the extent of that weird looping around changes, even though no change has been made to the relationship between the curves. What the heck is going on? How do I get it to loft me a surface like the initial preview line suggest it should? Loft Problem.vwx
  8. I am running Spotlight 11.5, and i just started having this same issue. Any instrument i move behaves as described by Tim. Channel circle empty and stuck to the center of the unit. Nohting seems to fix it, and it affects any drawing i open, no matter how old. I can't think of anything i have done either within the program or to my system that would have caused any changes. Anyone else with this issue?
