A strange shape in google sketchup.
« on: March 13, 2009, 08:36:18 PM »
Can any one tell me how to make a strange shape thats eliptical from the top view, but some what cone shaped from the front in google sketchup? The shape I want to make looks somewhat like the trunk of the robot in this video...[youtube]wrjgk-YKgyU[/youtube].

I've never used Sketchup, only AutoDesk.

But If I were to do it, there are two ways I know of:
- use splines to make crazy shapes
- make your shape, then using rounding/fillets
