Creating a Vase


  1. Create a bounding box @3x3x6″ with “box”  and “DupEdge”.
  2. On top view, create a small circle near the edge of the bounding box
  3. Run “ArrayPolar” command (20 / 360) to create array of the circles
  4. Use “CurveBoolean” command to extract the edges of the array
  5. Copy extracted edges to Z direction 3 times (4 total)
  6. “Record History” and “Loft”
  7. Adjust scales of the sections


  1. For each section, offset each curve at 0.1″
  2. Draw “circle” to each offset curves
  3. “Record History” and “Loft”
  4. Adjust locations – bottom needs to be 0.1″ higher
  5. “PlanarSrf” to create bottoms for both inside and outside
  6. “Loft” to close the top
  7. Join the whole model – Check “Properties” to see if the model is “ClosedPolysrf”
