 uMake lets you create complex surfaces by
 creating a ‘lofted surface’ between
 0:00:04.640,0:00:07.180
 two or more curves
 0:00:07.180,0:00:10.410
 There are a few ways to create lofted surfaces
 in uMake.
 0:00:10.410,0:00:15.990
 We’ll start with the easiest method— sketch
 two curves that don’t touch and are not
 0:00:15.990,0:00:19.250
 on the same plane.
 0:00:19.250,0:00:25.560
 Select both curves . When the curves turn
 green you will notice a light green shape
 0:00:25.560,0:00:32.279
 appear between them— this is the preview
 of the surface that can be made.
 0:00:32.279,0:00:39.270
 You will also notice a small icon in the middle
 that looks like a surface with a + sign.
 0:00:39.270,0:00:42.760
 Tap this to create a surface.
 0:00:42.760,0:00:47.120
 You can also create lofted surfaces between
 curves that are connected, as long as they
 0:00:47.120,0:00:50.110
 are connected at the corners.
 0:00:50.110,0:00:54.960
 While uMake can now create surfaces from more
 than 4 edge curves, we recommend keeping edge
 0:00:54.960,0:00:59.280
 curves to a minimum in order to create more
 clean surfaces.
 0:00:59.280,0:01:03.780
 Try creating some lofted surfaces in uMake
 to get a feel for how you can add surfaces
 0:01:03.780,0:01:04.629
 to your designs.
