Speed Tutorial on Curves to Mesh


markkingsnorth writes:

A user recently asked how to create a deceptively complex shape using the Curves to Mesh add-on. With the recent update, here's a speed tutorial of me taking you through the process.

There are a lot more features to add including G1/2/3 continuity and as the tool continues to get support more updates will be coming, free to existing users. If you have new features to suggest, feel free to contact me on my Blender Market page.

    Can you direct me to some videos that show a detailed example of how you are creating using this add-on I appreciate what I see on this page but it goes so fast and it doesn't explain exactly the process so it makes it difficult for somebody who is trying to acquaintance Alice with its functionality..
    Thank you very much it looks like a wonderful tool and I am so looking forward to building cartoon characters in 3D with this add-on.

    • Hello Richard for a full overview I would visit the Blender Market linked on the blog or the overview video should give you a slower explanation. If you have any questions you can contact me either on Twitter ( or by logging in to Blender Market and clicking the 'Contact Creator' button on my main page.

      I hope this is a good complement to the Blender modelling process but it does not replace it so do check out other tutorials about how to model 3D characters in Blender.
