    So not only does it bend, but it also goes up at an angle?

    I'll have to think about that, as I'm not at all sure how to approach that.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Hi Art. I like your avatar.

    Yes, the rail goes up and around.

    Dang...I was thinking I'd know how to do this one. Now you went and made it all hard and stuff. I still may try it (with or without the "up" part), but it'll have to be later...work's been keeping me swamped and short of time.

    Dave,

    I've only used SU a few times, so I'll take a guess here.

    you drew the end profile.
    then you created a path to establish the curve that it would follow.
    then you extruded it or used a follow command to create the desired shape.

    am I close?

    Sean, you get points for trying. You have some of the steps but not all. Give it a try and see what you get.

    Hi Dave , That Art is a funny guy!
    I'm Still trying to figure out
    "Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota monax materiam possit materiari?"

    Is it
    "When the material matures and mates with the mother ship, sieze that moment to maximize use of all possible in house material and flee"?
    You are always TOO Much and really............Just enough!

    Hello Robert.

    Art is indeed a funny guy.

    Your translation isn't too far off but it's not quite right, either. It's good though.

    I tihnk it's time for an explanation Dave. I'm reasonably good with follow-me (though there are times when it drives me nuts) but I don't see how to make it do this particular job
    So do I type something witty here?
