View Full Version : Generating a paraboloid? (LW 11.6)

Hi All,
I was wondering if there's a way to generate a paraboloid on the LW modeller?

Perhaps via s parametric or superquadric object?

I can build one up the slow way, but this would be handy.
In case it makes a difference, I want a fairly big chunk, with the sides reaching up somewhat like a champagne glass...

So... the simplest parabola is just y=x^2... Open the plot1d tool, enter "x^2" in the equation field, set your x,y range, choose curve, hit ok. You now have a plot of x^2 which you can loft.
