Follow Me Tool: Creating a lathed shape

Creating a lathed shape

You can use the Follow Me tool to create full lathed shapes using circular paths. To create a lathed shape:

  1. Draw a circle whose edge will represent the path.
  2. Draw a face perpendicular to the circle. The face does not have to be on or even touch the circle's path.
  3. Select Follow Me tool (). The cursor will change to a slanted box with an arrow.
  4. Follow the edge of the circle with the face using one of the methods above.
