Key Terms

  • World-space modifier— World-space modifiers are based on the fixed World coordinate system. As modified objects are transformed through World space, they “pass through” the modifications.

  • Object-space modifier— Modifiers that function in Object space use the object's own coordinate system to define the changes. As the object transforms through space, the modifications travel with it.

  • Lofting— Lofting is the method of extruding one or more 2D shapes along a single 2D path.

  • Path— The extrusion path in lofting.

  • Shape— A 2D shape that defines a cross-section in lofting.

  • Path and shape steps— These are intermediate steps between vertices of shapes that define curvature.

  • Smoothing— This describes whether a shared edge between two faces appears sharp or smoothed.
