    rendering error

    When I render this twisted shape at low res, it works out fine. When I render at hi-res (600 dpi) I get this rectangle square in the foreground. I wonder if this a hither yon issue, although I need to keep the same perspective. The fmz file is too big to upload. Thank you for your help.

    object rotation

    I'm trying to rotate an extruded object to eventually up with several rotations along a curved path, as in a braided wire. Is there a way to loft 2 shapes along a curved path and rotate one of the end shapes several times to end up with a braided look? I would appreciate suggestions. twist shape.zip

    object rotation

    Yes, I did that ( with smooth option). Worked fine for what I needed. Curious, I wanted to round the edges of the twist curves, for a more reflective edge, but no luck. Additionally, sized up the image 1000 percent and still could not round the edges, is there another way to round edges? Thanks
