LatheGeometry allows you to create shapes from a smooth curve. This curve is defined by a number of points (also called knots) and is most often called a spline. This spline is rotated around a fixed point and results in vase- and bell-like shapes. Once again, the easiest way to understand what a
LatheGeometry does is by looking at an example. This geometry is shown in
In this screenshot you can see the spline as a set of small red spheres. The positions of these spheres are passed into the
LatheGeometry constructor, together with a couple of other arguments. In this example we rotate this spline ...
