I am a complete beginner. The first task I have thought of doing is to create a drinking glass or a barrel-like container which has a mathematical (closed, non-circular, non-square) curve at the bottom and turning into another curve or a square at the top.
I see various ways of slicing, but can I also build up a solid from say 300 slices?
Can I use equations or will I need those 300 curves to be imported somehow? Creating 300 bmp's will be easy but probably not easy to import.
