Hello,
I need to model some bean bags for a 'chill out' interior area and having got so far with a loft technique was wondering if any one had done one before and could offer me some advice as to achieving a better looking item?
I'd looked at using the pressure load tools but the lofting seemed to get closer to the right look - but i'm left wondering if the loosess of the material could be achieved in a better way...
Many thanks
Matt

I think lofting is the way to go. Experiment with a greater number of profiles and with a different orientation of the profiles -- and remember that they don't have to be parallel, or even planar (that is, you can use 3D Splines as profiles). You may find it helpful to enable the "Use compound profile" option; you'll then be able to alter a profile after creating the loft and watch the loft update itself to conform to the revised profile.

If want to go with a different look. The attach sample image was from 3d warehouse and brought in Tc.At the following link is a assortment to choose from a variety of shapes.What you have in your sample jpeg. is fine.Maybe fillet the sharp edges to give a more rounder look and will make circular some.The pressure load tools isn't that easy to control shape formation.
