Modelling from shapes

These models were made from shapes in 3d studio max. The chess piece and the flower like shape was created from paths that were imported from illustrator files. An extrude modifier was then used to make the path into a 3d shape. The chess piece was modelled using lathe modifier and the loft modifier was used for the spiral shape.

I found the lathe, extrude and loft modifiers easy to use, although I had one problem where the chess piece came out squashed, this was because I scaled the path before adding the lathe modifier.
