Can you make it so it doesn't only look like a bunch of lines?

better :) Thinking of what could be done, like the height, twist, number of extrude, simple or catmull type.

Another idea, a evenly space subsurf, which would be the top one compare to the bottom one.

yea, I know, but what could it hurt ? It may save alot of ass, here's my last subsurf idea for now, it's mostly found in CAD programs, it's called edgesurf and I think it would be usefull under Blender subsurf features.

by the way, didn't had time for a cube type view, just use your imagination.

I don't get what you mean...
Could you describe it in words. I see nothing in the images not doable today...

Edgesurf has nothing to do with subsurfs. :roll:

I don't understand either? Please explain the pictures more with words.

isn't edgesurf more comprable to bezier patches? just wondering- its been a while since I've played with cad.
And yeah, some descriptions would be good, I think the pictures alone arn't giving a total idea of what you're suggesting.

I'm just describing a subsurf method, I know it's doable. It's just another method like simple subdivide and catmull clark, clear now ?

I think you mean a ruled surface, not a subsurf method. In AutoCAD an edgesurf is a ruled surface created from 4 planar curves, joined to make a closed loop.
