creating a pebble

Hi all,

I'm trying to create a kind of asymmetric pebble with a flat bottom. I'm really not sure how to do it. The yellow line is the shape of the pebble I'd like and the black 'dome' is the profile but if I loft, the middle section looks good but the edges remain flat. Could someone help please?

Many thanks!
Gunter

One possibility : Make a revolve with a rail ;)

Hi Gunter, yes Rail Revolve could be good for making something like that using only a couple of profile curves.

For using Loft, you'd probably need to make several sections ending with a point at the top with the point in the same plane as the last top profile curve, and then use the option for "Loft Style = Loose":
