Ultimately, I want to make mirrored ribbons, wider at the bottom/furthest from the bow-knot. I created one mirrored bezier curve and rotated its duplicate (with the 3D cursor) at one end of the curve; I then made another curve (random shape for demonstration purposes) spanning the maximum width between what will be the sides of each ribbon. Is there a way to bridge the side-of-ribbon edge loops with the third curve, rather than the shortest path between points? Or is there a way to vary the extrusion width of ribbons generated using this method prior to converting to mesh (after which I know I could use proportional scaling)? Thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ I had not, until you showed it to me. It'll certainly come in handy on other projects, but not for what I'm looking for right now. Thank you though! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Can't post as answer; I'll just leave this here for now. Took me a while to figure out where the loft tool was hiding in v2.90 (Glorfindel's answer at question #1503 gave me the hint I needed). It's under Edit > Surfaces > Loft in the N menu on Object Mode, and I was able to use the two longer curves to get a good result. $\endgroup$
