Increase number of segments in lathed object
« on: January 04, 2009, 05:07:43 pm »

Im making a large vertical cylinder and I only wnat lots of egdes running vertically.  How can I increase the number of segments when I lathe to more than 32?  Subdividing works on both vertical and horizontal but I only need more detail on the vertical.

It seems that in lathing the segments are limited to 32.

Depending on what you are making can you not start with a plain cylinder which can have many more segments ?
