    Creating Rounded Cube Family- Help Please!!

    I can't figure out how to get my sweep to correctly turn my cube extrusion into a rounded or filleted cube. I haven't used a sweep to create a new form in several years and can't figure it out, but need to desperately. Please help me figure out the best way to do this

    (looking for something like this https://t00.deviantart.net/OHmW43U85...94-d40vdi8.jpg)

    Thanks

    Create the cube as an extrusion, then use a void sweep to round off the top & bottom.

    and as a side note - deviant art is a great site but I'd wager that some companies have it filtered. I'd recommend either uploading directly to the forum or using a different image host.

    ...or, round off by adding vs. subtracting.

    in hindsight I probably like that method more.
