This tutorial provides a starting point for curve-based modeling. It introduces three rough categories of curve-based-modeling methods: extruding 2D shapes, inflating 2D shapes, and drawing 3D curves. This tutorial introduces representative methods that yield positive results while also exposing several issues related to curve-based modeling.
