I'll have to admit I sort of pinched this idea from a lightwave plug-in thing that I saw on the net. I can't remember what it was called or who wrote it - but this is sort of like that - so credit to this bloke for that thing wot e wrote. This ones called 'Draw EX' standing for draw extrude - and thta's just what you do. You pick some faces on your object then click Draw EX - then you scribble a pah down and then extrude those faces along the path. I've thrown in a couple of loft tools as well.
