Continuing on with Part Three (A). Here we use NURBS surfaces to form the left instrument panel, convert it to polygons and attach it to the geometry using the Append to Polygon tool. The Bridge Tool could have been used here instead of the Append Polygon tool, but opted for the latter to give me a little more control.
In Part Three (B) we will deal with the instrument profile on the right side of the sextant. Thanks.
