Take a look at the screenshot, in the Right view, I'm trying to get that curve of the case, but I'm not sure how to curve that entire section.

Do i have to do each point individually?

Here's the screenshot: http://www.dropmocks.com/mBnGtF

you might be able to use Soft Selection in the Move tool but probably you would have to change the order you build the spline in. You can do the outline spline to get the corner shapes, then do a Soft Select move to get the back curve shape but only add the indents in the top after the move since if those existed before they would move too much during the soft select move. If you know about Soft Select try that if not I could do a quick vid to show you.

Hey Brian, I tried doing that with no luck, perhaps I'm doing it wrong. A quick vid would be awesome!

Here's a zip file of the project if it helps: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5t833n1or48mexz/iPad%20Modeling.c4d.zip

Thanks much for recording that Brian! Now that I see it in action that helps. I'll go back and see what I can do.

Thanks!
