ok,
because i come from Germany its a bit complicated to tell you what i mean, so i will show you an image,
My Question, how can i do this rounded "foot" (you know, i mean the long thing :oops: :lol: , where the monitor is on, 0o )
the other things of the iMac are not so different to model, but this thing, makes me angry,
if i use the tool "cover" , i am only able to model the upper "foot",
but the rounding is difficlt, cover donīt work


thank you for your help!

Hi,
you should start with the sweep object. After you've the basic shape of the stand you can make the sweep object editable and add the other datails (like she small roundings at the end) with the polygon tools. At the end you can make the wire hole with the boolean object.
