Created a cowl using the loft command (surfaces) from different profiles and rails.   The surface appears smooth all around but the bottom side shows some wrinkles/irregularities.   I checked all my rails and profiles to make sure they are tangent.  

Any pointers/advise to fix this would be greatly appreciated

Hey @thunderbolt47,

You have way too many spline points. You must reduce the number of points to get a better shape and control!

Hi @benk,

Thanks a lot for the suggestion.  Removing points eliminated the wrinkles.

The necking at the bottom corners is still there.  Any suggestions?  Do you think I need to create rails a 45 degree angles to straightening the profile at the bottom?

@thunderbolt47,

Yes, it seems you will have to create another rail.
