I'm working through the cross skinning tutorial section 13.3. Up to this point when I receive different results than what is shown, I've been able to find my error/incorrect setting and fix it.
Now however, I'm stuck on the cross skinning operation. I've created the two perpendicular ellipses as insructed, settings as noted, but continue to get the following message: For the cross skin operation, an improper number of points of a source touch (or are close to) the path. The tolerence may need to be adjusted. ID=O.88
What am I missing?

The Cross Skinning operation is very sensitive to the sharing/location of points between the sources. There are several methods for this tutorial to work as shown. One is to create Facetted Elllipses. Another is to use the Insert Point tool (with the Line Editing tools) to create matching points on the Smooth Ellipses. And yet one more is to draw the Ellipses as Smooth but change the Cross Skin Tolerance setting to a much larger amount (for example 10').
Does this now work?

Yes, this is what I thought looked amiss. I just wasn't sure how to go about correcting it.
I went with the add point tool suggestion. Worked like a charm.
Thanks for the assist.
