Lightwave Edge Smoothing

Lightwave Edge Smoothing

Lightwave Edge Smoothing

Hi! I'm trying to model a Wind Turbine in Lightwave which consists of morphing a lot of basic shapes together to create the complex shape I need. To make it look neat, however, I somehow need to create a smooth skin over some of the 'joins' between the objects.

For example, I need the join between the disc and the capsule:

To be smoothed to look like this:

I've played around with 'Create Skin' and 'Curves', etc but they just seem to make some crazy, off the wall, jagged mess and the instructions and help that come with Lightwave have clearly been written only for people who already know how to do it as I can't make head nor tail of some of the instructions!

Please help! My 3D modelling life would be SO much easier if I could crack this!

Thanks xxx
