Default twisted surface

ok. i have created a convex shape and would like to loft this shapes curve to a different shaped curve. The loft goes ok but its twisted in the mddle. I can use the manipulator tool but it seems to just flatten the loft in the middle when it untwists it

Check the direction of your curves. If one curves goes a differnt direction to the other, and then you loft you will end up with a twist. Just select one of the curves and go to edit curves, reverse curve direction. That should fix it.
There's nothing normal about normals. In FACT i think the are abnormal.
