This is a new format and editing style I am trying out in preparation for new courses. Let me know if you like the structure, flow, and if my fat head is distracting.
Nice job @schultzeworks !
Thanks, @BrianJ … more to come
A quad only topology would be better for subdivision and detailing…

I learned Rhino from your video series. Thank you so much sir.
That is an excellent suggestion. I knew that it was best practice to use quads for Sub-D, but missed that in my efforts to keep it short and sweet.
I will revisit this soon and see if there is a way I can build an arm to get the results you have illustrated.
Thank you! I appreciate this.
That is very cool to hear! Thanks for letting me know.
Thanks for your reply. I see two efficient ways to create a 5-star.
- create a mesh triangle inside a pentagon. Subdivide the mesh triangle once. Convert it into a SubD and use the radiate command.
- Start with a SubD quad face and radiate it 5 times. Subdivide once and stitch the star points. Find the radiate pattern again and drag the star point outwards

Greate video! I made a grasshopper defination which follows your modeling steps in Rhino.
You have some beautifully crafted C# Scripts, thank you for sharing the cluster. I can learn good things from it.
You are welcomed. We share knowledge and learn from each others.
