Recent SubD Project

This is the recent project I have been on which was causing some of the crashes. Typically rendered in maverick but this one just seemed to work better in Octane.

Lots of SubD’s and really enjoyed using the Quad Mesh tool. I didn’t design the logo and took the designer’s vector file. Created a flat plane and ran it through quad masher and then off-set thickness. Or, and I hate to say it, had to go to Modo to ‘Bevel Outward’ the flat plane around the outside edge loop. We have to have this in V8.

The major logo elements were all SubDs from the start and not quad meshed.

Love the new toolset and was very happy to have items go back and forth to Modo without any issue.


Beatiful as always, @PaulS! I never cease to be amazed by your ability to keep the geometry flow so natural and clean :boom:

Thanks very much. It was a challenging project.

The logo design is by Victor Kevruh, who is one of my heroes.

Talking with Travis, he was able to suggest a slight tweak to settings to give me what I was using Modo for. I still love Modo but I think I will be visiting even less now.

Extrude SubD with outer edges selected, use the UVN function and then V…and there it is!!

Thanks Travis!


@PaulS glad to help! I always love seeing your work! And as a scrolly bits kinda guy myself I really loved this one a lot! Fantastic job!

Thanks very much!
Here’s a little more of the WIP. Some detail from a slightly different version.
I’m very happy with the SubD toolset. One of the very best Rhino upgrades ever!


Trully stunning. Can you reveal how many hours you’ve spent on this?

I’ve been on it for about 2 weeks on and off. Modeling time maybe 4 full days.

It’s 25% of what I was expecting. Really quick.
