If you remember me from the tsplines days, this will be familiar…
I tried to turn it up a bit with fading surface details and some nurbs booleans and detailing at the end. I recorded my build so I’ll edit that footage together and get it posted in a week or so (can’t reveal all my secrets too early;-) I’ll post my model in a few days as a hint and for study, but I want you to try from scratch first…
Pretty happy with the result given the time put into it, could always be better, but that’s life as a designer eh?
and please post your results- good and bad, and any pain or friction points along the way-
Original sketch (no comments on my scrubby drawing…
Nice to see this project again, Kyle. I’m so rusty on T-Splines, that I’m looking forward to the tutorial. Sure glad Rhino picked up the baton!
This one was fun but got away from me a bit and turned into a 4hr build…
BUT… I’m happyish with how it came out…could be better in several areas (insert overly critical designer nitpicking sequence) , but that would have been a full day build to make it “done” so I decided to pull the plug at this point and hope that there are some useful insights to be gained by watching me beat on it -
Speaking of rusty, T-Splines had a pretty nice set of video tutorials. Is Rhino planning on the same for SUBD?
if onnnnnnly rhino now had the guy that used to do those… >casually points to self<
(non sarcastic answer: yes, we are going to be doing lots of those…if you remember I did the iron for tsplines way back when…thus this challenge)
Good news, Kyle. Looking forward to those very much. Thank you.
Another day with time to spare… here’s a 60’s inspired iron for ya:
All subd except the cord which is a curve with curvepiping.
Old coal iron in 10’
all sub-d and cagedit good result
Nice! That’s an good era for inspiration
Here is a time lapse of my entire build… it was about a 2:47 min total model, but I sped it up so it goes by in under 30 min.
I love what you all did with this one! keep it up!!
that is very cool!! I love the styling! You are seeing the power and especially the speed of subd now!!
So not an iron as such, but a quick sketch of a garment steamer concept. Pain points were mainly my own lack of sub-d experience, so getting the ridge along the edge right took too long, but I learned a lot. Still a lot of details missing, but I think I’ll leave it here for now - it’s great fun doing these challenges @theoutside - keep’em coming And shut lines on Sub-D’s are great - easy to add little details quickly. Now McNell just need to squash the “can’t hide objects with shut lines without recalculating the whole thing”-bug mentioned in another thread.
Let’s hope grandma doesn’t use it next to the phone, or her ear might get burned if someone calls
This is you!!
Awesome work!! keep it up!!
I’m not quite sure what to make of being compared to Murray’s “Bob Wiley” character - hopefully you (or anybody else, for that matter) won’t go full Richard Dreyfuss and plot to kill me because I’m an annoying neurotic
I need to find and rewatch What About Bob!
ha! no… just tapping into Bob’s unbridled enthusiasm about doing something new! no sinister implications intended or implied-
