Subd ornament

I created this design long ago as a 2d piece for my grandparent’s 65 year marriage anniversary and converted it into a 3d model using SubD.

The original design in 2d:


Good work and gift :slight_smile:

How did you convert the 2D ( lines) into 3D shape with sub-D?

@sciensman most is done with append face and drawing quads. It’s in fact simple, but a bit tedious in Rhino to accomplish. After the basic layout is in place, the flat shape is thickened and refined.

I understood a little. You filled all the 2D sketch with append face command (with close points that is a tiresome work) and after the sketch was filled completely you did extrude.


What about the sharp tips of the leaves and branches and also the variable veins on the leaves?
