has anyone worked through this trackpad excersise on level 2?
I am assuming a lot of it is guess work… such as how high to raise the ends of the outer curve shape?..how to design the left and right elispe detail?.. Iv been trying to adjust the outer curve through ‘adding points’ then adjusting with gumball (not shown in model as I deleted again…)… and then using a ‘rail revolve’ to cover from a central 3.4cm height axis in the middle… (with a conic curve leading from the outer rail. I have also tried lofting but for some reason it doesnt like it. I also have struggled to make the conic curve shape ‘join’ to the rail… I glanced at an image on vimeo… ( this was all i could find)… and it appeared that the outer edge was raised all along rather that just at front and back. Am just a bit confused how to proceed as I keep having to start again. If anyone could spare a minute and just advise how they would go about this that would be really great. Slow learning but getting there. Thanks! Ashley
