I’m almost embarrassed to ask, but why doesn’t it work regardless of the order in which I click the curves. I just can’t figure it out: D
if you want more specific answers, post the .3dm file.
if it is a cylinder, and red, blue, cyan, green curve are the same, a simple _revolve should do the work.
other suspects are:
_loft + _matchSrf,
and there is also some great technics using Control-Point modelling…(see Rhino training level 2)
kind regards, -tom
patch also does an ok job of doing such trickeries.
Hello - it seems like maybe you are starting with a relatively ambitious project before quite understanding how the surfacing tools work - I’d step back and make sure you fully understand
more stuff here:
if you are looking for a way to close such legs with round endings, consider using pipe, with 2 different radi and caps set to round you will have a fast and maybe sufficient solution for the entire legs.
the conjunction in the middle can be done with blend surface, maybe not too ambitious but finding the right tools requires a bit experience with rhino of course.
thanks i have somehow managed to get the feet with the round ends done by myself: D but now i’m trying to get the conjunction in the middle. It doesn’t have to be exactly like the photo. I probably thought that I would use sweep to rail on all three feet and then use blend surface, but unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. Do you happen to have a simple idea? : D
well i did a very quick build, so excuse the ugly disproportions i am sure you will do a better job
i would use BlendSrf from one leg to the other
trim it like so
and rotate copy it
you may want to trim a bit of each edge off and blend that with each other for a better look but i leave that to you.
now draw a line from an ortho view and trim a part off
create your alien bubble head and trim a bit off either
now use BlendSrf and finished is your invasionator.
haha nice, that you even thought about it Thanks again
If I’m lucky enough to catch you here
Do you have any idea how to create such a pattern?
Unfortunately I don’t have a good photo from the front -.-
i am not fully sure what i am looking at, my first guess would have been a shoe sole, but it looks far more like some sort of alien intestines taken straight from a mid 80s VHS movie
those elements i can decipher could be made with patch. create a curve and extrude it, this surface will act as a tangency helper.
Patch and check the option Adjust tangency.
i cant decipher much more, if you need more guesses, then pls describe what the heck that is and/or provide better pictures.
