Help with Modelling a Chair

Postby Rick Posthumus » Tue Jan 16, 2018 5:34 pm

I'm new to modelling furniture so I'm struggling with this one. I've downloaded Curviloft to help but I'm still not sure what the best way to go about tackling this would be. I've attached a picture of the chair, sorry it's so small - it's the only reference I have. Any tips or suggestions will be appreciated.

You can also use round corners by Fredo will be sufficient for your models above

And for more organic furnitures SubD + Vertex Tools By Thomthom and / Or Artisan by Dale Martens

Yours looks quite a bit better than mine. Could you give a point form explanation as to how you went about achieving that?

Hi Alvis, i wathed the vid, you are a legend. How did you make the crease (where the 2 parts of the real chair meet) or did I miss somthing?

Alvis, great video!
@2.15, why not just JPP (noborders mode) to offset she shell?
2nd question: How would you make (KEPENG A GOOD TOPOLOGY)this groove between 2 parts?
Could you add this part to the vid?
Thanks in advance

I missed this step. It's a little secret. Just have separated from the back the sitting. And filled the gap . After a little push out.

Yes It would be a solution to use the JPP. But the toplogy is distorted.
