Metal Fabric - just an exercise

Metal Fabric - just an exercise

Postby HornOxx » Sat Jan 18, 2020 10:04 am

... Hi All, I´m just playing around with only 2 components, trying to imitate a metal fabric :)
This little exercise is native SkUp modeled. Beside Follow Me, just copying and rearranging, mirror, rotate and move. [SkUp 2017 Make, Enscape 2.6.1]

many thanks Liam - yes and no ;)
something "horseshoe"-shaped like this I had seen before. The wavy wires were an attempt to connect these rows then.

... thanks again - to be honest, I have no idea if something like this would be possible in real life. Playing with weavings(?) is interesting however and fun :D

Excellent modeling, but man, it must make for a large file size?

Thanks Box and Bryan :enlight:

wich would be true :puke: especially since I have modelled these small tubes dilettantishly bad and way to big. But since I made a proxy from only one fabric part, for the final rendering model I just added these light proxies.
(The SkUp screenshot above I made just to show the simple weave principle)

Very impressive work! Obviously took a lot of thought and planning.
I remember congratulating myself when I made this, but your work makes mine seem like basket weaving :lol: .

Wow Hellnbak :ecstatic: :thumb: thanks, but your´s is ingenious basket weaving indeed !!! - to lay my few base geometries flat on the floor and to copy paste them is not difficult at all - but how did you bend your fabric like a tire ?!

Thanks, HornOxx. I really don't remember how I did it, but your Metal Fabric is much more impressive to me. Well done :thumb: !
