Seeking upholstery suggestions

Postby davidheim1 » Sat Nov 24, 2018 11:27 pm

moran loveseat.png
I've been working on a model of this loveseat off and on for a couple of weeks. I'd like to show the tufting on the back, but I'm not sure how to accomplish that. I've tried using the Sandbox tools, but with little success. I suppose SubD would work, but I have no experience with that plugin. Any suggestions?
Best,

Some interesting models, but not a lot of hard information in the thread. It looks as if he's using Vertex Tools or SubD, but I can't tell.
Thanks for the tip, though. Much appreciated.

David, posting questions like this in the Woodworking section sort of limits who sees it. You have to choose to see this category.

But here is a quick gif showing you the very basics of making tufting.

Thanks, Box, for taking the time to do the GIF. It looks as if SubD is what I need. I was hoping I could avoid buying a plugin to finish this model. Oh, well.

There are several ways I can think of to do it, I responded to your comment that there was little info on how it was done with Vertex tools and SUbD.
You could achieve good results with Curviloft or even follow me. You just need to work with multiple sections in a suitable configuration.

tufting test.png
Curviloft will work but it's time-consuming. The image is a test I did just now. It entails creating one tufted square and copying it repeatedly. That's OK for the flat part of the back, but it will probably get tricky when I try to create tufts on the curved part of the piece.

Nice model David. Thanks for sharing your process and problems. Let us know how you finally decided to finish the model.

SubD and Vertex Tools were on sale today from SketchUcation. I bought both and will probably use them for the tufting. If I can learn how to use these plugins, that is. Stay tuned.
