Oh! I like this thread! :thumb: :thumb:

This has been my test model for a long time - though I never got very far because I end up writing new extensions and tools... :/

Still just mocking the major features.

With the complicity of the incredible TopMod! :mrgreen:
(make "save as obj" inside Topmod at the end of your creation)
I can't imagine the possibilities!
(import OBJ file inside SU MAKE by the fabulous Tig Plugin) :thumb:

I want to set up something - I just don't know exactly how that will be. Maybe a 3dwarehouse collection. Maybe SCF got some system for this..?
Will look at adding a section on the site when I figure out the technical. Until then it's this thread and the FB page.

Nice model btw - can you show us the wireframe?

Nice model Box. Did you use plain SU or did you also use QFT?

All vanilla Thom. Just drew one quarter with push pull, scale etc. Removed a few faces. Quick flip and rotate and Robert is your mother's brother.

I agree with you!! This is great.......

What the heck is QFT? Also, what rendering engine did you use Box?

I still consider myself a novice even though I have been using SU for over 2 years now. The types of model I have been doing are rather basic compared to some of this stuff. I am trying to learn.

Now for a more serious question: If I want to use SubD, what other plugins should I use/learn to go with it? (i.e. Vertex Tools, Quad Tools, etc.)

I would love to learn how to do something like this. What is the best way to learn and what other tools should I acquire (also in previous post).

My grandson is learning to use SU in the 8th grade at his school and I would love to be able to help him learn how to do stuff like you, Box, Cotty and some others have been showing.

QFT is QuadFace Tools - it would normally be an important tool in creating meshes that subdivide efficiently in SUbD.

I'd recommend starting with this page: http://evilsoftwareempire.com/subd/quads
Follow the links that describes topology and at end there is a link to other extensions that work well with quads.

Are all the units in the last picture the same construction? Interesting that where they abut the hexagon shape is preserved but at the open edges it is smoothed. I mean, I don't know what else could happen, but are any edges selectively creased etc?

It's one group with loose geometry in it.

No. (You can download the model and play with it...)
