All one solid group. You can see the straight copy, outside to the right, before I deformed it with Vertex tools.

Hi guys! Super quick subd practice, also wrap-red, sent to substance and back to sketchup again for some rendering tests. This is so fun! (kudos to alsomar for the tips)

Still shaking off the rust... Model the small section in the center. Copy it around your circle as on the left. Squeeze and stretch with Vertex tools until it suits you. Run SubD and there you have it. Old school swag lampshade. Just add some metal bits and textures, ready to hang....

Here's one you don't automatically think of using SUbD on. I created the threads using a standard 24 segment circle in the usual manner, then tapered them using FredoScale. Then using QFT I converted all the faces to quads so I could SUbD it and get these lovely smooth spindles. The rest was added after the SUbD.

Thanks HornOxx, but there's always something that catches you out. To me the colour of the screws and the shape of the galvanized bracket just aren't right. But this is a SUbD thread so it's not so important.

Here's a study of a custom golf club I cranked out for one of the partners in my firm. Make of that what you will. Fun to model tho.

Something to keep in mind, SUbD and using quads isn't just about smoothing faces, the quads allow so much more control of the faces that make up your shapes.
The grid structure of the quads let me use Components onto Faces (onto Face Collections) to position all the cones evenly.
I could add and remove loops to thicken areas and thin others very easily too.

I'm happy to see how quad-based workflows have caught on within SketchUp users. For a while I felt like a raving lunatic back when I first created QuadFace Tools.

Always great to see your creations Box!

Btw, do you have some quad that are not fully QuadFace quads? I see some unexpected uneven edges in the back there:

Yeah something odd happened there Thomas. They look right before using SUbD but you get that odd line of wobble. It was inside so I wasn't too concerned. The QFT convert often needs a bit of fixing.

... what a cool idea again Box !! - is this the way you created your cool "galaxy-like flying" lights recently? - somehow with a hidden quad geometry then? :thumb: :) but why aren't the prickles(?) inside too? :o

The file is on a different computer, but I'm not sure if I still have the control, I normally unsubd them when I start playing around with them and render, as sometimes it seems to effect the render time.
So I probably saved it unSUbD'd. I'll have a look tomorrow.

It was too much with them inside, needed a bit of contrast. Bit hard on the mollusc too.

I liked Hornoxxs Autoscooter model, so I did a quick scene before I went to sleep....

Very very new to using Quad face tools and SubD. Tons of respect and appreciation to Tom Tom for creating these tools.
