3d Print Curved Roof Shingles?

Postby dang8 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 6:16 pm

Please forgive me if this is the wrong section to ask... if there is a better section, please let me know :)

I have a Form2 from Formlabs and I'm trying to model and print a 1:160 scale model of a castle. I'm running into trouble modeling shingles (or bricks) on a curved surface. Some of the roofs are especially challenging because they have a complex curve.

Does anyone have any tips or know of any tutorials? Thanks!!!!!!

You should get great results with Fredo6's Tools on Surface and JointPushPull.
