(in the throat(?) above you end up with a triangle - I still do not really understand correctly whether triangles are no longer an obstacle in this kind of workflow, which they were at the beginning of SubD)

Next you'll start twisting them, then all is lost.
You'll have to start on the twelve steps and put your faith in a higher power...

Thanks Box , HornOxx.

HornOxx, you asked about triangles..... After I exploded the twelve pieces I erased and redrew the flat bottom inside and out so they were all quads. The pairs of triangles at the top just bellow the rim I could eliminate by " soft, smooth, no cast shadows" but I lost to much definition of the crease that way. Leaving them as triangles kept a better look to the vertical grooves. It seems you can cheat on the quads a little sometimes and still get a nice result.

HornOxx, your correct the green, purple colors are from Quadface tools analyze function. I forget about it myself sometimes :lol: .

This is the same strange behaviour I got last year with some meshes. Dunno why, but it seems that some vertices react as a 1.0 crease when subdivided although they are 0 when checked with the crease tool.
I usually delete the problematic edges and redraw the geometry from scratch when that happens.


If you send me one of these models I can have a look into what is going on.

Some more of my weird Vertex tools and SubD stuff. Twisted up the piece on the left, did some copy - array business. Add a few more bits and pieces and I ended up with a hanging lamp. SubD on the twisty bits and bottom trim ring the rest native SU.....

:D :D I think thickness doesn't make sense where it's not to be seen. but did you notice that Box even models the water overflow correctly? :shock: :D :thumb:

Yes of course, it was for find a little default on these voluptuous design beauties! ;)

The cool thing about Subdivision modeling it's that is always a surprise before the final object! :enlight:

In the video pilou posted, does anyone know what plugin the person is using that has an icon which looks like sword?



Sorry about the crappy screen capture... and thanks for any info.

Hi - it could Artisan Subdivide and Smooth (but I'm not sure, however)

Thank you both!
It was Zorro 2... I did not know that was what that tool did... too bad, I could have used that a bunch of times.
Thanks again.

Been fooling about off and on trying to come up with a reasonably decent "human" type figure. Getting close. Still trying to figure out the best approach for head and hands. Started with blocking in half of the monster and then copied and flipped to get both sides. Progress ! :lol:

U-Boot Typ VII
Hi, just a little sunday afternoon exercise again, entirely modeled with SubD and all of it´s associated quad tools. (the idea was to play a little bit with the shape of the old German submarine "Type VII" / rendered in Enscape)
https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/4ee76836-331b-49cd-88bd-c44e10b389e3/U-Boot-Type-VII-NEO
(edit 09-14-2019: added an AO-render, rendered with Shaderlight, combined with a SU line overlay)

Hi everyone! Here's a recent exercise I made with SketchUp 2019, SUbD, VertexTools and QuadFace Tools. It's the head of a corinthian column. I used Thea for SketchUp v2 for the rendered pic.

Hi All - Back in 2017 I modelled Homer Simpson's head and loudly announced that I intend to make the whole guy - someday ;) (viewtopic.php?f=397&t=63826&start=810)
Now, more than two years later, I finally managed to realize this announcement - still without clothes though, but that's again another task - sometime :D
Homer's body was modeled as individual segments first, such as body, arms, legs... and then finally merged into one solid. Only details like eyes, ears and his 3 hairs are added as independent solids. The renderings are made with Enscape and Shaderlight
Enjoy :D

From Hornoxx's brilliant complexity to perhaps the simplest SUbD of all, a Guitar Pic.

Simple rocks. I am a bit SubD challenged meself, but I watched that gif 3 times, then went and did it in about the same time, (a bit longer). Perfick.

That's the trick Baz, start small and play with little shapes and see what you get. Gradually you'll see how to put shapes together to make complex structures.

SubD´s range of possibilities couldn't be better illustrated than with Alsomar´s corinthian column masterpiece and Box´s ingenious Guitar Pic quicky-exercise (both above here) - both are great examples! Thanks for sharing :D

Hi All - To bring my Homer Simpson endless project to an end, I finally decided to put him on his white shirt, his blue pants and his shoes. Finally the winter is approaching here and Homer should not freeze :D
If anyone wants to SubD-play with this thick cuddly yellow guy himself, I´ll add the entire proxy model here...
The rendered model, without SubD-function then, is also available in the 3D Warehouse:

edit: pic2 - did some minor modeling improvements at Homer's mouth
