Hi All,

 

Struggling with coming up with a good way to model the bowl and cup in the attached picture. Does anyone have any good ideas to get me started?

 

Thanks

 

Dave

Here take a look at this file.

You can study the ghosted objects to learn how I modeled this cup

I think i got there in the end.

Here is a list of the steps based on the ghosted work Dan left:

 

1. Create the scallop shape by drawing a half profile with the vector line tool. Mirror copy and Nurbs blend the two halves together.

2. Nurbs reconstruct the new shape to have a length & depth of 2, to give the shape a center line. Move the centre out to curve the shape.

3. Create the cup body by revolving a vector line.

4. Rotate copy the scallop shape around the cup body.

5. Two way surface split the scallop shapes with the cup body.

6. Delete the unwanted parts.

7. Stitch the remaining parts and round.

 

Thanks for all the help Dan, if there's any shortcuts to what i've outlined please let me know!

 

Dave

Hi Dave

 

Basically you nailed it.

The only short cut is to use trim&stitch instead of two way surface split. This way in the end everything is already stitched.

I believe the technique shown here would work as well.

Thanks FZnoob, 

 

I had a go using this technique, and the results are ok, the main issue i had was that there is some puckering on the edges and i couldn't get a perfectly smooth bowl shape. See attached picture.

Hutchy,

You might need some more geometry in that area. I did this in less than 5 minutes

Hey it's working now! See attached

I think it was something to do with our IT/Firewall.

We have been having all sorts of weirdness for the past few days.
