 1514.2 In reply to 1514.1 Lyes, Another great tutorial! I like this concept of forming objects from one solid. Can't wait to see what else shows up in this forum made from a sphere. Ed

 Yes very nice tutorial ! This is actually the standard way of nurbs object creation in Truespace ! Let me add also to this thread that you can use any rotational curves object as a starter for this kind of modeling ! If you start with a rotational nurbs object you can ad detail where you need it by adding points . Here I did a more belly shape from a peanuts shaped nurbs object with points added at the heighth of the wateroutlett.... Peter Attachments:

 There are actually quite a few functions in Moi3d that let you model with the show points....... Here is the network function where I just pulled the middle piece upwards that can i.e. give you nice buttons etc. Peter Attachments:

 Here you have a panel ... a loft over 3 curves. You can manipulate the panel the same way as in the tutorial ... with show points so whenever you want to make an object with point manipulation your NOT RESTRICTED TO a sphere ! Peter Attachments:

 1514.7 In reply to 1514.6 I come from a Hexagon type modelling background and the more I learn about MoI the more I am truly amazed! (I have all sorts of programmes including Amapi7.52 through to the latest versions of LightWave andXSI) Combined with the extra potentials for manipulation with the type of apps like 3D Paint and even the simple Vertex Room Displacement Painting of Carrara6Pro---what else do most of us need?
