Booleans  1-20  21-34

Hi,

I am just playing with booleans, really to push MoI to see what I can do.
I was asked if I could/would create some cut crystal glasses (from a friend), I did make them for her within MoI, so I decided to continue to see what I could produce.

I have now started with mainly boolean union/diff (just many sphere)

It is just curiosity/play from me.




I made a quick render in Carrara (using a default HDR scene)



I will go on to make very (small) complex cuts (via boolean) on various shapes to see results.

Great.
Intrigued at how you may have gone about doing it.
More fun for me today!

Manz, it's driving me crazy!
No idea how to do a first stage in MoI. Have got to a sort of "first" stage in other apps (Carrara),

{Please tell us how you went about it.

I got there. A bit rough and maybe the "hard" way!??

Hi Brian,

Sorry, I got called out. But it looks like you worked out how I made it.

I will play more with this.

I am not sure I did my work the same way as yours. Any brief summary of your work flow would be welcome.

AND NOW! you are going to make me (try to) puzzle out how you did this last one all day!

Hi Brian,

The first model is just lots of spheres,

I started with a large sphere for the internal rad,
I then added a small sphere, snapping on the int of the outside of the large sphere.



I cut off the top of the small sphere, then boolean away the large sphere (I made copy of large sphere to clipboard so I could paste back for later booleans), which left me with:-



I then made circular array of the cut sphere:-



I then placed a sphere at the int of 2 of the spheres:-



I then pasted back the large sphere to boolean away from the new small sphere:-



Then back to making array, then just repeated that until I got to the bottom (where I wanted the base to be). Then made boolean union of all the spheres, then added a base.

That is basically it.

I hope I have made it understandable?

- Steve

Thanks mate.
Somewhat different to the way I approached it. I think yours is easier and has better precission and will try it soon.

But that last vase is really driving me mad! Would you give a proceedure for that--perhaps tomorrow!--better if I keep on struggling for a while as then I learn more.

(First method)
Having some fun relating to your little tute principles.

(REALLY need info on the dooing of the second one though!)

Hi Brian,

Looking good there.

>>>(REALLY need info on the dooing of the second one though!)

I will point you in the right direction:-

If you look at the image in post 9, you will see that it is in 12 sections. So, I first created a plain dish/bowl, I made boolean cuts (with lines) to leave me a 12th of the bowl (30 deg) I then created a curve to boolean off the top rad, then created the pattern in 2d and projected to surface. On the projected surface lines I made pipes, that I then boolean out of the surface, I then made circle array with that section, and boolean them together to make the full bowl. I then made fillet around the top edges.

I hope that helps, if not, I will post some pics with a better explanation.

I have started another bowl, this will have much more etching, I have just got to making a nice pattern on the top edge, but MoI is taking a long time in calculating.


up to now:-

My mind is working overtime-----will ponder on all that and be back-------well,---later!
(What great mental fun!)

As you can see Steve, I am learning!

Still need a bit of instructions on getting fine "etching" on multy curved faces though!

Thanks for one of my GREAT learning days.

Brian

Hi Brian,

For the etching, you need to project to surface.

As with the example, at the stage of when you have just the one section, draw the pattern you want to cut out of the surface, make sure it is from one of the main view (it just makes it easier).



Then in the example, I have projected (curve~ project) in the right view onto the outer surface



Then its just a case of creating a pipe (whatever size you want) onto each projected curve,



The boolean them out.

Hi Brian,

I forgot to mention. If you use sweep on the projected lines (sweeping a circle for example), then you can select the "pointy ends" option which can give some good results:-
