Button tufted modeling

Hey all,

While surfing the usual 3d haunts, in one of the forums there was a question asked about modeling a button tufted chair in SolidWorks especially the button tufted area, so this got me to try it in MoI.
I usually do this when I haven't got a project idea, I roam around the net looking for inspiration and I usually come across these questions in the forums, asking 'How do you do this in.....this software' so I see if I can do it in MoI, I thought this little challenge come up pretty good in MoI, the reason why I thought I'd share the result.

The lighting parameters I chose was to check tangency and gave it that '60's shiny vinyl feel :)



Cheers
~Danny~

That looks great Danny, a curious question though as to why someone would want to model that in Solidworks. I use it myself and and just don't see that as the right tool for the job.

Impressive Danny. Would you show us a screen capture with the construction lines visible. I'm curious to see how it is divided up.

I haven't delved into the lighting and styles side of the beta much. Is that shiny effect all just down to lighting? Very cool.

Turned out really great Danny!

I'm still getting used to seeing such color in MoI screenshots... :)

Thanks!

Ok, I've attached the two main segments for anyone who wants to have a look, you copy or array these segments to make up the size you want. Any questions, feel free.

@ Mark here are the lighting settings, as I mentioned before, I use this setting to view tangency of adjoining surfaces.



Cheers

[EDIT] I haven't had time to render this up, it would be nice to see this in leather........if anyone has the time.

Hey DannyT,
Thanks for sharing. I never thought to network something like that for such an organic or soft body look.

Hi Anis,

Yes, the blue curves as the profiles and the green curves as the guides.

Hi Danny,

Great job on nutting this out, making it work & then sharing it with all of us, Well done!!

@Anis, I've used Network to create those same surfaces & it came out fine using the Blue & Green curves you show there.

regards Colin

I was wondering and experimenting if the "Maintain Tangent" was used with regard to the sweep to keep things curvature.

Nobody ever rendered this for you after you gave us the file.. Here's a quick shot at it.. I think it would need to be UV mapped to do a very good job because of the segmentation in the puffed area.. I havnt gotten around to UV mapping yet, so i used a Box projection here...

Hi Danny,
Yeah it's shot.. A good exercise in learning it's in's and outs.

The first one is suade, though it can be better looking. I had to change the texture mapping to planar, because the UV's of the surfaces need to be remapped to work right with the Shot textures, but it definatley changed the look from the intention.. I think I will have to learn UV texture mapping to get the results I want from it. I am working on different exporting options to see if there is a way around it...

Thanks though....

For UV mapping this it might be easier to split the solid into surfaces before you export it. Then in the poly app you can deal with UV mapping each surface separately.
