Diagonal risen wireframe
« on: October 30, 2008, 03:49:14 pm »

Hi all,
here you can see a little render of mine.

Nothing really special I know, but since I like the final result I decided to share it.

This is how I did it:

1 - open an almost-all-quads face mesh
2 - select all edges
3 - connect edges
4 - switch to point-edit mode and invert selection
5 - delete points
6 - add edges where needed and fill holes
7 - select all edges and bevel them a bit
8 - extrude faces (with the extrude-connected tool)
9 - grow face selection
10 - apply different material to selected faces
11 - select all edges and bevel a bit more
12 - final result, ready to be subdivided

And here below I attach the pictures.

Feel free to use/modify this technique if you like it, you're welcome.

I like it!  It kind of looks like Spiderman's costume in the movie's.

I have a question about step 9 - How do you "grow face selection"?

Hi SirBonovox,
you can find that command inside edit > select.

I'm glad you liked it, but hey don't tell The Edge, he wouldn't be happy to know that we cut edges in Anim8or, eheheheh - ok, that's quite silly humour, please forgive me.

Ooops, missed this... Yes, net effect is way simpler and clearer than diagonal risen wireframe... I think I have to think twice before naming my threads ;)

Glad you liked it yetipenguin.
