Making a metal wire cage


Recommended Posts

WOW! I'm blown away, Limon!   5187.gif           I can't wait to try this!  The gemstone looks fabulous!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

(P.S.  You should edit your post on my faceted gem thread and add a link to this tut.)

Thank you everyone for the positive feedback, I'm happy to know that you find the tutorial well written :D (unclarity was my biggest worry when posting it)

 

Skullbonz, I can think of two seams occuring in this tutorial. The first one is when using Bevel Object, just strech those parts of the grid with a selection. The other one is some excess pixels from trail plugin, there some good old eraser should do the trick!

 

And Seerose, that is a great result! I love the ripple effect, and the cage makes me think of Earth's magnetic field protecting us from solar particles. Thank you for sharing your result! :)

Here's my result, Limon...

This has many, many possibilities, depending on the picture you choose.

 

I used this pic, which I made years ago in Incendia, a 3D fractal program...     goldenthreads.png

 

Thank you, Limon.      :beer:  :pizza:  :cake:  :mtdew:

Wow @Limon - that is certainly a very impressive tutorial you have here.  Shape 3D has always given me the heeby-jeebies with all those dials.  You obviously, like @Welshblue before you, have a knack for it.  Fantastic and here is my attempt.
