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.)

The half sphere map setting in Shape 3D could do this also without as many steps. Good job with this one though. 

 

How do you hide or blend the seam where the two halves meet?

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:

Lynxster that is a great result, thank you for sharing!

I love the onyx inside the cage, and using the fractal gave some really nice texture to the cage. Well done!  :cake:

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.

Seerose, that is a very nice result, thank you!  The Incendia pic proved to be great for this tut ;)

Beautiful renditions of the wire cage from Limon's tutorial. I will most definitely be trying this in the future. Gorgeous!
