Make a Screw or Bolt. Image Heavy

Recommended Posts

Amazing! And the method of producing the threads by tilting the screw and applying the Texture Rounder is so clever!

You nailed it! (I think that  "You skrewed it!" does not sound right 😁). Never before,  I stood so amazed in front of a bunch of screws and bolts.

<3 @welshblue!

 

We can never pay for your trouble with money.

Thank you for your effort and all tutorials. :cake: :coffee:

In the coming days, I'll give it a try.

Nor would I take any 😘  I share because I want others who may not know  see what PDN is capable of ... plus I never charge friends in offline life so wouldn't the people I call online ones.  Be it rebuilding an engine or designing a poster  ... I'm happy to give my time for free when it's appreciated.  And for those continuously repping my efforts,  I can only say a big thanks.    It's appreciated

 

@dipstick ... Thanks.  Great texture, it really sits well on there

Total fluke, when my hand had a fibromyalgia electric shock and spasm when holding the mouse, and decided to run it to see what happened.😔

Thanks mate - but honestly I couldn't do these things without your intuitive plugins.  It actually started out as a spark plug

 

@toe_head2001 @lynxster4 @Pixey and @Seerose ... and everyone above - thanks for the reps - will be back with my own

I made that grunge texture a while back in PDN. I often use it to simulate rust. I also used it to make this rusty chain.

Family Friendly Forum ... that is damn good.  My wife wanted to know why I was staring at it - the shadowing alone is superb, as is the whole atmosphere

You and Woodsy are the kings of animation - should be an award here for it - it'll save someone getting gunned down in a mad rampage every year 😉

Another excellent tutorial @welshblue :star:  thank you!  I learned something new as well with this one, I never knew about the 'corner size' option before now 😳

 

I've never had so much fun screwing around making these 😂😆

Great tutorial @welshblue!  You are always so innovative!  <3

 

Wonderful how a little tilt before using Texture Object Rounder gives you just what you want.  I did that on a couple of my text tuts.

 

Here's my go at it...do you have your tetanus shot?

Really nice results @Seerose @lynxster4 and @Pixey.  All are unique in their own ways.

 

I'm working on getting a fully 3D version - it just needs some tweaking ... and a few more brain cells to get there

 

@Pixey ... the ability to change corner size is invaluable when I'm making images.  I use it in almost everything.

 

Thanks to all those who repped it.  @TrevorOutlaw ... I know it's my best out of all the ones I've wrote, and can be very realistic, as I'll show at a later date.  Thanks

Really nice again @Seerose

 

I'm glad it's easy to understand.  It's always easy for the writer because they know the steps off by heart ... especially when you've done it about 50 times in a row for the best results 😜

Very inspiring tutorial. Thanks @welshblue!
This is my first try, but I used ImageDistortion plugin instead of Wobble.
I used Vertical Distortions and Shapes = Wave with the following settings:
Intensity = 0.07
Curvature = 22.0
I rotated the object only 5 degrees.

That's a nice outcome. Alternatively you could also use "Diagnal Lines" plugin to get whatever thread pitch count you want. Here I made a left-hand threaded bolt.

Nice and interesting interpretations @NSD @dipstick

 

I must admit to having only played with 'my way' ... so will be interesting to see what threads are possible.

 

Out of interest NSD what was your starting shape/ size of ?

They look like the ones used on my dental implants. 

 

I've got visions of you on a hydraulic ramp and a set of allen keys in your mouth 😨

Thank you all for the reputation points.
@welshblueI starting with a shape of 150x500px.

 

The image below was made in the same way except that I cut the sharp edges of the waves.
