    here is what I have so far, close up of the column grooves and columns Houdini nodes.  some things translated like the dissolve, others took some figuring and help from Houdini users.  as I said before, you can model in Houdini but what you can do with a few clicks in C4D, takes more effort in Houdini.

     

    Funnily enough, the totally parametric nature of Houdini would actually help me make these tips :) 

    Got a new one for you, as requested !

  • Still on the columns theme, this time we're going to start making an Ionian Capital. Why not a Corinthian Capital to match the columns ? Simply because that won't fit into a couple of GIF tips. The Doric Capital on the other hand is too simple, so Ionian is our friend because it's mid-level and looks great, even atop our previous Corinthian columns. And we can do it in 2. And there is historical precedent for this sort of thing - columns that combine multi-styles like this are called composites.

     

    So here's Part 1 of that.

    I am aware of the odd grammatical error and typos :) Sorry about that - ScreentoGIF won't let me go back !

    And I can't distribute the reference, but you can find it where I did.

    WOW, that is great.  it may take some time and figuring out how to do some of this in Houdini.

    some of the things done in parametric modeling is a quick way to do it and you can change things on the fly especially if you make a digital asset out of it.

  • Righty - it was about time I did another one of these, so this time, let's make ourselves a 4-Way Gothic Fan Vault  in just 30-odd easy steps !

    Of all the various vault types this is perhaps the most challenging to model so hopefully I can help to show how best to get started with your under-structures...

     

    You can use these techniques as the basis for this sort of thing...

    This is all-quads but no SDS, and medium poly density so stands up to some fairly close camera-work and with a few small modifications is suitable for turning into a MoGraph maze of them if needed... anyway - enjoy.

    If you'd like Part 2 where, where we could make some fan struts, and a plinth centrepiece and sort out the UVs, let me know below !

    Believe it or not, I did go to the manual first.

    That's fair comment - surprisingly that information is not on that page ! 🙂 I'll suggest they improve that !

  • Still very much on a Gothic theme, this time we're making an  SDS Polygon Quatrefoil you can use with your Gothic Archways etc...

    We'll UV it nicely while we're at it, so enjoy that...
