Close octagonal hole with nice topo

Recommended Posts

Hi Cafe

 

Im closing up this octagonal hole on a sphere Im making with equal sized squares as I'm gonna give thickness when done.

Ive ended up with this hole in the top, which I have managed to close with quads by subdividing 4 of the strips and i think that will work for me, but it doesn't seem a very elegant solution and Im sure someone more skilled would pop this shut in seconds and probably not subdivide the other strips either which i felt was a cop out.

 

My brain doesn't seem to think too laterally when it comes to these modelling issues, or be able to visualise the solution.

 

Any tips gratefully received, file here with the hole still in the bottom and the arms not subdivided on bottom half, not quite all joined together yet.

  • Got it !

     

    my first attempt ended up with the same problem but smaller, i had to look really carefully at your drawing whilst i was doing it but now it all makes sense.

     

    many thanks. The clean solution I was after.
