What do you reckon to this?

Well it's lovely and even and all that, but it's not useful topology for making that center divot 🙂

Hang on, I am still thinking about what is the ideal edge flow here...

Yeah, I think it's something more like this...

I think at this sort of poly density we'd be needing an FFD to shape it now...

  • Im not sure if I follow what you've done here CBR. It looks great but Im not sure if my model will allow me to replicate this so easily. Could you share your c4d file just so I can have a little look?

  • Might have to go back again to what you did first off and as you didnt have the same amount of edges going right round the model because I see you extruded inside to get your side parts first whereas I just bridged the two planes together to form the fronts.

  • Great thanks CBR. Will have a good look at this and see how best to replicate.

    You're welcome. If you want to curve that front inset bit, FFD with restriction tag works a treat for that sort of thing...

  • Hi CBR

    Thanks for your ongoing support on this one 👍

    When you say restriction tag, is that something you can in R20 and above? In R19 I dont see the option to save a selection tag for that deformer.

    Thanks

    No, that's in all versions back to at least R10....

    Create your selection tag on the OBJECT, then right click FFD, open Cinema 4D Tags, and Restriction is in there. Then drag your selection tag into the first of the fields in the restriction tag.
