Protein bars modeling

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'd like to model these protein bars attached below. Would you be able to give me some tips or recommend a website to download 3D scan models? Thanks,

It seems unlikely that anyone will have already scanned this specific bar and made that model available for download, but I can certainly tell you how to make it from scratch in a way that would actually end up superior to even a scanned model...


Never has the phrase 'model things in the same parts as they exist in the real world' been so applicable !


If you break this bar down to its individual components, and model / texture those with enough care you can break this down into easy manageable chunks. Unfortunately I can't see what the sides are doing, so you'd have to show me. But the top seems to be 4 different kinds of nut and a chocolate drizzle on top of whatever the base is...


So I'd start with those. Use simple primtives and deformers to make a few different models of each type of nut. Displacers most useful here I imagine.

Big ones you can manually place, but for the smaller sprinkler type nuts you can clone onto the surface and randomise parametrically.


The chocolate drizzle I would do with either spline dynamics or the volume builder.
