Money Box

Recommended Posts

  • Topic Author
  • Hi all

    i have to make a money box or large cylindrical object, out of coins....

    anyone have any ideas on the best way to set it up.....

    im sure mograph will be the best way, im not too hot on mograph and havnt really used it yet but ive just managed to do a rough of it and im sure it will work..

    only problem is the amount of geometrey its going to make,

    ive basically extrued a circle spline made an array of that the used a cloner object in mograph so i can a add a it of rotation etc so it looks like stacked coins and not completley uniform...

    am i better off starting with a cylinder for the coins???

    the quality has to spot on and i need to put the detail of the grooves on the seide of the coins too!

    the cylinder in the images is the kind of height it will be...

    next thing is a i need to make certain rows of the coins wider to add a bit of shape to it....

    any ideas??????? confused????

    thankyou!

    The mograph cloner has an object mode, and that takes care of fitting the coins to teh actual box, i don't know muck about this either the be honest

    you can use the method that rareseu said

    and change mode to "polygon center"

    but you need enough poly's on the object that is making the shape
