Another Basic "how To" - Extrude A Profile

Recommended Posts

Thank you all for your help with my previous "how to sweep" post...works really great now that I'm past the abc's of this :signthankspin:

Another simple one that I can not figure out, actually is very easy to do in a 3D CAD program, but want to know how to do this in C4D. I need to "draw" a plane/profile which includes straight and curved segments (see attachment), then I will want to extrude it to give it some thickness. I feel rather dumb that I can't find it mf_bookread.gif

well If I'm understanding your problem right, I think you want to create the outline with a spline, then you just drag simply under an extrude nurb.

Hope this helped :signthankspin:

Ditto that. Just trace around with a bezier spline. Here's it done for you. Our "Internediate modelling tutorial shows how to trace objects with splines.

3DKiwi...what's the best way on a PC to watch your .swf tutorials? I would REALLY like to be able to pause the video while I'm following the steps in C4D.

Masterpieces, for sure :signthankspin: Well....although at my age (almost 60!) I SHOULD be creating masterpieces, I would be content to create something very beautiful, if not actually a masterpiece...I still have VRayforC4D to learn after I've learned to model in C4D, but I'm content to learn a little each day.

you can watch the tutotials using your browser

(dont open the swf file you need to open the html file)

Yup open the html file not the swf file.

I think doing 3D when I'm in my sixties and older will be a great way to fill in my retirement. There's a number of our members here who I know are a little older doing some very good stuff and have only taken up 3D in the last few years.

Yes, I was opening the swf file with my browser, the html file works just way I need.

I'm thinking that way too...doing 3D arch/viz after I "retire" as a full time architect. As long as I don't go blind or get crippled with some form of arthritis, might be able to do it for some time wink.gif

Maybe I should post (a somewhat late) intro separately.
