Spline Sketching

Recommended Posts

I have started a huge project of modeling the kidney. My first piece of it is a coil of capillaries called the glomerulus. And around this are wrapped cells with projections which overlap (called Podocytes). The problem came with getting these projections to wrap around the capillaries. But I discovered a new technique where I learned to paint cells around the capillaries using Spline Sketch in Polygon Snapping mode combined with Metaballs. It was so easy!

And here is my result:
