View Full Version : Modeling curled edges on a piece of paper

12 December 2004, 08:11 AM
I know this is probably too simple to be asking here.... but here it goes...

I want to model the corners of a piece of paper that have curled up, inwards towards the center of the square sheet. I tried a few different things but nothing looks right. I made a piece of paper out of two curves lofted together. When I try to make the curled effect on the corners I am having a ton of trouble. It appears to be because the lines of the curves only run perpedicular. I think I need some type of x type isoparms running diagonally but don't know how to set it up.

Any help would be much appreciated.

well, to me everything works fine. as maya converts nurbs to triples anyway while rendering it doesn´t matter how your squares go.
if you´re using nurbs, then maybe you just have too few isoparms. as you work with curves it must be round enough. or because you loftet the surface this happens , because of the history. if you have the loft input node, then you have to delete the history, or you will cause two intersecting functions : a deformation away from base form AND a base form creation.

I'll try reworking it based on your suggestions and see what happens. Thanks for replying.
