View Full Version : Modeling details
12 December 2004, 03:29 PM
I have problems with the modelling of details. I really don't know, how i should do that. I am modelling a helicopter. The problems start with the hull: I am able to do the rough form. But i have no clue, how i should do the windows and the other details.
Maybe one of you pros can give me a tip?

just make some cuts where you want the window to be, and then extrude and chamfer

Can you give me a hint, what do you mean with chamfer? I use C4D, there is much, but no chamfer (e.g. bevel, extrude).
I did the following: I cut a hole and beveled and extruded the edges and closed the hole at the end. But the mesh suffers...
Maybe somebody can show me, how this can be done in a proper way!? You'll find a obj here: Model (http://www.punkvideos2.com/bilder/hub.rar) I'm really interested in this!!
