Join Veejay Gahir for an in-depth discussion in this video Top-slab start, part of Surfacing an F1 Wheel In Alias.
- Let's take a look at some…of the geometry I've created for this handle footprint.…So the first you'll notice in this particular model…is I've got a separate layer for mesh handle.…So it basically eliminates any extra mesh…that we don't need to focus on right now.…And the handle footprint itself,…now when I created this…the approach that I use is that I look for…very simple shapes initially.…So I looked at this curve on the outside.…And I just put that in using a degree three bezier.…And then from this curve here…I just offset that curve,…like this to the inside.…
So I'm trying to keep a relationship,…relationship between entities is very important…to try to get some consistent flow…of control points and holes.…So I would use the offset…to create the inside edge down here.…Now we're only going to using this portion of it.…But nevertheless it still has some relationship…to the outside curve.…So again, try to use simple entities…and try to use an offset…or build some sort of proportional relationship…in your related curves.…
