Need some help with complex curves...


Recommended Posts


I have been using VW for a few years now but I am at the point where I am wanting to model more complex shapes. I have played around with 3d power pack contours, nurbs etc.. but I havent found a formula for creating shapes such as this:


Using this building as an example could someone loosely describe how I would model a shape similar to the towers?

Thanks for your help :]

Hi Heppy,

Here's a rough primer on the shapes you mentioned. It's not that difficult, but it take a little time, same as any other NURBS modeler.

Follow the sequence of Saved Views to see what was done.

Take a look a Silo and modo (or 3DMax, if it's affordable) to investigate what you can do with forms like this in subD.
