3 Point Tent

8 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

 

I am trying to build a tent like the attached image. I am just getting my head around the 3D Revolve with rail, and have created an octagon shaped tent structure which is fine but I need to model this 3 point tent structure.

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks

Based on my experience in designing similar large real tents, I somehow doubt that subdivision is the way to go. It's simply doesn't give the required shape control, and the movie model doesn't look like a real tent. I think it needs ordinary NURBS modeling where you loft curves.
