Need Help!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have time to whip me up a simple 3d version of this? I've bitten off more than I can chew and have people breathing down my neck!


its a 3/4 in pipe bent into a 36" circle with 12' strands of beads. Any thing that represents that would be great even a 12' solid that fits the visual.Thank you in advance to any kind soul who can help me.

I've done a very similar thing making the strands of beads as an image prop. IMHO, this is mostly then a Photoshop exercise.


It can certainly also be modeled, but the geometry would be considerable

Try this.


Hoop is anExtrude Along Path of a 1.005" diameter (OD of 3/4" pipe) around a 36" circle.


Beads are 0.25" Spheres duplicated along a 12' Path on 4" centers.


Sting for the beads is a 0.125" circle extruded along a 12" line.


Beads and String are combined into a single Symbol that is then duplicated around the hoop 36 times.  Hoop and 36 Strings are then made into a symbol.


All objects are set to Use Class Attributes.


Takes about 3 minutes to render in Fast Renderworks on my 2014 MacBook Pro.

Thank you so very much! it's perfect. Not only does it fit the bill but the explanation makes sense to me. I really appreciate the work and more importantly the lesson.
