Bedoin / Strech tent

Recommended Posts

Good day,


I'm looking for a tutorial to draw a Bedoin / Strech tent?

I've tried both the "reshape" and "create drape surface" options, but I'm not getting it to look like a stretch tent.


Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

If I am picturing what you want, either a Subdivision object or Revolve with Rail

I generally use the interpolated surface for those kinds of “organic” 3D shapes. Sean O’Skea has a great YouTube tutorial for this.

@Martin Vermeulen This is the tutorial you're looking for:




It's part of the 'Freeform Modeling' series. Starts with the chapter titled "Subdivision Tool - Primitive Types and Tent Roofs" and continues with "Subdivision Tool - Tent Roof Continued".


Good Luck and have fun!
