This is hardly worthy of a Gallery post, but I thought I'd share my [learning/practice] efforts on Jeff's
It wasn't easy for me figuring out how to use the Bend tool for this.
kettleball kettlebell base (round part) is 5" diameter.
I used a 3D Flexible Text, height= ½";
Inserted a big Sphere, encompassing that;
3D Intersected the Sphere & Text, creating an ACIS Solid;
Used the Bend Tool to bend that with a radius of 2.25", in one direction;
Then used the Bend tool to bend that in the other direction, again at 2.25" radius;
Did some Reference Point moving and moving of the text Object;
Applied Materials-- a Steel material on the round part, and a green plastic material on the text Objects;
Enabled "Transfer Material..." in Preferences;
Subtracted the text Object from the round part;
The handle is a sweep, 3D Added;
Blended at the intersection of the handle and the round part.
Anyway... it was something to do. And learn/practice.
I could have took it further. But as always, I struggle with the why. Early tomorrow comes another glamorous day in the world of pool construction...
