Henry, I suspected something like that might be the answer. As I am not very familiar with wrapping techniques, I appreciate the link to the tutorial, thanks. I will have a look over that more when I get some more time. By the way, I have just been reading your book on Photorealism in TurboCAD, trying to work on the rendering for my logo design that I posted in the gallery. That is awesome, just what I need to get started with rendering. That must have been a lot of work. Again, thank you for all your hard work.
WD, That is great, you make it look so easy. I actually used that technique to make the notches in that collar, as well as the notches in the handles. In fact when I read that post the first time, I was intrigued, and drew the compass also just to try the technique. Of course it didn't look nearly as good as yours.
A couple of questions though, WD. Are the markings you did, 2D with the nonrenderable objects turned on? The other question is how did you get it to follow the curve on the face of the bevel? That is the thing that got me stumped in the first place.
P.S. If you're up for a little more of a challenge, if you look closely at the photo you'll see that the markings also continue on the top of the collar which happens to be flat. For my purposes, I don't need to be that picky though. Just though it would be interesting to see how that might be done also.
This was a fun little project. Much easier when you have the object in front of you to take measurements from.
