How would you model this?
show user profile  roccodiablo
Hello everyone

I was just wondering if anyone could give any tips on how you'd go about modelling the blind pull cord on the attached image?

Thanks in advance

i would make a spline, and then with the spacing tool, i would pick a sphere with 32 segments. kind regards,

blimey that was quick!

Ok, I'll have a play. Looks like time to learn some new stuff. The only way I could think of doing it was really inefficient.

Thanks a lot

yeah there's a few people on this forum who appear to have their fingers poised on the reply button. I'd like to do the same but I never have the answers!

cheers for the image. I think as long as there's no major close ups you won't notice that they don't mould into each other.

DLDude, your mum USED to have them? I better tell my friends who own the blind that they're behind the times!
