Modeling Help
show user profile  sheheryar_noor
Hi guys,
I am modeling this tong"
" and that's what i have done"
The gap and the back curve is need to be modified a bit. But what i am confused about is "
" the highlighted area is pulled up? like is it shallow from inside?and yeah i am talking about the 1st two models, leave the third one.
How you guys would start this? I have this reference image only.

It's bent there; just flatter. This is all very easy to work out, just look at the reference. The pic I provided was just showing the workflow.

i think you're wrong here herf- looks like to me that it's a single piece of metal bent at the 'hinge' and contoured towards the part where food is held- flat bottom and curved top- like half of what you made- 4 points instead of 7 on the top bit
if you look at the right hand side you can see the 180' bend
you could be right though- the ref is pretty bad

Of course it's one piece of metal with a 180 bend. But at no point is the surface 100% flat, there's always a contour.

Thanks guys, i think my second model need a bit more bending at right side and pulling up the top vertices then maybe it looks fine :D
