Hey /3/Ive been studying modeling and Im stuck with this topology.Its a cross between a cube and a cylinder, but the problem lies where they encounter, I cant manage to make a clean quad topology.I already applied a quad chamfer on their edges but I dont really know how to go on. As you can see there are too many tension points where the vertex joins, any solution or tips?Thanks in advance
lol you just need to delete the line in the middle of the tip and its all quads
>>529492I tried that already but it ends up horrible when applying turbosmoothI need to move that tension point anywhere else, to the sides maybe
>>529494lol just push that vertex up so it doesnt pinch down
So keep in mind I did this quick. What you would have to do is spend some time and relax these vertices so that mesh smooths better.You can see how it's a bit lumpy on the sides, you can actually fix that pretty easily by moving some verts around.
>>529503I guess it didn't want to include my pic
>>529504thank you for taking the time!I did this one and kinda worked, my tension points went to both sides (red boxes) and now I have a smoother corner.I used the normal chamfer (2 sides) instead of quad chamfer. I really need to learn when to use one or the other.Im going to try your solution
>>529505ur'e welcum ;^)))
>>529505Hey, actually wanted to try one more thing.The solution I posted before was using 32 sides, after thinking about it, I changed it to 24 sides and came up with this.I think it smooths a lot better, and the topo is cleaner as well.Hope it helps.
>>529510Are you always using quad chamfer for the edges? Or just the normal tri one with 2 sides?I always have trouble on which one to use.That solution looks nice, saving image for later try
>>529513I actually do it manually with cut. And then eyeball it even by moving verts with edges on (meaning the verts follow the edges, it's an option in edit poly)
>>529505Not a mistery why you have tension, you have a triangle neighbouring an ngonSort this out and you should be gone.Also use symmetry so you only have to fix it once
>>529524Me again, just remembered I have saved an example just like yours in pinterest, check it out
