There's nothing wrong with fucking n-gons in the base mesh if you're going to subdivide. Subidivision turns everything into quads anyway.

That being siad, here's an all quads version.

>>554626

its so much prettier though. its not like its more work to make a nice quad mesh and you will never have issues.
>>
>>554626
so that's how you do it.

was wondering why i couldn't get a sharp edge where the two forms meet.
>>
>>554628
it's prettier because his edge flow is correct.

not because the fucking cap on the the cylinder is all quads.
>>
>>554630

was being sarcastic but sure
>>
>>554626
>Subidivision turns everything into quads anyway.
The issue isn't simply having quads, it's having quads with proper edge flow. You can't be sure how it's going to dissect an ngon, other than it's going to be ugly as well as problematic if you decide to add to the mesh later on, making it a bad practice to adopt. A bad practice with an exceptionally easy fix by the way.

Also, you've posted what might be the only situation in which subdivision doesn't turn everything into quads: triangle fans.

So if you don't want pic related, you'll have to spend one second of your time and use grid fill.
>>
>>554612

Don't listen to this retard. Ngons are perfectly acceptable on flat surfaces and work well in this area. It's a way of saving time and not having to worry about topology when it doesn't really matter at the highpoly stage. The only valid argument this anon has is that ngons do not work well on curved surfaces and animated polys. Other than that an ngon will be fine, and the end result is ultimately what matters. Nothing is wrong with having well craft topology, however in the real world no one really gives a shit about ngons and won't care if your highpoly contains them, as long as they don't hinder the final result. If you take nothing away from this except one tip, utilize ngons on flat surfaces that won't be animated and you'll be fine.

>Also, you've posted what might be the only situation in which subdivision doesn't turn everything into quads: triangle fans.

What are you talking about? My mesh is all quads before and after subdivision.

Also, Catmull Clark subdivision will always result in an all quad mesh. Those triangular artifacts in the subdivided mesh aren't due to the presence of actual triangles, but because some of the resulting quads are stretched to hell and back.

Poly modelling this shit results in a one million poly object.
Surface path model is less alike to the original, but it renders with only 20.000 poly.
I´m not wasting my time optimizing this, but i think the polished final object would have around 40.000 poly or less, with round edges and everything.

cube, inset, extrude, loop cuts horizontally and vertically on the extruded part, select the faces, 'to sphere', subdivide 2-3 times. loop cut to define the edges, use mean crease on the original cube's edges, then touch up the part connecting to the cube using loop cuts and scaling.

to be fair if they kept on attempting to work out solutions to basic modelling problems they'd get quite proficient given a year or so
>>
>>555538
Most of the people posting models in this thread made the shape, but OP is autistically pedantic and thinks people have failed because they haven't obeyed his undefined arbitrary restrictions on topology.
Then again, anybody bothering to take OPs 'test' because they think it's even remotely challenging is probably doomed to fail.
>>
>>555563
I think that's a little unfair, good topology is good practice and a lot of people in the thread clearly hadn't compared their shape to the reference because they were very different looking, which is also an important skill.
>>
>>555563
spergy debates over topology happen in every /3/ thread. just ignore them.

what made this challenge interesting is how a whole bunch of the people DIDN'T get the shape right. the assignment wasn't "connect a circle to a square," but that's how a lot of people interpreted it, and they ended up with a transition that looked very different from OP.

a couple of the ones that were waaay off were probably (hopefully) trolling, but plenty of people were like "heh, simple" and slapped something together and uploaded without looking at the OP's example closely enough to realize that their method did not yield matching results.

Attention to detail matters if you're trying to make shit look realistic, and a bunch of people in this thread blew it.
>>
>>555559
sure, I agree. I don't fault the real beginners here for fucking this up and needing pointers, because it's slightly trickier than it looks.

the ones I'm scoffing at are the smug posters who thought they knew what they we're doing, but got it wrong and posted their results anyway believing they nailed it.
>>
>>555569
yeah this is the main issue
>>
>>555569
For one, I HIGHLY doubt half this thread is serious. See >>555502. Or just being "creatively funny" >>555497.

But you're blatantly wrong about how people took OP's post and just got it wrong. OP WASN'T specific. At all. All he said was, and I quote "make this shape". And down to the fundamentals that a image recreated virtually makes it 2D, nearly all of the models here are correctly done. If the point was "make it 100% accurate to the original" then people did fuck up. But OP never made that clear. Period.

TL;DR: This is just a bait thread so don't be so critical of how people do this task. It's honestly interesting how people go about this and bring out a result, whether how accurate it is.

You should learn how to read. Create /= replicate.
If OP wasn't trying to bait, he'd actually mention from the start "remake this shape the correct way". Which makes it personal gain than, since we don't even know "the correct way" when it could be just his opinion on how to do it projecting as fact.

This is 100% correct. Most people who posted here got the shape wrong. It was literally recreate this shape, and most /3/ users failed.

Hey now,
leave my dickcube alone. He's a shy guy.

No one cared about your rpg challenge because this isn't Reddit, we're not here to make everyone feel good and get better, we just exist.
That, and it's more or less just an extruded and textured cylinder. I'm pretty sure that's what people said as well.

what are you talking about? are you so autistic that you don't consider a goddamn grenade launcher to be "military bullshit"?

maybe you consider an RPG to be a "practical model" but not all of us have lives that revolve around war simulation video games and collecting assault weapons. Your challenge didn't fail because people are lazy, it failed because it's a stupid idea targeting neckbeard weirdos.

The best (Blender) method was posted by >>554608 >>554615 and >>554689 (not sure if all the same person but whatever) using Modifiers

That way if OP, or a client, says "no no you need to increase the bevel on the cube part!" or "I want the union where the cylinder meets the cube to be consummate! CONSUMMATE!" then you can adjust it easily and then revert it when they inevitably say they liked it the first way better

Creating all three things you mentioned take time. A retarded duck, windex bottle, and autismcube take little to no time. I'm not spending my own time creating things I don't give a shit about, especially since I have my own work to do. Threads like this stick out because they're simple, fast, easy. The inverse here is that on Polycount the sense of community is much deeper, and as such the challenges work because of the mentality. Not to mention so many beginning/intermediate artists post there for the sole reason to be critiqued and to get better. Prizes, professional critiques, the enjoyment of a knowledgable community are all things that make the real challenges work on Polycount. You get decent critiscm, memes, Blender shitposting, and the occasional on /3/ - Your challenges does not work here.

This "challenge" has purpose as it's highlighting /3/s incompetence. Aside from the joke and meme cubecylinders, many, many people failed here. What is good here however, is that many beginner-intermediate users have learned more about topology, as witnessed by the corrections being made from various anons. Again, your challenges were asking for something that requires some time to do. /3/ is not really the place for organized scheduled challenges of grenade launchers, chairs, and drills. Like I said I think you're just angry because /3/ rejected your threads and now you see a very successful one here of a simplistic cubecylinder and you're annoyed by the 4chan mentality.

Go to Polycount if it bugs you so much.

i should point out, all 3d takes time. if you don't take time to make good models then this is what you are going to make.
so what you are saying basically is that people aren't willing to put time into 3d which is understandable. not offended by this criticism at all. i pretty much nailed this shape the first time since i practice things that are more complex. if you feel like having a noobtrap challenge that its main purpose is to berate people over dumb shit, be my guest
>>
>>556624
I didn't make this thread, I never make threads on /3/ in the first place. I myself also created this shape without a thought as it's very simplistic. However like I said before, the priorities and decisions of /3/ are not the same as you could find on Polycount, and as such it's understandable /3/ would choose to make meme ducks and boxcylinders over creating niche models that don't goad their interest. I'm glad you haven't taken offense, was just trying to point out why this is happening.

Blender friends, what is this purple line thing? Something new to learn?
>>
>>557327
It's creasing for subdivision. My blender knowledge is rusty since I moved to maya a long time ago, but the way you do it is select verts(?) or edges and hold shift+e and drag. The purple lines store a value between 0 and 1 that tells the first subdiv modifier how much smooth subdivision or hard subdivision there should be for that part of the mesh. It won't give you the same effect as beveling but it can be quite useful for hard surfacing smooth flowing shapes at a low to medium level of detail. Hope that helps.
>>
>>557327
Ctrl E -> 'Edge Bevel Weight'

It's a setting used by the Bevel Modifier

The other one you might see that's green (I think, I don't use the default theme) is Crease which controls how much the Subdivision Surface Modifier works

Very useful for say creating a bevel but with a smoothed transition into another shape

Currently i make the cube, then a 8 sided cylinder.

Something like this OP?
>>
>>558584
You could use the bridge tool, select both edgeloops-shift+right click- bridge

You could also snap the vertices of the cylinder onto the corresponding verts on the cube, hold down v when moving, then merge the verts into one, select both-shift+right click-merge vertices.

Also make sure to always set your segments to 2 when bevelling, this stops tris appearing in the corners and is better practice

How would you make something like this in CAD programs like CATIA/Creo/NX? I see how you could do it with surfaces and "sweep" function, but then you end up with hard edges between the surfaces and idk how to smooth it out because too n00b.
>>
>>559515
see
>>558642

It was made in mastercam with extrude (cube and cylinder) then fillet edge. You could sweep or revolve an outline and boolean add with a cube after if you wanted to do it differently.

Interesting, thanks. I think this boolean add of solids was what I was missing when I tried to do it in Catia, because you can't normally fillet like you did in that program.

Thanks man.
>>
>>559726
No problem, you could also make a cube and extrude boss the cylinder part. An extruded boss portion would be part of the solid so you wouldn't need to boolean. You'd then be able to fillet without issue.

you can do this in a minute. I used a low sided cylinder to start so its blobby, you'd just up the base to get OP's pic.

make a cylinder divisible by 4
extrude a segment out and scale outwards
extrude another segment, this is end of box
select cylinder sides / 4, make planar until box
chamfer the edge loop from cylinder face to box.
done

Mastercam is engineering program that also helps at the same time with making proper toolpaths to you can actually create the thing on CNC machine or even normal lathe. It probably also can easily export everything to technical drawing with all the dimensions and tolerances and shit.

>Mastercam is engineering program that also helps at the same time with making proper toolpaths to you can actually create the thing on CNC machine or even normal lathe
True up to "normal". Mastercam creates toolpaths that are then used to create G-Code that tell a CNC (lathe, mill, combination, etc) machine what to do.

>export to technical drawing with dimensions and tolerances
Hell no. You can dimension a drawing/part in Mastercam but it's not really meant to do that. It's not meant to make a model or technical drawing, but it can be used to do it if you have to. Solidworks, Soldedge, Pro-E are better at making solids or technical drawings and then tolerancing and dimensioning.
