Have: picture of this tumbler (or similar)

How can I achieve this using Blender?

the best way is to take a picture of it in a hallway, or anywhere that has nice traceable perspective lines and then the the BLAM add-on to set your camera's perspective and what not (unless you're already 100% sure what your camera's focal length is.
then you model the glass, go to orthographic side view, and project uvs from view.

Hey guys, why is it that if I remove a edge and then I connect two vertices with the F key, my Knife can't snap on that new edge compared to before?

If you are creating an edge between two vertices on a face you should be using j, not f. F will create an edge separate from the face, j splits the face.

If you're extruding a face, you can try switching from global orientation (or whatever) to normal orientation, via the controls at the bottom of the 3D viewport.
>>
>>616278

I'm just trying to extrude the verts.
>>
>>616280
You can only extrude vertices along an axis specified in the toolbar. For example if you hit e to extrude then x to lock to the x axis (don't know if this is local or global), then x again while in normal transformation mode, you will extrude outward on the x normal. The modes available are view, local, global, gimbal and normal.

You can also extrude on two axis by holding shift and pressing the key of the axis you don't want to use. For example e to extrude then shift+z, will lock extrusion to the x and y axis.

I have a question. If this is going to be a walking robot, unless if the leg frame is meant to bend intentionally (like a prosthetic running leg), how is it supposed to walk?

Fair point. my initial intention was to test the hardops addon (explains the easy bevel workflow) by doing a cross of a prosthetic running leg and a kagaroo...

As you can see in my helpless block out attempt just now, the assets I had in mind dont realy come together all that well. My fault for not thinking it through with a proper concept.

I am mainly a sculptor and 2D concept guy. So this was until now just a entry-project to more complex hard surface stuff. But I am actually eager to fix the design issues now that I see this monstrosity.
>>
>>616405
>>616406
This wasn't a criticism, I just genuinely wanted to know. Usually I waste tons of time trying to clean the topology so that the Bevel modifier will work and not result in weird backwards normals or jagged edges.
>>
>>616407
Ah dont worry, I did not read that with a negative tone. My answer was mostly to the guy above you.

But yeah, hard ops is really fun and gets things done super quick. Just the topology is sometimes all over the place and not really sculpt/UV friendly at all, which is kind of an issue. So lots of cleanup is indeed needed, which balances out the time while modeling

Hi.

I want to make custom body panels for my motorbike. I'm not very crafty, so I'm guessing automating most of the process would work best for me. I've used blender in the past to make shitty low-poly models, so I'm a bit familiar with it, although I don't know if the workflow is any different for real life applications.

I think the process would be:
1) get blueprints, sketchup models, and measures from my own vehicle
2) get that into blender and model the new pieces over that
3) export those pieces in... .stl?
4) bring the .stl to a machine shop so they can machine a negative mold out of it, in foam or something like that
5) use the mold to make the piece myself in composite, or bring it to a body shop so they can do it (probably for the best)

I'm concerned about points 2, 3 and 4. Can I just make the model, export as .stl and be done with it? Or do I need to somehow prepare it for machining shops?

You only need the first one for 3D sculpting.

>I dont like blenders interface
Yeah folks at work say that too. I have the luxury to have access to maya and cinema at work and have a fair understanding of how max works. In my opinion (modeling related), the workflow in blender is unmatched. I am beginng to realise that myself now.

I was not aware of the mentioned tutorial. I already knew how to navigate in blender as it was my gateway drug to the industry a decade ago before cycles was a thing.

I mainly used the addon hardops, must own imo. Symmetry is fine. I build all body parts on a sperate layer with great used of the mirror modifer. In the end I group for example all objects to form a "leg" instance, which in turn I load in on the main layer. This is why you see those crosses >>616385 here on the right. You cannot physically move individual parts here as the leg behaves as one instace, which in turn I mirrored again after slightly altering the rotation.

On some parts I have even multiple mirror and symmetry instances with that trick.

Way to lengthy reply, dont be fooled by it. In reality I am a one year beginner in 3D hard surface.
>>
>>616756
Any chance you could give a rough step-by-step (pictures optional, if you feel like it) with how you use hardops to make your models? I'm on the fence about getting it - it's $15, but a bit hard for me to justify right now unfortunately. Also, is the workflow suitable for not strictly mechanical objects, or is it exclusively for stuff like glorified boxes/machines?

Well, in its core its boolean based. Indeed anything other than boxy stuff is hard to work with as we know it from boolean operations. (For complex stuff I still jump into zbrush real quick.)

However hard ops is a huge QoL improvement. you bevel complete objects with the press of a button and performe complex cut outs and mofiications in edit mode. And then there are those libraries... reason enough to get it imo.

If you are unsure look up the official demo videos.
>>
>>616768
Oh dang, it includes libraries too? And a 5-second google shows I can add my own bits. I'm sold, thanks mate.

How unwrapping-friendly is it? UVs are my least favorite part of modeling, probably because I haven't learned how to do them well yet. Retopo is always a pain and you mentioned its topology isn't the best, do you have to muck about a lot to get a nice UV map or do you have a tool for that too?

Faster question, are all my questions answer-able by watching the demos? Hour-long videos tend not to be the best.
>>
>>616772
you can expect classic boolean like topology.
Huge ngons, overlapping faces as seen in the middle here where it is missing two edge loops.

Its a tool, not a solution after all. But it comes with loads of features. Its boolean operations are not the most important and if you stick to boxes you are fine.

Appareantly the addon provides tools to clean up topology too. I am still learning it with this very project.

Update. Please crit and comment.

Will fix the main body plates on top and make em thinner, prolly 2 layers. Tail needs some work to make it functional at last. Want to add hanging luggage, bags and an saddle in the end.
>>
>>617212
it's neat, but purely from a functional standpoint, it feels a bit like it would tip over and faceplant because of the weight distribution. bulkier legs or tail (or both) would solve that issue i think.

also if you're still thinking about reworking the legs and want references, search for the cassie robot by agility dynamics. some good shots of it here with exposed joints:

excellent points. I noticed the weight issue but overlooked the legs. Will work on them too, thanks!
>>

if you want to fake the legs, just throw joint shaped shrouds over the thing.

Just sculpt the character inside zbrush and retopo inside blender. There is no reason to waste your time box modeling complex organic stuff anymore, unless you're an old fart who hates sculpting because he can't into zbrush.

Unless you manually split the edges it's not going to look the way you want. You should post mesh of the model you want help with, not the one you want completed, and not wireframe unless that's what you need to be fixed (which, in this case, it isn't)

Oh, you're trying to make the supports, that's why it's such a weird shape. I honestly think you've got about double the edge loops you need and are one subdivision level too high - you could probably get a similar shape with much less vertices. With that narrow shape, though, I don't think there's a way to entirely avoid pinching it.

Now that you have the edges selected, hit Ctrl-E and look for Mark Sharp, that should get you closer to what you want.

You can do that easily by using a normal map. If you add extra edges to those you have selected, you can then subdivide the whole thing to smooth it out. Finally, you can create the normal map from the difference between the original mesh and the new subdivided one.

Use edge split modfier or auto smooth edges thingy located under object data. You need those for the viewport shading to look crisp if you smooth hard surface objects.

Play around with the value, you'll quickly get what it does.

Also bevel all edges with a bevel modifier if you go for realism.
>>
>>618913
cont.

This is how it should look.
The third has subdivions on top of the bevel and auto smooth. The bevel itself will prevent the subdiv to completely wreck your edges.

Another alternative, since Edge Split can create problems (especially if you Apply it) is:
Bevel (Weights) and use Ctrl E -> Edge Weight while in Edge Mode, Subdiv 2

An advantage to this method is you can use Geometry -> Pointiness node for edge detection / faux-AO and not get artifacts from the double verts caused by Edge Split. Also I imagine you'll get more reliable results with baking to a low poly (though I've never tried baking with Edge Split, I just don't find myself using it)

Anyone here doing face-weighted normals for hardsurface shit and know how to fix this? Only happens with raytracing engines, i.e. Cycles, and the only reference I can find to this problem is on Stackexchange and was never solved.
>>
>>619056
You simply don't use FWN with ray-tracing engines since its a hack used in realtime graphics.
It produces a mismatch between the actual surface and the normals which can result in strange edges and black borders.
>>
>>619058
I see. Thanks. So with raytracing engines you just do the bevels and don't fuck with the normals, relying on the raytracer to figure it out?
>>

All this time wasted using useless open source software. Sad.
>>
>>619056
Something to do with ray-tracing/ambient occlusion and face-weighted normals not being technically possible so the engines can't calculate the shading properly. Isn't limited to Cycles and you can find the same issue with all non-realtime rendering engines.

If you want the bevelled effect, just subdiv with proper support loops, if you're too lazy to set up your loops, use the bevel modifiers beforehand.
>>

Another question about FWN: if you were making assets that use the technique, like Alien: Isolation did, do you still make a high poly version and then bake down the normals to the low poly, FWN version? If that's the case, what effect does FWN have if it's being overridden by the normal map? Or do you forego a high poly version and normal mapping entirely and just use the generated normals? That seems reasonable and a lot quicker than making a high poly, intricate model, but requires you to rely heavily on decals. Would you ever make a low poly, FWN version of an asset and then bake its normals to an even lower poly, non-FWN version of it?

Quite impressive, I kind of looked down on it a little since it was free, but the quality of some are just great.

Let's say I have a huge and complex mesh with 70 shapekeys. I set 20 of those keys to specific values.
How do I turn these changes into the new basis? I want to integrate these values to be the new basis, without having to manually edit them in edit mode or deleting my existing keys.

I simply can't make them permanent.

The UI in Blender, if you can call it that, can not be made worse.
>>
>>619369
Blender's UI is good.
>>
>>619371

Only blendlets think Blender's UI is good. Everybody else agree to say that Blender's UI is a massive pile of dogshit, just like it's userbase

>>619324

The same thing could have been said from the very first UI. It sucked balls and I'm sure people got pissed when it changed back then. Get along with the times blendie.
>>
>>619324

Maxlets are still intelligent enough to learn a software that will lead them software. Blender will lead you to the streets with a cardboard box as a house and donuts as your sole source of nutriments.

Man I actually dig the new interface. Feels less toyish and chaotic.

>big rectangular buttons for basic actions and a total lack of relevant information like tri count
>feels less toyish
>>
>>619376

Yes, and now it's less intimidating for beginners and people who don't like shortcuts. You still have your shortcuts by the way you wanker.

What you egoistical blendlets don't understand is that people were scared away when they used opened blender because of the clusterfucked interface. No matter what you say, nothing made sense. When people open up a software, they expect to find stuff where they expect it to be. In Modo, Max and Maya, EVERYTHING is in your face. You can still create your own shortcuts, but you also have a non-retarded UI.

Keep crying, it's because of close minded blendlets like you that many people ended up using other software.

>>619379
all you need to know is a few simple, basic shortcuts that mostly make sense like E for Extrude, everything else can be done easily by hitting space and searching for it. The only bad shortcut is CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-C to reposition an object's origin
>>
>>619381

I know almost every god damn blender shortcuts there is. The difference is that I'm not an egoistic fat fuck. The shortcuts are still there. But now we've got a good interface that won't scare newcomers away.
>>

except it doesn't show the good shit, it just has like 6 buttons for vague, rarely used but "basic" actions

There will probably be customization options. Hopefully.

Almost all of them have shortcuts. Only randomize Doesn't.

Rip = V
Poly Build = F
Edge Slide = G,G
Spin = Alt+R
>>
>>619390

Following your logic they can as well just delete the whole UI since you can do everything with shortcuts. Stupid blendlet. Every software has both icons and shortcuts. But you retarded blendlets just want the same old confusing UI that scares beginners awat because it makes you feel superior. Truth to be told, no matter how much shortcuts you know by heart, you'll always be an unemployable blendlet.
>>
>>619390

you really think starters know about these shortcuts? Icons are the way to go when you learn 3d. Then you can bother to learn the shortcuts, when you know what you're actually doing. You're a retard.

Blender UI is shit.
With every other program when I hit a wall I can fuck around with the different tools within a category where I am most likely to find the solution. In Blender's mess, this is impossible. Hotkeys are nice, but unless you use them every day you are bound to forget them very quickly. Hotkeys also change a fucklot between versions, making tons of guides and forum posts obsolete. UI design rule No. 1: "Menus are eternal, hotkeys are for the user's convenience to decide."

I could literally rant for hours about how crap Blender's functionality is. I should have started with a professional program instead of the this murky mess that manages to be worse than GIMP.
Blender scares away new people to the direction of finding a better tool for their 3D needs.
>>
>>619508
Hit the Spacebar and find all you need
>>
>>619513
People most often don't know what they need.
That's why well structured menus and UI are godsend.
>>
>>619292
Edit mode, select all, Ctrl-W, Smooth.

Not as convenient, but hey, it's something.

Or just wait for Blender devs to finalize their Mayaization of Blender.

Do you even retopo?

only organic meshes where edge slide doesn't work too well because it interferes with surface snapping.

Just wondering, how did those guys on youtube even managed to make good eevee renders? I tried it but I can't even make a chair without the whole thing getting buggy, I even had the whole viewport turn into black because of it.
>>
>>619543
Probably made the mesh in in 2.79 and then the material in 2.8. I've done that in the past as a test and it worked fine.

Textools' UV Mesh feature is really nifty. Lets you deform one mesh to the converted UV space (i.e. wrap it around) another. Should make projecting patterns onto odd surfaces a lot easier.

>Just wondering, how did those guys on youtube even managed to make good eevee renders?
They used Maya + V-Ray. Uploading a video about Eevee is the hip thing to do nowadays, but it doesn't mean that they are actually using it.
>>
>>619694
if you slide a vertex along an edge it will ignore snapping to the surface of your sculpt
>>
>>619454
>Edge Slide = G,G
That's move along normal.
Edge Slide is Shift+V.
>>
>>619517
>>619508
Like in Maya, where you have FOUR drop-down menus for basic mesh operations, with no structuring or logic to them what-so-ever?
>>
>>619760
That's Vert Slide, which I didn't know existed until now.

Is it possible to double extrude while going into different directions like pic?
>>
I have more than a thousand small disconnected strands of hair in a single vertex group. I want to weight paint them to a bunch of bones so every individual strand only has a single weight and no gradient. Neighboring strands can have different weights, only individual strands must be consistent.
How would you do that?

There's probably an easier way to do it, but first you need to cut the top poly in two, then usually I would extrude them both, then scale them outwards.
Or just cut it in half and use a mirror modifier.

Something I'm working on, cause we gotta be interesting.

Does anybody here know how to script in Blender?

I'm willing to pay for somebody who can create a script that can paste the pose of a keyframed armature skeleton on the Y-Axis. Exactly like X-Flipped Paste, but on the Y-Axis instead.
