Blender modelling random objects

October 2, 2020

Some people set a goal of one model per day, others set themselves random challenges.  It is easy to lose enthusiasm if not careful.  I just doodle when I see something interesting or when I get inspiration or distracted.  These are some of my random objects / doodles: woolworths_potato_salad_lid.blend   BigW_House_and_Home_24_pcs_cutlery_set_fork.blend   Dell_KB216_keyboard.blend

September 28, 2020

Source Files clean_up_text001.blend clean_up_text002.blend clean_up_text003.blend   You can [SHIFT+A] add Text and add a Solidify modifier to extrude to keep parametric rather than collapsing visual geometry to mesh.  This way you can change the font later if you like.  Will most likely require re-tuning some of the parameters though. Tip: Throw in a Weld modifier […]
