    modeled in Wings3D, rendered in POV-ray.

    I dimpled my button in, like an arcade machine button, instead of out, and now I think the black segment around the middle should be a bit deeper. I also noticed that little peak thingy on the nearest ball due to smoothing errors, but who's going to say anything about it? No one, that's who. Shut up, leave me alone ;_;

    I made the first one in like 30 sec to start the thread.
    pic related was made in like 3-5, had issues with follow me tool.

    We could have threads like these to teach people how to model.
    people could be nice and write guides after they make The thing and then we could have a rar file and or a site filled with OC tutorials for all kinds of programs to help people get a feel for the tools.
    all we would need would to do would be maya, max, lolblender and sketchup.
    I can try to do sketchup if no one else wants to but I have only been using it for around a week.

    I'd probably be able to help you better if I knew the end result, so my advice may be somewhat anecdotal. I typically tell my students to work from a lower geometry up, refining all the way. That way you can keep an eye on things getting out of the way, and looking uneven. In Lightwave there is a tool called "smooth" (shift-M) which averages out the selected vertices. In maya, you can use paint effects to do something similar.

    Pic related, it's a low poly sphere that's been smoothed, extruded and tweaked. The sphere geometry is still lined up so if...

    Well, here's what it should look like, and only does because I've clayrendered it. Smoothing wise, I'm not sure why it looks off. Here's my wire of the area, anyway. I'll have to try the "using sphere/original as reference" thing, but I'm pretty sure my topo/triangulation is to blame.

    Try adding an edge loop BEFORE the actual ring, see how in the, there is a loop that precedes the extrusion. This helps the software smooth out.

    Also using triangles to go into a quad like that may be causing some of the 'pinching.' Think 'edge FLOW'

    I'm not sure if it was you or another t/3/apot that was modeling the same thing from GITS (sorry I forget their names), and I don't know if they saw my post before the thread disappeared but here it is again, short version:

    In polygonal modeling, if you're trying to maintain surface curvature it really helps to start out with high base detail before cutting/extruding into the curved surface. You're gonna have a very hard time maintaining any sort of precision with topology like that, or even like that >>28486

    For hard-shelled, non-deforming surfaces like that robot (precisely the kind of models where you need crisp detail) there's very little reason to skimp on the amount of geometry you start out with.

    Okay, cool. I'll restart the shell of the tachikoma (dohoho) with a higher base, and make sure to place the surrounding loops in a better place.

    Strangely enough, that reduced the shading issues. Then I accidentally turned Meshsmooth back on at the same time and Max crashed. :(

    My attempt at this.

    Modeled and rendered in Cinema 4D, took way to long coz i'm just learning this package (switching from 3ds Max).

    What realy annoyed me is that I couldn't bevel/chamfer the cut parts. Gave me some nasty edges, must rethink the topology or something :/

    *going to render a wallpaper as well

    Bonus points for manga translucent balls with a miniaturized Pokemon inside.
    >> Anonymous 02/08/10(Mon)09:57 No.29188
    It depends on the top, most go inward though, it doesn't matter really because the ring itself is on connected to the top part of the ball, and while its from the inside, the hinge on the back is connected to the outside of the ring and to the outside of the bottom part so the ball can be opened up to a 90 degree angle without problem.

    When I was a kid I had quite a few of the toys, all of them had an inward ring, I had a simple pop-open one, and one that played music when opened, even had a few with a pop-out pokemon, they were all inwards.

    Like this, no matter how I tweak it, I just can't get the top of this ultra ball to be straight when placed on a sphere.

    holy shit, this was made months ago. good thing I found it before 404
    I gave up on this project because I kept getting artifacts on the buttons, trying to make a pokeball, with black indent and button from one sphere.
    looking at >>28414 I had a real ....durrrp... moment.

    can some of you explain how you're modeling these in detail? Specifically the functional pokeballs. The non-functional sphere-in-a-sphere are pretty intuitive, and they were explained earlier.

    But the real thing I'm wondering about is how to make the black ring that smoothly rounds into a circular shape that becomes the baseplate of the pokeball's button.

    What does the topology of those black rings look like, exactly?

    use reference (I used second Google image result.)
    black "ring" is the same with as the "line"
    The line normally goes into the pokeball if you want to make it the most reconcilable.
    pokeballs are not mirrors, allthough they can look cool that way, they are most likely made out of painted matte metal.
    right now it looks like a 2 tone sphere with a belt, if you are not trying to make it your own vision and have it be true to the games, you should make the line go in, make the line and button larger, change the shader/texture whatever and round the edges of the red and white caps so it looks like a 3 piece assembly.

    >Critique mode: Engaged

    Disappointed. The "belt" that you have around your pokeballs should be set into the ball, not tacked on to the outside

    The black ring is a simple cylinder, it's not a whole sphere, the difference between top and botom is boolean'd and than you go over edges to remove any artifacts, you should try to make every piece a different element, its a lot easier than making the whole thing out of one or two spheres, see:>>29412
    >> Anonymous 02/09/10(Tue)19:14 No.30643

    Boolean always does shit I don't want. I found it was much better to just make a sphere and cut out the ring myself, and then clone it and shrink it and attach and bridge the caps. I did >>29148 >>29139 btw.

    there's nothing inherently wrong with using boolean, the problem is just that its extremely bugged, but if you know how to use it properly, and when to use it, it can be a powerful tool, instead of being a "lolboolean" bitch your entire life, it'd do you some good to learn to not suck at it.

    well that one took me like 5 minutes, and i didn't care to improve at the time, i went to make a better one, and i had done some, and blender crashes, i dont feel like going and remaking what i had remade, so i just gave up and moved on, so it's not the best i can make, i could make worlds better, i just dont really deem it important, right now im working on my texturing, just made a rubik's cube, which was a bit more exercise, but gonna go do some more complex things

    Actually, I have used boolean for some things, when the bugs in it don't mess shit up too bad. I tend to use the most appropriate solution for things though, instead of using a bugged system and then having to correct for it. The way the post was written that I replied to, it sounded to be implying that boolean was the only way to do it. I was just trying to point out that it is not the only solution.

    The one for Max 2009 is cracked and works fine. It's just the 2010 version that's fucked. Random watermarks and renders are artificially lengthened to unusable times.
