Any tips/plugins to create this driver seat?


#1

Are there any tips or plugins that can help me create this driver seat for my model? Here’s a picture.


#2

Perhaps have a look at this one:

…combined with this:

As an alternate approach, you might search the 3d Warehouse for models that already have a similar seat, then look toward customizing it for your purposes.


#4

Okay.


#5

Kiwi, would those plugins work with what I am trying to create? I am a beginner at the plugin, lol


#6

Yes SubD and Vertex Tools will work fine.

I am using Artisan Tools instead of SubD but pretty much the same.

Depends on how accurate you need the seat and what it’s going to be used for.


#7

Alright man.


#8

Do I need screenshots as I use this tool?


#9

Artisan Tools is best for organic shapes in my opinion. I would go for SubD for your job:)


#10

Awesome! Are you in to give me steps on how to use SubD to do the driver seat?


#11

If you are all fresh - go look here:

Awesome, I see in one of those videos, they’ve used a picture as they were using that tool. I’m going to play around with this.


#13

I just want to add one more tip in case you are unaware. When I import a picture for reference this free plugin is a life saver:

Probably, i’ve only ever used Artisan myself, for something like this seat I would create a proxy like this (but better ha).

Probably better if you can use quads with Fredo’s tools however.


#15

Alright, will try that.
