"matched photo" curved face

modeling

#1

Can you draw the following image with Matched photo, how can it be drawn?


#2

Not very easily. Match Photo requires lines in the image that lead to two different vanishing points on the horizon. Your cake doesn’t have those.


#3

OK Dave. Thank you for answer


#4

To add, the lines must be orthogonal. Flatiron Building would become badly distorted.

Hello!

You could start with a circle (14 segments), and another circle (6 segments).
Circle with 6 segments extrude it and then make it group.
Use plugin “Loop subdivision smooth” (free plugin).
The resulting shape rotate and copy it 360 /14. Intersect three of them, and keep only one. Clean it and make it component.
Again, this componet rotate&copy.

Mostly, that’s the idea, but I’ve created for you the 3D model for an easier understanding of it.

Depending on the desired end result, the model can be improved.cake-01.skp (738.9 KB)
