Modelling of a "flower" seat

Hi there!

I’ve got this image modelled in other software and began to wonder how would I model this flower-seat shape in SketchUp ?
Any ideas :slight_smile:?

Pictures a little dark to see the details well… but it looks like Fredo6’s Bezierspline plugin would get you the shapes for the top and base. Push pull to desired thickness - height and finish by rounding corners with Fredo’s Round corner plugin.

Should have asked what software you modeled it in , can the model be imported into SketchUp ? If not can you save “plan views” of the base and top in a format that can be imported into SketchUp so you have an image to draw the shapes from ?

Hi tuna1957,

Thank you for your reply!
I only have this image unfortunately as it was modelled in 3dsmax long time ago by someone else.
I don’t need to model it right now but I began to wonder how would I get to a shape like that (pleated circular shape, folded in half).
I made the image little brighter.

I’d have a look at Curviloft by Fredo6.


Hi Box,
That’s super. Thank you!
How did you draw the lines?

With the freehand tool and the arc tool.

Ignore my earlier post… thought you were referring to modeling the table… me bad … went temporarily brain dead… Box is spot on with his advice…

Ha ha. No worries :slight_smile: Thanks for looking at my post :slight_smile:
