The Pipe 1

The pipe project was the first of the 3d modeling. I started off with  the pipe frame and used commands  loft and rebuild to set up the pipe to manipulate it into shape whatever shape i pleased. 

By turning points on (F10) I used the commands scale 1d and scale 2d to warp the pipe into various shapes.

 Once i was happy with my shape i ran a script over and entered the number of ribs i wanted it to have. (After the exhibition  I think the more ribs it has the more appealing the finished pipe looks!) 






























I drew a 600 x 900 rectangle and laid all my pipe pieces out onto it. This needs to be opened in Illustrator to prepare to cut in the laser cutter.
