Getting 1 tspline to look like 2 objects

Getting 1 tspline to look like 2 objects

Postby lax26 » Tue May 24, 2016 1:37 pm

I have a spot where 2 organic shapes come into one and I tried to get it as 1 Tspline, but to no luck. I have attached a copy of the area with a layer with the 1 Tspline and then a layer where I split the Tspline into 2 Tspline surfaces to get the desired shape.

Is it possible to get the same or similar look using 1 Tspline? Is it worth the trouble?

Thanks for any input.

Hi Daniel.
What do you mean with "no luck"?
I think you did it just right. The topology is correct and is how I would do it. You just need to tweak the control points to get a better match...

If you want the transition a bit tighter, you can tsSubdivide both before merging all together.

Make sense?

I added a crease in the area where the 2 splines would meet and then spent a while adjust the points trying to get something that looks good and it would take me hours to get it looking the 2 objects coming in together. So I guess I answered my own question, making 2 tsplines and just boolean them together is much easier than the advantages of having 1 tspline.

Thanks for looking at it anyway Juan.

Yes, Boolean those together is easier (one button click)...
At the end it depends on how do you want the transition. If you are looking for a creased intersection Boolean is the way to go.
If you are looking for something more smooth, you may need to merge them in T-Splines.
