|1930s Bedroom Radiator (Cinema 4D R13, 2012)|
Because of the holes in the radiator panels, I had to create multiple lofts and make sure they all fit together (which wasn't hard). What was difficult, was that the loft NURBS were bulging where I didn't want them to, and the final splines of the loft were being curved out to instead of in to.
So after conversing with the nice folks on the C4D Cafe forums, I turned to hyperNURBS for the main radiator panels, which worked far better once I got the hang of using the knife tool appropriately. I duplicated the panel and created a version with feet, then used cloner and an instance object to fill out the rest of the panelst. All of the other parts of the model were created using loft NURBS.
It was a great learning experience. I still have to create proper textures for it (an idea I still find a daunting), but first I'll be modelling the rest of the bedroom.
