Adding detail to a curved span of a building model
on Aug 1, 2011 at 2:21:09 pm

I'm looking to create detail on a long, curved section of an architectural model made from a spline. I need to have several horizontal grooves in the span and maybe 25 evenly-spaced vertical grooves. I tried placing a bump map in the texture but couldn't get the pattern to repeat nearly enough times over the full span. Using the knife tool is hit and miss since I can't get exact spacing of 25 different vertical cuts (actually 50 parallel cuts) since I'd need to extrude each cut out somewhat. There must be a better way.

the Plane option of the knife tool has the Slice option but if your model is curved that may not be of use.

You can definitely repeat a pattern with textures but it may be much easier to do it with the Texture Tag - Tiles options
