Closed 3D book with Invig Pro
on Jul 30, 2008 at 7:47:44 am

Hi All

I am trying to work out how to build a closed hardback book using Invig Pro. The problem is creating an edge profile that has a convex spine and a concave leading edge and also having the hard cover (front and back) extending beyond the dimensions of the pages so that it looks like a hardback rather than just a paperback book.

i am not sure if i should be trying to bolt a few primitives together to get this look or if there is a solution to this using a single custom edge

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dax

I'd build it in pieces.

Hi Dax,

You don't need a custom edge to create a book.

Download the following ai file:
http://www.nyc-visual.com/Book.zip

Open the file in IL to see how the cover as well as the rest was created. (Layer 1 & 2)


Salut.
Serge
