Title: Basic Shape - Flat torus, ring, or doughnut shape
Post by: BeosBoxBoy on September 17, 2007, 03:25:24 pm
No extensive tutorial on this, but there are 32 JPGs in the RAR with screen captures illustrating the easiest way to make a flat torus in MilkShape 3D. A sample flat torus is included in MS3D format, you can use it directly or as a learning tool.

It is assumed you can use MilkShape 3D and understand regrouping and how to select and deselect groups.

The screen captures show what tools were used and the settings used in each tool. Simply copy the settings you see there to make a similar shape.

A degree of self-initiative is required to decide how far from thick you want the flat torus to be, how small you want the inner empty space to be, etc.

Bevelled edges can be achieved by using more stacks and a smaller scaling on the stacks' outer ring of vertices.

I hope this helps make something easier for you.
