I'm trying to make a leaf-like structure. Imagine a lemon, and peeling away about a 20% segment of the skin in one piece. That's what I'm trying to achieve. But I'm stuck and hoping someone can help
I've made the full shape I want in Wings 3D, from which I want to take my segment. It's a sphere that has been molded slightly. To texture it, it obviously needs to be double sided, and a standard sphere is single sided.
I thought that Shell Extrude
would do the job. So I selected all faces, Shell Extrude | Normal
. I press tab for numerical input and enter 0.02. Now I have a very thin double-sided shape. If I go inside with the camera, it has worked
But I am stuck on the next bit, where I want to keep a segment 6 faces wide, and remove the rest. How on earth do I do this? I've tried cutting and dissolving and all manner of things with no success.
Attached is a package of the object in various formats if anyone can help. The ones ending in _d are the extruded double-sided version
Thanks for any help you can give!
