3D Modeling Tutorial: Handheld Fan

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

In this article, the best CPU & GPU could rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, will share with you a 3D modeling tutorial about how to make a handheld fan.

Hi, I am Resh, a 3d artist, before making the handheld fan model, we need to observe its structure and composition. The overall shape of the small fan is relatively simple, the lines are relatively smooth, and the modeling is not difficult. All the steps are simple. Tool of.

Because there are no three views with a suitable angle, we can use the Snipaste screenshot tool to put the reference image in the production software, adjust the size and place it in a suitable position.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

First, start modeling from the head of the small fan, locate the centre point to the coordinate origin and draw a circle, (note that it is best to hold down the shift key when drawing a circle to avoid the drawn entity seam line being chaotic, which will affect the modeling and aesthetics), extrude the entity along both sides, and adjust the uniaxial scaling to the appropriate width.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Use the shell command to shell the cylinder, and copy a circle of edge lines to offset the curve inward.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Use the offset curve to extrude the entity, adjust the position, and use it to perform Boolean difference for the thin shell.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Use the curve function to capture the top and side points to draw a curve, and to adjust the corner radian of the curve.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Rotary forming and offset by a thickness (the thickness of the offset is the thickness of the inner ring of the cylindrical shell)

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Next, to do the part of the grille, first draw a rectangle with the centre point. In order to achieve up and down symmetry, first, array 7 equal parts upward, and then mirror the upper 6 parts of the X-axis to arrange the shape.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Use these rectangles to extrude the solid and perform Boolean subtraction to get the shape shown in the figure below.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

In order to avoid the edge of the model after cutting and increase the difficulty and workload of chamfering, you can first chamfer the inner and outer edges of the back, and then make a backup copy (which will be used later), and then take it out. The rectangle of the previous array, as before, adjusts the position for the Boolean difference set.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Take out the backup, draw a rounded rectangle and extrude the entity for Boolean segmentation, delete the redundant part, the obtained shape is as shown below, adjust the position and perform a Boolean union with the grille, so that our entire grille has a boolean union. The styling is done.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Next, we will make the fan blade inside, first, locate the centre point to the origin to draw a circle and extrude a small cylinder on both sides, then copy a circle of edge lines, offset the curve inward, (for the convenience of observation and operation, you can let it is displayed separately).

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Extract the surface and split it with the offset curve, then blend the surfaces.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Draw a rectangle, then close the curve raw surface, rebuild the surface and adjust the shape.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Then offset a suitable thickness, round the top two sharp corners, and then adjust the position as shown in the figure below.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Then capture the centre point of the cylinder to make 7 copies of the circular array, and then the Boolean union is completed, and the fan blade is completed; then the mesh cover of the Boolean union is also unioned.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Next, start to model the fan handle below, and draw an ellipse in the top view to capture the origin, still extruding the entity, the size and length can be slowly adjusted according to the reference image, and then use the grille to perform Boolean difference set on it (delete Enter the object and select No), and then delete the redundant part.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Draw a straight line and pull out a surface, adjust the height according to the reference picture, and cut out the parting line by Boolean division of the fan handle.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Next, make the buckle at the connection of the fan handle, first hide the cylinder below, and draw an ellipse and two rectangles at the bottom of the upper section (the rectangle can be drawn on one side to maintain symmetry and then mirrored on the Y-axis), Then stretch out the corresponding length according to the reference drawing.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Take out the cylinder that was hidden, perform a Boolean difference set on it with the three parts just extruded (delete the input object and select No), get the groove as shown in the figure below, and then hide other things.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Switch to the front view and draw such a curve, then pull out a surface and mirror it, and then do a Boolean difference.

Then bevel this edge to get this shape.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Then take out the two small cubes that were just hidden, select these two faces on both sides, and pull them out a little to satisfy the shape. Because it is a buckle, it can only be fastened when it protrudes a little.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

The three components Ctrl+shift single-select the top and stretch the handle of the upper half to Boolean division.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Draw a right-angled line, pay attention to the height of the line, to avoid that the cut shape will pass through the mould, then pull out a face and mirror it, and then display the two cuboid parts separately, you can slightly adjust the faces on the left and right sides, to make it cut out to look more beautiful and more in line with the shape of the reference image; then perform a Boolean difference set.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Next, go to the modeling of the shape at the bottom of the fan handle, copy a circle of edge lines to offset inward and extrude the entity, and then perform a Boolean difference set on the upper part for the lower part

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Copy a circle of edge lines to offset the curve inward, then extract the surface, divide the surface with the offset line and delete the excess, then move it up a little to form a height difference, then loft the raw surface, and then combine. Take a look at the surface.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

Then take out the grille and the upper part of the handle for Boolean union, then we make a parting line, draw a straight line from the middle of the side, and stretch a small thickness on both sides for the Boolean difference.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

So far, the whole product is basically finished. Let's do some details on the chamfer and some button logos. Except for the part of the grille, the chamfer can be poured out without any pressure using the rounding command.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

The position of the button can be extruded into a body by drawing lines and chamfered after Boolean division. There is also a Type-c interface, which is also drawn and then divided by Boolean and then chamfered.

3D Modeling Tutorial Handheld Fan

In the LOGO part, you can use one-click LOGO text, or use the text tool and then Boolean segmentation, and then chamfer.

A Guide to the Career Growth of VFX Compositors (1)
As the leading cloud rendering services provider in the CG industry, Fox Renderfarm has an outstanding team with over 20 years’ experience in the CG industry. Team members are from Disney, Lucasfilm, Dreamworks, Sony, etc. With professional services and industry-leading innovations, they serve leading VFX companies and animation studios from over 50 countries and regions, including two Oscar winners.In this artichle, we will share a guide to the career growth of VFX Compositors from Zhiyong Zhang, Compositing Technical Director in Base FX(Base Media is the leading visual effects and animation studio in Asia).!VFX-Compositing Part 1: Introduction What is Compositing?There are many different explanations about compositing on the Internet. Since it's difficult to explain, I would analyze compositing from some shots.Like the scene in "Monster Hunt", the foreground is made with a 3D model, and the background is made with a combination of the original paintings and pictures. That is to do some MP, color adjustments, elements setting and real shot adding. Finally, all the pictures are going to be integrated, which is a compositing process.The professional value of compostingCompositing is the last part of the visual effects in the later period. You need to blend and match three-dimensional things with the real shot through compositing techniques and methods. Through techniques and methods, add some 2D or 2.5D elements to make the picture more interesting. Compositing is making the projects that the entire visual effects team makes. Hence, compositors are responsible for the entire team, striving to adjust the project to the final optimal effect. This is the professional value of compositing. The artistic charm of compostingFor me, every adjustment on color, virtual focus, interactive light and others will make the scene more realistic or better-looking. Every step of the operation will improve the scene, bringing the compositors hope and happiness. It is awesome to do better in the time allowed and finally show something beautiful. This is the artistic charm of composting. Part 2: Six Basic Skills of CompositorsThe first basic skill is erasing. Many scenes have tracking points when shooting on the green screen, or there are some things that can’t be removed from the scene. We need to do erasing, which is very basic but important.The second skill is rotoing and chroma key. The chroma key is to keying the green screen. There is also a key called no green screen keying, which is the rotoing.The third skill is to match colors. Adding an element to the real shot to change the color of the material is actually matching the material, not creation.The fourth skill is to match the virtual focus or depth of field. The material itself will actually have virtual focus, so the compositor needs to also be good at photography, otherwise, it may become a bottleneck for the compositor. The ideas of the director and the main photographer will be presented in the scenes. We use compositing to re-express what they want to express in CG. We are doing matching rather than recreating.The fifth skill is tracking. Most compositors do 2D trackings, such as billboards or on-screen patches. And sometimes they also do 3d tracking.The last one is the matching noise. For some demanding projects, it is necessary to switch between red, green, and blue screen, or even zoom in to the local area for comparison. It also depends on the broadcast platform. Generally, if it is broadcasting on a TV platform, the noise is not easy to see the noise. If in the cinema, as long as the brightness of the cinema is large enough, the noise of some scenes can be easily seen. The noise matching can make the picture more realistic. Part 3: Standards for Cinema-level Film Compositing RequirementsThe standards here are not officially stipulated standards but are just some common standards that I personally summarize based on experience. I divided the cinema standards for film compositing into two types: technical requirements and artistic requirements. Technical RequirementsFirst of all, it depends on whether the color of the original material is changed. If you are not careful or have moved other parts of the screen including the color of the material for other reasons, it may cause customer dissatisfaction.Secondly, whether the maximum and minimum values of the screen are consistent with the material or not. Of course, the maximum and minimum values are not for a certain scene, but for all the materials of a project. Thirdly, whether the metadata is correct or not. If the editing requires metadata to be accurately restored, it needs to be correctly restored to the material. Generally, at the beginning of the project, it needs to agree with the previous DI or editing on how to set back.Fourthly, whether the shifting is stuck will also be a technical requirement. The shifting should be discussed with the editor. If the editing does not require any shifting, even if it seems to be stuck, it may be a fast switch of the front and rear scenes. This is one kind of editing methods. if you do something to make it smoother, re-reverting to the clip may cause problems.The last is whether there is any obvious flaw in the picture. The so-called flaw is whether there is a black border on the edge of the picture and whether the edge of the real shot is stretched. Artistic RequirementsThe artistic requirements will be significantly different from the previous technical requirements. We will check whether the details of the keying edges are enough to maintain the authenticity of the picture. In the normal budget, the details of the edges can be kept authentic. If the edges look fake, it may make the whole picture fall short.Whether the bright and dark parts of the screen is matching with the material within the acceptable range? The dark and bright parts here refer more to brightening everything in the viewing facility, to see if the added thing is the same color as the real shot and whether the degree of the color cast is the same. Without considering the budget, as a compositor, the only requirement is to do something better, so try to match it.Then, whether the compositing elements, the virtual focus of the background and the depth of field match the real shot. The depth of field of the real shot sometimes will be very shallow, sometimes it will be very deep. Generally, there will be a range, this range is taken by the lens and the camera. We can add an element in it, and change the depth accordingly.In addition, we must also consider whether the simulation of the lens effect meets the real shooting standard. With a normal lens, the virtual focus is 1:1, and with an anamorphic lens, the virtual focus is vertical, similar to 2:1 circular virtual focus. While doing compositing, it needs to pay special attention to matching.The next thing to consider is whether the addition of smoke, flame and other atmospheres is truly fused. The light and shadow, the virtual focus and the sharpness are matched with the whole, and the things that really melt into it are realistic.The last thing is to consider the interactive effects, the corresponding interaction between the real shot material and the CG elements. When we do the compositing, in addition to shadows, there are some light interactions, we should consider whether to add them.In the process of compositing, we need to give ourselves the opportunity to exercise and do more fine, otherwise, we can't make progress. In fact, the audience is very smart now, watching a lot of blockbuster movies. Therefore, we should try our best to be realistic in the time cost of cinema-level movies. If the audience feels satisfied in the cinema, it will be successful.Follow the leading cloud render farm, Fox Renderfarm, for the next part: A Guide to the Career Growth of VFX Compositors (2)").

3ds Max Tutorials: The Production and Sharing of "Sci-Fi Guns" (3)
The best render farm, Fox Renderfarm still shares with you the production of the work "Sci-Fi Guns" which made with software 3ds Max and Substance Painter 2019 from 3d artist Zikai Wu. And this is part three of the sharing.- 3ds Max Tutorials: The Production and Sharing of "Sci-Fi Guns" (1)")- 3ds Max Tutorials: The Production and Sharing of "Sci-Fi Guns" (2)") TexturingNext, start the texture production. First, divide the whole into several large layers, and then create a selection area based on the id map made before. First, create a layer group and add a color selection mask. Then make the texture of each part in each layer group.When making textures, my production process is to pave the color first, and then add details. First, give a basic color, then copy the layer to make the darker part, add Dirt generator to this layer, if the effect does not meet your requirements, you can modify the generator parameters and add a brush tool to draw the part you want The effect can be. I usually add the Edge generator to the bright edges to increase the volume and make the overall effect clear. For example, small white particles on part of the surface: first create a new filling layer, add a black mask to the layer, add a filling layer to the mask, then find the picture you want in the grayscale material library and drop it on top, modify the parameters to Control the particle effect.!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 6After the texture is finished, I will create a new layer on the top and add sharpening to enhance the clarity of the details.For the gun, I used some glow textures and halo effects. These halos used some basic layers, and then used a mask to draw the shape, leaving only the Emiss self-illumination, and then changed it to blue. Then duplicate this layer, and add a Blur filter on the mask, modify the blur intensity to achieve the halo effect.!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 13Other parts of the texture also use this method, and the texture is exported after production. When exporting textures, you need to pay attention to texture size, texture location, channel, and format. RenderingAfter the texture is produced and exported, it enters the rendering stage. We also need to export the environment map used in Substance Painter to MarmosetToolbag 3 for use.Import the low polygon and add the MarmosetToolbag 3 shader, paste the exported texture according to the channel, pay attention to the name of each channel. You need to flip the Y-axis on the normal channel, just click it. Because this also has an emissive map, you need to open the emissive channel in MarmosetToolbag 3.After the texture is the lighting, the lighting method: one main light source (warmer), one or two auxiliary lights. (Colder). The main light source is located 45 degrees above the front, and the auxiliary light is located on the side and back, which is mainly used to illuminate the dark parts and express silhouette contours.!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 4After all the settings are adjusted, you can render. Below is the final rendering effect:!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 3The above is the whole process of making this gun. We hope this tutorial can be of some help to you.

The best render farm, Fox Renderfarm shares with you the production of a work "Sci-Fi Guns" which made with software 3ds Max and Substance Painter 2019 from 3d artist Zikai Wu. And this is part two of the sharing.- 3ds Max Tutorials: The Production and Sharing of "Sci-Fi Guns" (1)") Unwrapping UVAfter the low-variability model is made, it is the job of splitting the UV. Before splitting the UV, you need to distinguish the smooth group first. My distinguishing standard is: the angle greater than 90 degrees is not separated, and the uniform smooth group is less than or equal to 90 degrees. Separate. Then there will be some large black parts after separation, which can be separated separately. When splitting the UV, first use the built-in tools to tile according to the smooth group, and then manually adjust some more complicated structures. When placing the UV in a straight line, try to keep it as straight as possible to facilitate the overall placement. The second is the allocation of UV space. The more important components will occupy a larger space, and the space utilization rate of UV should be maximized. Because most of this gun is symmetrical, half of the UV overlaps. Normal mapHere is the use of Substance Painter for baking. Before baking the Normal map, the high polygons and low polygons must be matched first. The edges of the model must be matched. The second is model naming, for example, the low polygon qiang01_low, the high polygon is qiang01_high. The low polygon export format is fixed.What is worth noting here is the export of high polygons. If you use one time to export all models, it will take a long time. And there may be some small problems when baking the Normal map, and then you have to go back to 3DSMAX to modify and re-export the entire model, which will take a lot of time. After a test, I will split the model into several parts and export them separately for easy modification.!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 18!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 7When you are ready for these tasks, start to use Substance Painter to bake textures, and use the PBR production process, import high polygons, set the parameters, select the matching method as naming, and bake a vertical normal first. The effect of the vertical normal baking is that the internal structure is clear, the small details such as screws are not offset, but there will be some defects in the edge, so it is necessary to bake an average normal to combine the two normals to retain their respective advantages, namely Keep the edges of the average normal inside the vertical normal.!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 12Then you need to re-import this normal into Substance Painter for use, and you need to check again for any problems for the first time.!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 11For small flaws like this kind of edge, you need to enter Substance Painter again to modify the normal edge.!3ds Max Tutorial The Production and Sharing of Sci-Fi Guns 10After the normal problem is solved, we will bake the id map. To bake the id map, you need to select this option, based on the texture color. The main reason is that I used high polygon layers to give textures of different colors in 3DSmax. Then you can bake other remaining textures after you get the normals and id.Follow the leading cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, for the next part: 3ds Max Tutorials: The Production and Sharing of "Sci-Fi Guns" (3)").
