Pipe Wrench

Post by rangerrick » Mon Mar 11, 2019 3:35 pm

A lot of my renderings have a connection to a memory or are from a period in my life.
I have held one of these pipewrenches and had threaded tens of thousands of fittings
in a former life. I used Thom Thom's Sub-D plugin to model the aluminum main body of
the pipewrench, pleased with the result.

:clap: I'm fascinated with the quad modeling of the pipes - care to share workflow?

Thanks guys. Fletch, the elbows are just a SketchUp extrusion of a circle along a path with the Follow Me tool.
