Regular radiate 3D ornaments

Regular radiate 3D ornaments

On this page you can download two 3D models called ‘Regular Radiate 3D Ornaments’. These are 2 simple 3D ornaments that were created on the basis of the same 2D pattern, and the difference between them lies in the shape of the 3D surface, i.e., the cross sections of the pointed parts - arms. If you take a look at the picture, the ornaments consist of a sphere in the middle with 8 radiating  3D surfaces.

Drawing ornaments like this is easy: 
1) Draw half of the sphere in the middle;
2) Draw half of the arm contour;
3) Put a few curves that should represent the cross sections of the arm;
4) Form half of the 3D arm surface using Sweep command and create a full arm using Mirror command;
5) Use Pattern (or Array in some 3D CAD software) command to rotate the arm as many times as desired;
6) Trim the arms and sphere and delete unnecessary surpluses obtained after trimming.


On the ‘Alternate radiate 3D ornaments’ page you can find two similar 3D ornaments.
