I’m just starting out with Blender, and I’ve done a few tutorials… Now I’m trying to model objects myself but it is proving very hard indeed!
My first project is modelling an iPod (4th gen), as I have one so its easy to get a perpsective on it and look at it from the right angles.
For those that don’t know, the iPod is a flat long block (about twice as long as wide) and is bevelled all the way round. I tried off at first with a block and scaling it to the right size and then beveling, which gave the right shape for the block, but made it almost impossible to remove parts to creat the headphone connector and dock connector.
My second attempt involved extruding a block to the right dimensions… But when I try to bevel it, each individual extrusion is bevelled rather than the whole block.
How would i bevel an object made like this?
Also, while is is easy to add buttons that protrude from a surface, how would I create a recess in the side of a block?
Thanks for your time,
