Based on some online images for reference, I’m still figuring out what I want to do with this set up, but here’s where it’s going at the moment.
I made some capsules, but I now realize I will be better off using physics to get the random placement of pills, just not getting it with manual placement.
Before I post anything in the finished section I just wanted to feature this shape that was made using the Bevel after Boolean addon, described in other thread.
All other pills are just subdivision modeling. I’m using physics now for the placement and things look much better with it.
