Hi everyone. New to the boards and a trying my hand at using Blender to design some items for 3D printing and am still pretty green around the ears.
I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction in order to achieve an effect I want. I have a feeling it is going to be far more complicated than I am hoping though
So below is my ham-fisted attempt at what I wanted want to create a curved indent that goes along a curved surface and multiple changes of axis orientation. What I attempted was to create a bunch of loop cuts to divide the surface into smaller chunks and I then selected the ones that formed the rough path I wanted. This was after creating the 3D structure.
As you can see, the results are far from what I wanted, but close enough to give people the idea
My next idea is to create a curve on a plane mesh, then extrude the plane to create the final structure, but I’m not sure that’s going to work, or how to go about it.
Would be greatful for any advice on this one.
