Heart Key


Today I started working on a render of the necklace I just bought for my girlfriend’s birthday and I have a few questions too if anyone could help :slight_smile:

I’ts not done yet… that scene is just to put it in till I’ve got the whole necklace done… but I was wondering if anyone knew of a good way to make a chain? the chain on this necklace is a really small one (see picture below)

So if you guys could help or tell me what you think that’d be great :smiley:



Here is an example. The chain is an array modifier, increase the count to get more length, the rotation and offset of each link is controlled by an empty, and the array object also is following a curve that you can direct it with. I also found a tutorial at blendercookie that explains all of this. http://www.blendercookie.com/2010/04/21/modeling-an-easy-chain/

Hey thanks! I’ll try and add that to it tomorrow :smiley:

2.5 has an addon that makes chains for you.
