I’m new to blender. I think I’m doing pretty well, working my way through a bunch of the tutorials, but I’m sure I’ve missed more than a few things.
For my newest project, I want to make a simple bracelet. I’ve created a pearl. Now, I want to copy that pearl (Okay, it’s just a sphere.) along a circular path to create my bracelet. Or do I? Do I copy or extrude?
I should mention I already have the circular path made, basically. It’s a modified torus I’m planning on using to simulate the thread between the pearls.
I was watching a video tutorial where the person created a chain necklace and they were talking about extruding the original two links of the necklace. I might not be understanding the power of extrude or did I misunderstand? I thought extruding was for pulling out and stretching surfaces and that kind of thing, not entire objects.
So what’s the best way to go about making my bracelet? Is there a tutorial out there? I suspect there is, given all the ones I’ve come across.
If it seems like I’m going about this wrong, please let me know that, too. I’m a total newb at blender techniques and haven’t done any 3D modeling in about 5 years.
Thank you for any help.
