Procedural Pencils (six sided)

This time, I focused on function over composition.

Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out, and might go back and improve some things in the future. I like the system, and the possibilities for quickly creating a pencil to go in any scene.

The process is mainly booleans. Though it gets a little bit slow near the end, it’s not that bad.

One thing I do not like is the eraser clip. If I’d had more time, I may have made a better shader for it, and worked on adding those little grommet things. I also think the sharpened end is a little bit too regular, and needs some noise.

Other than these small issues, I think the project was a success.

Feedback is always appreciated as usual!


Looks nice! I can see some of the tips are broken, is that intentional? A little bit of wonk will help out a lot, especially in the eraser clip :wink:
