Hi, I’m semi-new to blender and am trying to model a decent looking tire. I’ve followed the tutorial from this thread however when it comes to copying the treads I cannot get it to come out correctly. I’ve tried extruding the region and that leaves large spaces between the treads and I’ve also tried the ertrude dup function and that doesn’t work too well either. I’ve tried just duplicating the mesh however it doesn’t connect the verts together and when I go to bend it it ends up all vented. I’ve tried spin dup as well and that makes it look really choppy.
So my question is, how do I effectivly copy the treads until I have the length I need without having large gaps in between the treads? I know there has to be some way to do it but I havn’t found it or I’m not doing something correctly.
Also why hasn’t there every been any good tutorials written for blender on tires?
