I’ve been using blender for 3 weeks now for work. I have already done several simple models and understand mostly how blender works.
Now I’m supposed to make a model where I start with a long and thin rectangle and then duplicate it move it a bit and then rotate it a little. Sounds pretty simple and it is but what that does is an ugly uncontinous pile of rectangles. What I really should be doing is a continuous plane which twists on it’s axis. http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v399/n6736/images/399566ab.eps.2.gif the one on the right is the one I’m supposed to make. Plus it has to be made of rectangles or other parts that are almost like rectangles.
I have spent the whole day trying to find anything that would work for this but I haven’t found anything. I tried arrays but it didn’t work.
Can someone help me?
Hopefully I was able to make you see what I’m trying to do here.
