Modeling a Can Pull Tab with Polygon Modeling and Subdivision Surfaces, Part 2

This tutorial is a beginner tutorial on modeling a can pull tab. I try to review some of the elementary polygon modeling concepts involved, but I also assume you are not totally new to polygon modeling and subdivision surfaces. This tutorial uses Design 3D 7’s new template images and multi-edge bridging, but with a couple of adjustments could easily be done in CX 6.

    Hi Jean,

    Thanks for this tutorial! I learned many things and your pacing was very good! And this example is perfect for that soup can I’d been trying to model. Back to that now.
