I was asked to make a tutorial on how to make a rounded die.
Finally I did it, in three parts, for a simple rounded D6 and for 3DS Max (I am not enough familiar with the plugins of Sketchup).
- Part 1/3: Creating the shape
- Part 2/3: Hollowing
- Part 3/3: Adding pips or numbers
There is no sound (so no French accent ) but instead there are subtitles.
You can see the results via this custom die or this complete set of dices (with a discount).
Actually I did not exactly follow my tutorial (the sphere is smaller and with more polygons and the pips are abigger), but the tutorial should allow you to understand the process.
