Low poly shoe
Hi guys,

Some fast work to test AO option (thanks to Olve11) - I followed his advice and you can check the result.
Modeled: W3D 2.1.5 + Mlab (shoelace)
Texture: Gimp 2.8.16 ( 2048x2048 )

Tri: 3038

(with AO)


(without AO)


(wire)


(UV Map)


(shoelace from Mlab)


It's hard to admit but I never used AO before Sad I've seen this map many times but never wonder how or why to use it - even for my previous work the diffuse was shaded manually and it's nothing simple to achieve. Anyhow, in 2.1.5 I found also Normal Map option and I wonder what's the difference between external soft (xNormal / Gimp), can anyone share with some experience?

BR, Hank

Well done! Could you explain how did you do the shoelace? I can see that it`s Mlab but still don't know how exactly do that.

Hi Marcin,

here are my steps:
1. create object which you want to use for path
Usually I cut some cube and scale it along one axis, later move requested vertices, so it meets path directions (easier to manage with several geometry windows)



2. select one edge + L



3 RMB + Lots more + Tubes from loop paths



4. modify the values according to your needs (ngons, size, max number of steps etc.)



Let me know if any help needed.

BR, Hank

Hank, I added a post dedicated to that in the How To session: Using the Wings3D 'Create Normalmap' feature

Thanks Micheus,
But to be honest, since I already use Gimp for most of my works, I will follow oort's advice and try GIMP Normal Plug in (insane bump) - it's combined version of spec/normal/displacement/occlusion.
Anyhow, Normal Map in W3D is great option too.

Sorry but I really don't see the difference between the object you start with in step 1 and the final object in the last step. What am I missing?

Take a look at first object - it's a deformed cube and the final is created with hexagon. And you can create even more complicated if you want...
See below recoding and try to create it with W3D under 3 min. Smile
