3d model stylus pen

Comment by Hilario Brustkern

hello everybody and welcome to this tutorial how to model a stylus and a bass in shape with 3d in this video i will show you how to create only via minimal sketches everything what we need and then add the details only via direct modeling before we get started let's go to units set everything to millimeters and make sure our snapping is all turned on we can go to the front view zoom out center on the grid and we are ready to get started because the pencil will stand inside this holder vertically it makes sense to start our first sketch in front view with the pencil from the center of my scene i will start drawing a line i have auto constraint turned on so when i go really horizontal really vertical it adds those directional constraints already i draw a very incorrect proportion of the shape of this pencil because now i can dimension few elements and i don't have to scroll so much so what this means is first this point we will lock i don't want this to move from here to there vertically the distance should be 20 millimeters you see there are actually three triangles diagonal horizontal and a vertical there it's a vertical dimension the radius is 4.5 and then the length that is 166. so you see this way it's a lot easier to block a lot of dimensions and details into the sketch before we have to zoom and then pan a lot very good so with this very basic sketch now we can see how does this look when we revolve it 360 degrees this looks good this edge we can by 4.5 again the diameter is 9. if i would like to round this into a half dome it has to be the half of the diameter or which is actually the radius so 4.5 millimeters here we can round this by 10 if we would like to not too small not too big but here we have a point so that's a little bit tricky that means this approach doesn't work we have to modify our sketch a little bit still the top edge so this and then here at this point i keep as they are because as you saw very easily i can add the filleting during modeling i will keep my sketch as brutally simple as possible this line here i will remove and add a new line now from this end point to here i would like to add an arc i can go to arc draw myself an arc to there there it is very good the arc to this line already is tangent if you do not see the tangent constraints here i will remove this we can add this here if we would revolve this we would have down here a very sharp point how can we fix this well what i want is that when this would be a horizontal line that this arc runs tangent to there one very easy way is i simply select this point and then drag it onto this center line here you see and 180 degrees so this line now i don't need anymore and i can give this a dimension this should be 0.75 that tip has around the diameter of 1.5 millimeters very good so with this done let's give this a try one more time profile the center line rotate 360 degrees 10 and 4.5 this looks good when we select this we can increase this a little bit or not based on how complex the the shape is even while this looks actually rather simple sometimes indirect modeling that is very easy possible and if not one very easy way is just remove this part we can set this to one so we make this two millimeters and then just redo this part so the reason why i showed this is billeting takes time only to fill it when really you know most of the stuff is done and i can add the time in for detailing very good i like this with two millimeters at the tip more and you saw also with the sketch being that simple it wasn't really much work to recreate this we have right here a small groove so let's create a line there there there and there this should be half a millimeter from there to there nine millimeters but please vertical okay here we are and i bring this in this is roughly half a millimeter something millimeter in i can be more precise with the sketch the nice thing is i can do now um a revolve object remove it from the tip and i and if i do not like the result i can either go back edit the sketch and then redo it or simply indirect modeling adjust it let me show you how how this works we will hide this object select this profile select this edge go to revolve there we are very good i will go to tools and then subtract and say from this body please remove this one and do i want to remove keep anything this cutting tool i do not want so keep none done there we are okay planet and i mentioned if something is not the way we want maybe this diameter now we would like to be 2. look how easy that is let's say this and this these two i would like to move by one millimeter or not okay and what about we make this one this is maybe too thin so 1.5 very good so i hope you saw that actually the sketch was pretty much just only the starting block and then final shape exploration then i do via direct modeling one very iconic feature of this second version of the pencil is that it has a flat side and i show you a little trick how we can figure this out so we go and hide and rename this that's a stylus we call this front and hide it too go to sketch circle and i draw myself here circle the radius should be four point five there you see now nine millimeters so um i kind of like have a top view of my geometry now then i can draw a line there and there and there i make a box very good and draw a line from the center point to the midpoint there this point i will lock here's my radius let's call this 4 and there you see that this tiny distance there is half a millimeter that's perfect so this circle now i can remove i don't really need it anymore take a look at this sketch from a perspective view select it and extrude it through the whole object there we are beautiful a small rounding to make it nice and comfortable and there we are and we can do the same here okay very good so the stylus is done know how based on this can we very quickly create also a base which then we could 3d print i will call this actually first stylus trim or simply use a name that makes sense this is my front sketch and right now i look at the site best would be to go to the back view or the front view there we are i will select everything actually no i will not select everything the stylus this i do not need here and here this i will select and then move everything up by or millimeters or is or sufficient okay very good then i can hide this one more time so why did i do this when i make myself a base where then put the stylus in i do not want the tip to touch the ground which is why there is four millimeter of a space okay now to create the rest that is super easy i select this can i move this no this was good i just wanted to check it which means here is the grid i can draw two millimeters over and then from there draw a line straight up there we are this line i can delete this was just a helper this point i lock so i can't move then i draw a line here and a line from there going to there this line i will specify as 25 millimeters and this point to here vertically this should be 28 millimeters very nice and this to here horizontally let's make this 15. there you see i have some basic dimensions okay also here i w

Thanks for your comment Hilario Brustkern, have a nice day.

hey guys martin from flipnormals here in today's video we're doing something a little bit differently we recently purchased a huion tablet a 22 canvas plus i think it's called we're gonna be switching out the way i work usually i work on a regular intuos pro but i really wanted a pen display for a while so it's not really a review this is sort of my i guess first impressions of using a pen display like this it's the one right here in the background so i'll just be recording my thoughts and i guess me using it for the first time i haven't even peeled up the film yet but more importantly we'll be using it for sculpting a lot of the videos i've seen on youtube has been specifically for drawing and painting i haven't really seen much about using pen displays for sculpting so i hope you learned something let's jump into it so right off the bat i just want to mention that this video is solely focused on sculpting like i mentioned before there isn't really a lot of that content out there so for anyone interested in sculpting that's kind of why i wanted to do this another note is that we paid for this tablet ourselves i know people are going to ask it's not sponsored or anything i just wanted a pen display so we did [ __ ] out the money for this ourselves so i bought this tablet originally to get faster at sculpting and to change up the way i work after having recorded myself having watched tutorials that i've done i started to notice that my sculpting wasn't as efficient or decisive as it could have been i was doing a lot of zooming in and out rotating around the model when it wasn't really necessary it was more like it's almost like it had become a habit to just do it to sanity check so i went back and forth with myself thinking about what can i do and ultimately i landed on i guess one of the most radical things which was completely change up the way i work both in zbrush but also the hardware that i used and after searching around i kind of landed on huion as i think the best choice because it's fairly affordable and it covered all of my needs when it came to sculpting and one of the first things that i was kind of worried about was how was the ergonomics going to be i had previously used a cintiq both for work and unfortunately personal stuff and every time i did use it i always got shoulder pain or neck pain i do realize that when i was using it i was just using it with the built-in stands that they they came with i think they still do some of them where they're like angled at maybe like 15 or 20 degrees and working with that for you know four five six hours a day sitting hunched over definitely wasn't good for my body so when i saw that the huion here came with a fairly reasonable and good stand i was like okay that's that's the plus it's included in the price very very nice and i don't know the exact angles for for the stand but it folds up almost to 90 degrees and then almost flat kind of like the the cintiqs so i've been using this tablet for something like a week now and for for long durations i always try to stay within the 40 45 to 60 minute range when i'm working take a break obviously sometimes that doesn't go according to plan and i sit there for three hours and like with anything if you do that for too much you know your body will start to hurt so it's definitely important to still keep that in mind even if you do switch up your workflow like this i will say it's nice i think it's a pretty light display you know it's easy for me to move it around on my desk i already have two monitors so this kind of acts as my third i still need to figure out that whole setup but one of the things i really like about the 22 plus here is that it just comes with like a three in one cable so i just insert the one cable in the tablet and if i need to remove it or if i need to use my desk without it i just unplug that one cable and put this in the corner somewhere one thing that i have found to be a little bit tricky is when it comes to using the keyboard so for sculpting whether you're doing this in c brush mudbox or blender whatever it is you know you'll probably need a keyboard unless you have everything on screen which for me is a little impractical it's not as fast so figuring out what to do with the keyboard i went for the most obvious solution and just took my full size keyboard and put it behind the display off to the left a little bit i'm right handed so i'll use my left hand on the keyboard this is by no means ideal i'm kind of leaning towards maybe buying a smaller keyboard maybe like num pad size with a few more keys and then changing up my hotkeys in zbrush and if i need anything else i can always go over to the other full size keyboard it is a little bit tricky so if you know if you're typing uh renaming sub tools or doing any kind of writing really while the display is on your desk you kind of need to shift it around and move out the keyboard or maybe move it in front of the display in order to properly get access to it so that's definitely something to to keep in mind and purely from an ergonomics point of view when working one of the things i have noticed is that i can't keep my left arm too much to the left where the keyboard is otherwise i do feel that in my shoulder and the same thing with the hand that sort of rests on the display i have to be vigilant otherwise my wrist starts to bend upwards and you don't really want that you kind of want us your your wrist to be as stiff as possible otherwise you know you might get carpal tunnel or start to feel some pain in your wrist now moving on to comparing it to a regular pen tablet for the past i don't know 10 or 15 years i've been using a normal pen tablet wacom intuos pro i think they're called now i've used these since forever i started out with an a3 version and then i actually i guess downgraded to an a4 version because i felt like the a3 version was too big and i guess it's one of those things where you sacrifice a little precision when you go down to an a4 size but it makes it a lot more manageable on a desk now that's interesting because buying this display i didn't want something that was just a4 size i wanted something that was bigger that was the whole point of this gaining more precision but even with an a3 pen tablet and this being a 21 21 and a half inches i still feel like with the display i'm way more precise i feel more immersed when i'm sculpting it feels like i'm actually moving real clay around i can move closer and further away from the screen depending on exactly what i'm doing it's one to one meaning that wherever your pen is that's where your eye is looking so that's what you're moving it's one of those things where when you're using a pen tablet you kind of have to adjust and relearn the way you do things you have to decouple your hand from your eye and then learn where your hand is moving and track that with your eye obviously everyone who's using a pen tablet usually gets the hang of this pretty quickly but there is definitely a difference and i noticed that now going to uh a display instead like one of the things that i suffer from or suffer it's very s
