Are you ready to add a touch of elegance and versatility to your 3D designs? In this tutorial video, we'll guide you through the process of creating a stunning tassel and draw cord. Let's dive in!
1. Drawing the Cord:
Start by drawing the cord in 3D. Use the insert rectangle tool to create a rounded piece. Adjust the width and length to match the desired dimensions. Utilize the pen tool and SNAP to Center for precise edits. Add symmetry and stitch the edges together to form a loop.
2. Setting the Scene:
Adjust the layer and grid size to ensure the draw cord sits perfectly. Arrange the draw cord in the desired position, set the wrap type to flat, and assign the correct material.
3. Crafting the Tassel:
Now, let's move on to the tassel. Create it in two pieces using the insert rectangle tool. Clone the rectangle and adjust dimensions. Use clone by offset to create internal lines for slits, forming the fringe. Align and stitch the tassel pieces together to complete the loop.
4. Finishing Touches:
Dress the tassel for added realism. Apply shrink to the bottom edge for a gathered look. Enhance the visual appeal by creating a custom fabric with a tassel texture for added detail.
In just a few simple steps, you've successfully created a 3D tassel and draw cord to elevate your designs. You can also learn how to create a tunneled drawcord in a few simple steps.
