cadmovie1604_12 – Subdivision Modeling – Part 12

Creating a Bollard

I often use this bollard object as an introduction to 3D modelling because it is reasonably simple yet uses several 3D modelling concepts. If you have seen my Vectorworks Essentials Tutorial manual you will have completed this exercise using three extruded rectangles.

In this exercise I would like to show you how you can create this type of object.  When you first start looking at subdivision modelling you might assume that it’s only useful for complex curving shapes. This bollard however has quite sharp edges.
