Is there a set of ram's horns I can download?

Postby sg13NHarri » Fri Sep 14, 2018 8:08 am

Hi all! I need a set of ram's horns for a character I am currently trying to create. I've searched every category on the site that I can think of, and have yet to find anything. Do you guys know if there are even any available on here? If so, where?

That sounds pretty cool... Maybe you can use a 3d model from the internet and put it into makeclothes. For example this model I found just now: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2504469

(geometry of repurposed models can be a real pain, though, as the faces in a model have to be either all triangles or all quadrilaterals for makeclothes to accept it)

Alternately: There was also a blender trick I heard about somewhere, of using parent/child objects + empty axes + array modifier (rotation) to create a chain of objects. I don't remember exactly how but it was super cool :ugeek: ...

It's not super beginner friendly, but I think this is how it was done: https://blender.stackexchange.com/a/2403

You get things like this:

adorable coils


I'm putting all this effort into this because I remember having fun playing around with this trick. I made a bunch of horns/spirals and meant to turn them into clothes but never got around to it.

edit: I figured it out!
Blend file contains the ram horn. I feel so accomplished. :mrgreen:

This is just a very quick attempt at horns - all i did was make a bezier curve in the shape of horns and then bevel it to the desired thickness.

This seems unlikely to be because of your computer. You may wish to try again. Perhaps the download got corrupted.

Thank you! I wish I knew how to post pictures on here. I want to show you the character I managed to create.

When you are using the little text editor for posting use the tags along the top ie: B Quote URL the one to use is Img click on it upload your picture the close it by clicking on Img again.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Still couldn't figure it out (it's :30 in the morning right now). So I'm just going to post a link to my dropbox... :D

Below the save draft/preview/submit buttons is "options" and "upload attachments".
!. Click upload attachment to dipslay the "browse" and "add the file" buttons
2. Click "browse"
3. Navigate to the file you want to attach to your post
4. Press ok to close the dialog
5. Click "add the file" to add the file to your post
