Octopus Fillet.

Tue, 4 Jan 2011

So, I've been working on the Octopus model today, I've also had to catch up on emails and website maintenance so I've I've only done a little, however, the progress made has been instructive so I thought I'd share…

I've changed the way the legs are attached to the body so that they look more natural. Having looked at octopus pictures I've decided to add a curved fillet between each leg. At times like these it is tricky to get a full length ruler into place to take measurements so I reached for my trusty ruler.pdf file. Here I have a collection of paper rulers of various sizes that I can print out and use.

I add rulers as and when I need them. I've made the file available at the end of this blog post so you can download and use it. It is in millimeters, if you use the archaic imperial system you're on your own I'm afraid.

When I'm prototyping I print out a page of rulers, cut out the ones that I need and use them to measure the pieces so that I can make the appropriate changes. Good eh!?

    very very good, yes. Took me

    very very good, yes. Took me a minute to get why you were doing that. My first thought was why not just use a ruler. Then I read it again and saw you are only using a wee little bit so it's less bulky for small spots. Brill!
