Looking for help w 5 point patches

Recommended Posts

I have tried deleting splines & re-adding them. This has solved a couple of the problem spots where I cannot make a 5 point patch. The others are stubborn...could I have some duplicate control points or something - if so how would I find them? Also, on four 5 point patches there are squiggly line artifacts even with porcelain. again - none of my attempts to fix have worked. Any suggestions?

I see one pair of patches that have dark corners but I dont' see the squiggly lines. Where are they?

I grouped them and made them yellow calling them Problem 2....maybe squiggly lines isn't the best choice but there are dark wave like lines curving away from the holes.

5 point patches like to be fat and flat. Long, skinny ones with one tiny edge won't behave well.

 

I added "Added Spline" to make the 5 pointers closer in proportion to a "regular pentagon" like on the 5-pointer button.

I needed to add more holes - so I re did the whole thing being VERY CAREFUL not to have 2 control points in the same location, Etc. Got the Outer layer perfect - great. Copied it - great - resized and flipped normal to make cylinder liner - closed up seams around holes - great. then normals started flipping and now I have 2 outer 5 pointers that just wont close up....damn. Is there anything different in Ver 1`5 from Ver 13 about 5 pointers? I never had so many headaches with them.

I'd have to see it.

 

I thought the "outer" was the original that you had all closed.
