  • TWIST a tall BOX figure.
  • RIPPLE a PLANE
  • MELT a SPHERE
  • BEND a tall PYRAMID

The MEADOW: Create a plane from the Standard Primitives command panel. Use the Hair and Fur (WSM) Modifier to add GRASS to your plane. EXPERIMENT with all of the parameters for your grass! Then, use the CREATE Tab and pull down AEC EXTENDED> FOLIAGE to add some TREES to your grass. Use the BEND modifier to bend your trees, as if the wind was blowing. Save as MEADOW in your Chapter 5 folder.

The MOLECULAR CHAIN: Create a PLANE (Length= 300, Width= 60, Length Segments= 11, Width Segments= 1) from the Standard Primitives command panel. Try using the TWIST and the LATTICE modifiers on your plane to create a molecular chain, see below. CHALLENGE: How can you make this molecule TWICE as long, while maintaining the same proportions?
