Progress with the C-arm mount interface    #Blender

Hi folks,

I have spent so much time on this little component! It’s because I’ve made several versions of the C-arm mount interface, each unsatisfactory, and then started again. And each attempt now takes me about an hour. Wow am I faster or what!

So what made me so unhappy?

Well, I guess that none of them looked elegant enough for me. Some were too boxy. Other’s did not seem to fit the rest of the C-arm design. Anyway, eventually I came up with a version that I liked. Here it is:

Anyway, hope you like it.

OK – so what is the take-away from this?

Well, I know why I am getting faster. In almost every tutorial I have seen on Blender they talk about using hot-keys (shortcut-keys). I must admit that I didn’t really want to learn these keys. I have a lousy memory and the idea of learning more hit-keys was unattractive. This said, I did start doing so. Can’t tell you why because I don’t know. Just one day recently I said “What the heck” and did so. And behold – faster. So it is true. Learn the short cut keys.

As an aside, I apologise for my site being down. I only discovered that late this afternoon. Apparently part of my WordPress database had corrupted. So I had to do some techo work. Luckily it wasn’t that hard.

Thanks again for reading.




  1. Id really like to be able model and texture as quickly and skilfully as you. But I also think I need to sharpen up those skills I already have. It’s looking good Greg!
