The Razorback – Part 53: Creating Battery Cables

In the below video, we take a look at creating some battery cables using a few modeling techniques. The actual connector is created using some simple polygonal modeling, and the cable is created using a SweepNURBS object and a few deformers.

Head on past the break to see the video, and do let me know what you think of it.

  1. Jamie –

    I’ve found your screencasts to be very informative and educational. You have a very natural way of explaining what you do and why you do it that is very easy to follow and learn from. Thanks for taking the time to create these tutorials and 5 minute tips.

    What happened to the Razorback project? You haven’t posted a new segment for 3 and a half years! Have you given up on it? Or did you finish it and didn’t make screencasts of the last few chapters? I’d really love to see the finished version and any additional screencasts you have created.

    • Hey thanks for the comment, and the kind words.

      About the video series; the view count on these videos was always pretty low, and I was really doing it for myself. You could say I got bored and stopped, but that wouldn’t be the whole truth. In fact, I’ve had two kids, moved houses, picked up extra jobs, and started additional hobbies. Life is full, and life is good; this leaves less time for the Razorback 🙂

      I may pick it back up someday, but probably not in the near future.

      • Jamie –

        Thanks for the reply. I understand how life is constantly changing and our priorities have change right along with it. Congratulations on the 2 kids, the extra work and the new hobbies! I wish you all the success in the world. I really enjoy watching your training, so I look forward to any additional tutorials you come up with (not Razorback).

        Thanks again!

  2. Hi, could you leave a Download Link here in the Description?
    I’m very impressed by your Razorback Model
    I’d Like to Print it out in a 3D Printer…

  3. Very nice. I’m impressed. someone sent me this model of a metal staircase
    that was nothing but splines ready for this kind of treatment. I’d be very
    interested in seeing more of this modeling technique.
    Is this your work too?

    I’d love to see how you deal with this construction to bring it to
    completion.

  4. Excellent, especially I liked the way you make the shrink tube, using the
    taper deformer.
