Introduction



This tutorial is a step by step guide to making tubes in Bryce. It's a technique I've used when modelling stuff for my renders as you can see from the image above. The robot thingy's arms etc were all made using the multi replication feature. Quite often this function can be quite baffling. But if you follow these simple steps, it won't be long until you get the hang of how to use the function with relative ease.

This is a great tutorial. It helped me to learn how to use the multi-replicate function. As I always do I experimented with the settings, and discovered some extra stuff that could be done using this function. I made a tutorial for myself using Microsoft Office - PowerPoint. What I would like to know is this: If I credit you and this great tutorial as the original tutorial on making tubes in Bryce, would it be okay to upload my own tutorial? It is not using the cylinder primitive. I use the metaball and the cone primitives. I also show how to get more complex curves that make a more coiled effect. Let me know what you think I should do.

How about making a smooth surface - instead of all the edges from the tubes?
