Tuck & Roll Upholstery

Anonymous
Not applicable
Does anyone have a suggestions on the best way to create a tuck n roll (aka tufted) effect with the mesh tool? Or some other tool.

But if you still want to model it:
1. draw 2 concentric circles using the Circle tool on top of the Mesh.
2. Select the Mesh then SPACE-click the smaller circle and create a hole into the Mesh.
3. Select the Mesh then SPACE-click the larger circle and but this time create a circular Ridge into the Mesh.
4. Set the elevation of both the hole and the ridge.
5. Drag copies or multiply.
