SciFi TubeTool's or The almighty wurstrolltexturizer

After a long time I am now proud to show you some of my secret tools. Straight out of my wired sculptingworld. The SciFi tube tools in 3 sizes...

Sculpting segmented tubes has always given sculptors a hard time. It is possible to make a long roll and to cut little lines in in laborious work. Long experiments and braingrease made me think of this simple but effective tool. It just took me some time to technically translate what I had thought of. The tool is made in three different sizes. The way of working is very simple. With the backside of the tool just roll up a long sausage/roll in the desired diameter. Then place it on the checkered side of the tool plate. Use the table as stopper/guide and with help of the second segment of the tool texture your roll. Place it on the table again and if nescessary roll over it with the plain side of the tool again. It is possible to put a wire inbetween too. The different sizes can be combined, so with a little practise you can do great tubes and ribbed pipes in various diameters.


Here you see the Toolset with 2 riffelpales each size...
