Firstly, excellent tutorial — you showed me something, that I understood was impossible in one competitor’s software.
If you are able, and I would be incredibly grateful if you are, or anyone else for that matter — could you please have a look at the included dropbox image, and suggest how that ‘thread’ might be accomplished? Of course, the rest of the part is straightforward enough. Nevertheless, that ‘thread’ seems to get destroyed no matter how many times I try it.
On desktop applications, this is not straightforward, but doable — I was hoping to accomplish the same thing here.
Perhaps, if there were way to create an extruded ring, cut that circle, and stretch it around a cylinder, that would work — procedurally, I have no idea how.
Any help, any help at all — is fantastically appreciated!
