Drawing An Armrest With a Volute

Article Image

Just lately I used to be having a dialogue with one other SketchUp person
about drawing volutes such as you would discover on the tops of some
classical columns. Whereas displaying him a approach to attract these, it
occurred to me that the identical fundamental thought might be utilized to
drawing a basic armrest discovered on many rocking chairs as nicely
as armed eating chairs. Right here’s a video displaying the method. For
this demo I’m simply making up the armrest form as I am going alongside.
You would possibly really begin with a drawing you could possibly hint otherwise you
would possibly work from dimensions picked up off of an actual chair.


I used a number of extensions and plugins on this video. Hyperlinks are
listed beneath.

Bernoulli Spiral from the
Curve Maker

Bezier Spline from the BZ



Make sure to learn the descriptions for these instruments earlier than you
set up them. BZ Spline and Curviloft additionally require LibFredo6.9
or greater.
