  2. Hey just an FYI GSG’s RSS feed is a bit behind, still on Humbug winners.
    I’m sure many people (like myself) have been missing the new stuff if they sue RSS to check in.

    Is there any way you could to a tutorial on how to make the Olympic rings?

    • I made a quick version of this. I used the circle spline primitive and chose the ring profile with an outer radius of 23.5 inches and an inner radius of 20 inches in the +Z axis. I then put this into an Extrude and extruded it 2 inches on the Z azis. I used the extruded ring so I could texture the caps differently than the extrusions using the C1 selection. I made a chrome material and dropped it on the ring. Then I made a colored material and dropped it on the ring in the Object Manager. I clicked on the new color in the OM and typed in C1 (capital C) in the Selection field. Copy this ring 4 times and give each a different color. The trick is then to position and rotate each ring so they can interlock. Add lighting and you’re done. Here are a couple of screenshots from my Facebook page to show the rotation: https://www.facebook.com/marv.ruona

    Nice idea, but both the word ‘Olympic’ and the logo are trademarked. The Swiss-based junket is a commercial enterprise worth billions, securing tax exemptions in every city it bankrupts. It’s not beyond them to pursue a violation of trademark.

      i think there needs to be money exchanged or defamation of the brand for them to pursue damages.

    OK, mines uploaded!

    Brendan, I made the Olympic rings for my vid, I just used tubes with sections cut out where they intersect, then move the points. Added a hypernurb to each tube and loop cut near the edges to keep a squareish edge.

    My first submission : )

    Just checking here because in step 2 on the submission page, this part is not clear to me “Don’t forget to add a link back to this page.”

    I submitted my Vimeo link in the form here, but am not sure where I link back to this page on Vimeo. If that’s necessary, let me know thanks!
