In this tutorial Chris will start by modeling realistic wire meshes using sweep nurbs and cloners. Then he will show you how to render the mesh in such a way as to bring it back in as a bump map for use in other projects. Next, Chris will show you how to mold our wire mesh to a useful shape. Finally we will use that mesh in a full model of a 3D microphone.
