How do I wrap the eyes to a sphere? (Making angry birds)
How do I wrap the eyes to a sphere? I'm making angry birds on Autodesk Inventor Professional 2008. I'm trying to get the eyes wrapped to the head. I tried embossing it but it doesn't seem to work on spheres/ovals. It looks weird when it's extruded so I was wondering if there is any other way. Maybe extruding it curved? Not sure, any ideas?
From the uploaded screenshot of the file, I think, you might be good by doing it with the extrude feature....... since you only have to do the eyes on a revolved surface.................... extruding the eyes from the surface would give results almost similar to wrapping the sketch around the surface.......... I don't know if you have seen my angry birds models(Angry Birds (RED))........ I have used the extrude method......
You may want to try to a 3D sketch with splines tangent to the sphere and then extrude the closed loop. This is a difficult way of doing what you want. Another easier way would be to create a sketch plane at the angle you want the eye back on the head and then revolve an eye sphere that intersects the head so only a portion of it is seen protruding from the head. Once you've achieved the proper location of the eye, then mirror it to the other side. I hope this was helpful.
