Houdini

Torus, Tube, Bend & Fuse

In Houdini, a Torus is a primitive type. But I wanted to make a torus from a tube, and to do so I learned how to use the Bend and Fuse nodes. Better still, by using parameter expressions I was able to make my new Torus network flexible so that you could change the parameters on the Tube, and the result would still be a Torus.

Course Description
With our Houdini series we'll take an exploratory approach. Playing around with all the different nodes, and trying to build interesting & challenging models and simulations. Houdini can be intimidating at first, but with a little bit of experimentation, the complexity starts to dissolve and a powerful and simple tool emerges. I hope you will learn to love Houdini as much as we do!
