This week, using Rail Clone and Rail Extrude.
A few people this month emailed on how to create a simple tank tread, and the way to go is Rail Clone. Check out this week's free video at www.danablan.com (http://www.danablan.com)

Aloha Dan,

If you have any pull with NewTek, ask if they can give us the ability to save our own clothFX Presets for that dropdown on the Extra Tab. Then we can have our own tweaked "Thick Cotton".

:D

BTW, I know we can save and load clothFX settings - but why can't we have our own entries in the dropdown?

:D

oh yeah.. nice tutorial (as I've come to expect from you).

Site is still down... well, I'll have to wait I guess. Thanks anyway, I'm sure it's good :)

Hi Greg - how's things in the Pacific?

I don't know if I have any pull, but that's a great idea to have our own cloth presets. I'll suggest..

My site is working again. It wasn't really down, just suddenly not fully loading. Weird. I have to reset the pages, but the free video links are there. www.danablan.com

Tanks treads? Again? Seems to come into fashion again! 3D dudes will never change!

More about rail clone and rail extrude than tank treads. Most tank tread threads (say that 10 times fast) are about animating and leaving treads in the sand. This free video isn't.

Didn't have you in mind writing these lines, more the guys who requested this kind of material. Tanks treads seem to haunt me since 5.6 ... ;)

Cheers
