Tutorial: Creating a Spider Web


Oliver the man behind BlenderTuts released a compete series about modeling a spider web. The tutorial does not only focus on pure modeling but also touches on cloth simulation, web deformation, and the particle system for water drops. Enjoy

  1. Lactose the Intolerant on

    Thanks for the tutorial, Oliver! your website in general has some very nice tutorials so I went ahead and bookmarked it.

  2. Great tut Olivar. One small criticism - the spirals don't so much curve towards the centre as curve downwards towards gravity. i.e. top ones curve down, bottom ones curve down. I guess dragging the handles down rather than scaling towards the centre would correct this?

    Thank you again.

  3. well with all my respect ! if I have to spent 75 minutes of my life watching a video on how to create a spider web, plus may be 2 hours? implementing it , then I rather animate a cockroach or ant walking around !

    hmmm... ! :) we live difficult times, we need simpler stuff, quick and probablyvless quality...but that's where the money is !

  4. Now, videos are working. I have had time to watch only parts 1 and 2 sofar, but I can say that they are interesting. As Im learning Blender 2.59, it helped me with some features. Thanks ! I will watch with interest part 3 asap !

    What actions Mister do you talk about? Are you high? or still hurt about Great Dane?
    Please behave accordingly since this is a place to talk about work on Blender, no about race, money or discrimination as you intended it to be.
    Quite sure you were the one writing the comment above just to make yourself look good.....respect others people mind and search for real things before jumping into conclusions :)

  6. Great article, great voice and pacing. I don't get the Nodes stuff but you've inspired me to look at that, Thanks Mate!
