Where can I find, or how can I make a heart shape for Bryce?  I’ve looked thru my stuff and I just don’t have one.  I even tried to make one in Shape Magic to use in Bryce and that’s not working very well for me.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

WOW!  These are perfect.  Did you just make these or did you have them on hand?  In any case, thanks tons.  That first one is exactly what I’m looking for.

Nope I just did a Google search using “Heart Shaped OBJ” and one was toward the bottom of the page then I typed in “Heart Models” in to shareCg’s search box..took me 5 mins

Super.  Thanks again.  I checked out the obj heart and it will work perfectly for my Valentine backgrounds.

Now a question has been posed, how were they made?

Your guess is good as mine.

Heart shape would have also been very easy to make using the Terrain Editor.

Cheers

Now a question has been posed, how were they made?

Having looked a few times over the years and failing to find a suitable one like I am imagining in my head, one task I intent to do is to try and make a heart shape for Bryce (Peter the Polar Bear will have a series of Valentine Card images this year).
So when I get round to it, I’ll try and post the method I use (If I can actually figure one out).

As kiwi_gg says, you could use the terrain editor (and I’d also us a symmetrical lattice as a starting point for that), but I was going to see if I could work out the geometry and make it using boolean modelling.

Intersect boolean mode could help,  I once made a reasonable copy of the Aer lingus logo using intersect modelling (It was a challenge using intersect) That was a shamrock, and the leaf is made of 3 almost heart shapes.

Of course the working files were either on the external that died, or on the HD from 2 PCs ago, which is sitting on the shelf, not coupled up to any PC at the moment.

I suggest you might try MetaBalls - my favorite method to make most things organic.

Only a suggestion…..Oh! i fear you may end up with a real photo-realistic human heart…...probably not what is wanted.

Ok! i will make you a 3D Heart using only Bryce.

It is getting late and i can’t sleep because of post-tutorial depression.

The best medicine for that is:  to get into Brycing!

So in few minutes or so you will have your hearts plus the methods for making many of them

Hello,

Here is the starting point from which the Heart can be developed further including later a H_Render then a Symmetrical Lattice which allows some refinements on the basic form. I will explore those later after this post.

Now for the basic images. You can see the basic geometry is easy but there are many variations i have not tried.

I’m going to have a try using meta-balls, but here is the initial Boolean version.
I think It’s more simple than Peter’s version using only two stretched half spheres .

This one even simpler being just two of the Droplets found in the Misc Object library.

That is very nice what you have done. Demonstrates what can be done with Bryce with very simple means!

Here is another variant of what i did before but both halves were rotated slightly around the X-axis [Object Space].
