Oriental Fan 3D Model

I modeled something pretty cool today, an oriental fan! It's available for sale at turbosquid.com. I'm very happy with how it turned out. It took me a while to work out how I was going to get the paper part of the fan to deform and I tried two methods before finally figuring out what worked. Check it out, there are .mov files over at TurboSquid that show it deforming.


  1. Hi ! Very interesting 3D model.

    I'm actually lloking for something like this but i was wondering how did you make the rig for that one ? Did you used blend shapes ?


    1. No, I used joints and skinned them to the model. You could use blendshapes I'm sure, but I think that would be maddening. The joints are much easier.
