I'm trying to make the hilt of a sword, and I'd like the grip to have diagonal lines across it rather than horizontal. IS there an easy way of doing this?
MY reference material shows a spiral, but I this is going to be 3D printed and a spiral will just be too complicated, so I just want to make diagonal pits\grooves by resizing every other loop and applying a subsurface modifier to smooth it out.
I tried making two regular loop cuts and doing a loop select and then rotating them. Then creating other loop cuts in between. Which did make them at an angle, but it also distorted the lines of my sword hilt.
