building a wave.
Break this construction into two seperate builds.
First build a flat flag, that part should be pretty straight forward, so let's focus on building the ripple.
in order to do that you need to create 3 lines.
First line is along the right side of the flag.
2nd line is along the left side of the flag
third line along the top length of the flag, and needs to be a loopy wavey line that reflects the ripples you want to make. if your board is 2" thick than make sure that the biggest top to bottom swing in this wavey line is less than that. See the first photo, this is all done in the drawing tab.
now go to the Modeling tab, click on "Two Rail Sweep", top center of this tool screen. Next click on both vertical lines ( shift click), and than hit the "Use Selection" button in the two rail sweep tool box. if the nodes are not straight across from each other on these two lines, click on one of the lines and Aspire will ask if you want to move the node.
After hitting "use selection" than click on the wavey line and click on the "apply" button. You should now have a wavey model. Save it as "wave",Once i have the 3 D model of the wave, i generally take the Sculpting tool in Aspire to make the waves less vertical and
Next, open your flat flag model. Using the first icon on the top left of the "Combine with other components" tool block... your flag should flutter.....
Basically, the flutter or wave is a seperate model from the flag, once both are done, they are easy to stack.
