So this is what I came up with: A key, pencil, and spray bottle. Surprisingly the pencil gave me the most trouble with the worst result and I encountered some hurdles I couldn’t overcome. Notice it looks very simple in object mode but switching to edit mode gives a different story:
Everything was segmented but I couldnt’ find a way to make them distinct at all.
The loop cut (ctrl r if I’m getting the name wrong) worked everywhere BUT the cone up top, which I was going to use to make a pencil tip. It wouldn’t show the purple loop and if I clicked it would just created a random vertex on the cone. Maybe doing it before joining it with the cylinder would’ve helped but I was already at the end.
I loop cut segments for the metal at the bottom (highlighted part) but I couldn’t think of a way to make them bulge out like you’d see at the bottom of any pencil. Extrude and Insetting both failed, as they created separate prisms for each face selected, and extruding/insetting a whole row at the same time had ridiculous results. If you have any comments, thanks, but otherwise I’ll just post another view of the key and spray bottle.
