I have a new render of an Iron Accent Piece. Saw one online and decided to make one in TC Mac Pro.
Working on one quadrant of the shape, I used Interpolate Splines and Circles to trace over the image, from there I trimmed the lines, fixed any gaps and extruded the shape. From there I mirrored it to form one arm, Polar Duplicated it to get the other three arms and used Add Solid to join all the arms into one piece.

The wrought iron was made by editing a default Metal Cast material, adjusting and changing the color.
I have attached the material if anyone would like to use it.

Johnny, you are tough! Ha Ha.

Nah- he just imported from thingverse!  ;D :)
 And even so, it still looks gorgeous! not very many Stl files which are able to "work out of the box"!- I sure have the crash reports to prove it!
