Serrated Edge
I was curious what the best way to model a serrated edge on a blade. I've done it but it was very time consuming. I'm familiar with poly and sub d modeling, no experience with nurbs.

This is how I would do it, after duplicating and merging, just extrude the back down to close the hole and the tip can be done fairly easily aswell

If it's not going to be seen up close, you could probably get away with a flat plane with mapped transparency.

Acid that looks perfect for what i needed. And simpler than i was doing it. Now that i see it that was looks obvious now...

NextDesign, I plan on having a fairly close view, i also prefer to have as much detail modeled as possible instead of textured. Mostly for the challenge of modeling.
