That's how fridge looked like from the back?!(Look of shock)

One way to make the puddle is to create a poly sphere, turn it into a smooth proxy, than flattening it down to the floor, tweak it, then apply your wonderful texture. I think.

If you still have the revolved container's original curve, duplicate one and size it down, and revolve the second curve, it should fit your container well. I gave the fluid the same texture I gave glass (some color and play with transparency), that's the only way I know how :-).

Cord has something to do with twist deformer, but I was also defeated by that one, even F1 didn't help. :-(

Default Re: Liquid problem...

I should really have explained my container, it's kind of like one of those cheapo 'Washing up bowls' you put in the sink? I don't know if you have similar bowls in Canada..?
Kind of a squat shaped bucket, so the liquid will be viewed from the top only, as it's not transparent.
So I don't think that method will work (Or maybe I have it wrong?)

Hmm maybe if i just make a sheet of glass? Hmmm.... will give it a go...
Regards Scraggy
