I have created with morph.

How to make it as solid or to look like solid??

Here is the image attached.

Is it is ok? Or need to do some corrections!

If you have access to the actual sculptures: https://forums.sketchup.com/t/awesome-3 ... p-0/118404

That might be a quick solution for you.

The one time I had to do a sculpture, I just went for 'boxing' it out with basic shapes and described that actual sculpture in the contract documents. No-one in their right mind was going to pay me for that amount of hours of trying to model something that some factory just has lying on the shelf (they won't reference my drawings) or if it is existing already, even less reason to model it accurately. Just my (im)polite opinion ;)

@Roopa

Right now you have catched my intrest ... and I would like to see how it can be done.

On another side, I would try to download a nice 3D model head for those animals, and make sure that they can be manipulated in Rhino, Why ??

So that you can use the Grasshopper ArchiCAD connection to make those time consuming adjustments easily and quickly, and send the data to ArchiCAD as Morphs ... unless you need something really specific which in this case you will need a 3D sculpture artist, that can export his work to a file exchange format compatible with ArchiCAD.

Out of curiosity, does you requirements have something to do with Minoan or Hindu architecture ??

Now I need to edit that model. I converted into morph. I need to open the mouth of the animal from that we have a step. How to do that??

That is the bit you will find is rather difficult.
Archicad is really not very good at this sort of modelling.

I would split the head so you have a top and bottom jaw.
Then split vertically where you want the bottom jaw to pivot.
You might want to place a temporary roof/slab/wall to get the cutting plane easily.

Now I would rotate the bottom jaw down.
Now the hard bit will be adding surfaces to join up the gaps.
Then union all the pieces back into one morph.

Add slabs,beams to form the passage you need and then SEO that from the morph.

I am sure it is much easier said than done.

I would mould it in clay in the way i want it and then i would make an 3D-Scan. (or let mould it by an artist i trust and 3D-Scan it.) This is artwork - nor architectural work.
