Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Basic modifiers: Using the Bend, Taper, and Twist modifiers, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
In this video we'll be taking a look at often used modifiers the bend, the taper, …and the twist, and how they work in the modifier stack. …I have a well-segmented box here, and I'm going to add a bend modifier to it, by …selecting it from the modifier list. You'll see the bend is in my modifier …stack and I've got Angle, which allows me to adjust how much of a bend I have, as …well as the direction. I'm going to type in an even 45 degrees …for the direction of my bend. An even angle of 90 degrees.…
Now, I'm going to add a limit to the effect. …If I turn on limit effect, you'll see that things get a little bit weird. …That's because my limits are set to 0. If I increase my upper limit, you can see …the orange gizmo, that is the bend modifier. …You can see how it is being effected by the limit. …This way I can set a limit so that the top of my box is not effected by the bend.…
Also set a lower limit, which effects how the bend works as well. …Let's keep the top square and the bend at the bottom. …
