Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the outer frame: Part 2, part of Game Asset Creation: Stylized Wooden Crate.
- Having already created the top crosspiece…for the frame of our crate, time to move on…to creating the uprights, whilst at the same time…touching on a toolset that could really help speed us up…on any hard-surface modeling project,…namely the snapping options.…Now of course, to create our uprights,…we could start the entire creation process again…by making a new box.…But seeing as we already have what,…from a modeling perspective, is an identitical…parametrically-modeled piece, already in place,…there simply is no need.…
And of course, reusing this mesh will have added benefits…when it comes time to unwrap our geometry…later on in the course.…Let's select our original box mesh then,…and press the Alt plus W keys in order to jump…to a full-screen view, and then hit the W key…to engage the Move tool.…Whilst holding down the Shift key now,…we can click and drag to create a copy of our mesh,…naming it Crate_Side.…
Do be careful here not to select the Instance option,…as we are going to be making some unique changes…
