Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the piston connector, part of Game Art: Model & UV Map a Low Poly Character.
- [Instructor] As already noted,…we are ready now…to create the last modeling piece for the chapter.…And so, let's select the last part…of the high poly reference mesh…for the piston arm,…and use the isolate command.…Follow by clicking the zoom extents all button…in order to frame up on the geometry.…Over in the create tab,…let's click to create a cylinder…and then drag that out…in the left viewport…so as to create a random radius and height.…We can then customize this…and so let's give it a radius of 1.7 centimeters,…a height of one centimeter,…height segments of one,…cap segments of two,…and then, finally,…set the sides value at 12.…
After which, we can add our modeling material…to the low poly mesh.…We can align this…to the high poly geometry…by pressing the Alt + A keys…and then by clicking on the high poly mesh itself.…Now, because of the high poly geometry's…pivot point placement,…we can set the current object…to use the center option.…And the target object…to use the pivot point option.…As the cylinder primitive…
