In this lesson we'll be using an edible poly and NURMS to create the bell of an …old fashion alarm clock to get the feel for the workflow when using NURMS. …This is an image of the alarm clock and that's the bell that we are going to create. …In the Create panel, on the right of the interface, we're going to go to Geometry …> Cylinder. Click and drag in your perspective …viewport to create the cylinder. Don't worry about what size it is.…
Then move to your Modify panel. Change the radius to a radius of four, …the height to a height of two, your height segments change to one, cap …segments to two and sides to eight. With NURMS the base model or perimative …can be a very low poly object. In the graphite modeling tools in the …Poly Modeling tab we're going to click Convert to Poly.…
I'm going to start by clicking on NURMS in the edit tab. …You can see that NURMS has smoothed the surface. …It doesn't look quite like our bell, but you can see it's got this rounded look. …We're going to do a couple of things to help it along. …
