Using extrudes and modifiers with spline-generated models is a good way to maximize the effectiveness of using splines in our modeling pipeline. We do not need to use a single approach and stick with it till the model is complete; mixing and matching different modellng approaches can really help in a project.
- What we want to do in this exercise…is create the intersection of the breast plate…that we've been working on.…Now in order to do this, we're going to make use of what…I'm going to call more traditional CG modeling techniques.…Such as pushing and pulling around the vertices of our model…by means of Max's transformation tools.…As well, of course as making use of a generous helping…of extrudes and connects.…Before we go any further, let's quickly maximize…our Perspective View here and then…after selecting the geometry that we created…in the previous exercise, right click and convert over…to using an Editable Poly Object.…
In Polygon Sub-Object mode,…let's hit F4 to show Edged Faces.…And then after selecting one of the polygons…on the underlying surface, hold down the shift key…as we click to select another.…Which as you can see,…goes ahead and selects this entire loop of polygons.…What we want to do then is hit delete…in order to clear them out.…Coming over to the Command Panel, let's select Border mode.…Select the inner border of our object…
