Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Sweep lines, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
In this video we'll be looking at the sweep modifier, which extrudes a …cross-section shape along an underlining spline to make a new 3D object. …This is a simple way to create 3D objects from your 2D shapes. …Here in our scene we have a rectangle, just a simple rectangle. …And then in the modify panel I am going to add from the modifier list the …sweep modifier. Now initially, when we add it it's going …to apply by default a shape called an angle.…
These are pre-made cross-sections that we can choose a variety. …This is a bar, and I can show you many of them. …Some of the ones that I particularly like are half round, and quarter round, which …are the shapes that you would use if you were making a molding for the floor of an interior.…
This is called a wide flange, and it's kind of like an I shape. …And you can see here, it gives you a cross section of what each look like. …Now, along with being able to choose the built-in cross-sections, you can also …create your own. I've created one here, this little guy. …
