In this video we'll be creating the bell of an old fashioned alarm clock using a …cylinder with an Edit Poly Modifier and a Mesh Smooth Modifier. …This will help us get the feel of the modifier work flow in edit poly modeling. …Let's start in the Create panel by creating a cylinder of any size. …Move to your Modify panel and in the parameters change the radius to four, the …height to two, the height segments to one.…
Cap segments to two and sides to eight. This will give us a very low-poly …primitive as our base object. The Mesh Smooth Modifier will subdivide …all these polygons to give us a higher poly result. …In the Modifier panel, there's the modifier stack, which shows our base …model of a cylinder. Above that is the modifier list. …In that list, we can choose Edit Poly Modifier.…
Another place that we can add our modifier is in the Graphite Modelling tool. …Go under Polygon Modelling and apply Edit Poly Mod, short for modifier. …In the modifier stack, you can see the Edit Poly Modifier has been added above …
