- Okay, so in this video I'm going to show you…how to create the hexagonal head.…Now, this is a catalog part that exists in the database…and you will probably never have to surface this.…But just as a good exercise,…we're going to run through a quick workflow…on how to create this.…So this is a representation of the steps…that I'm going to do.…And you can start at any point during this process.…So the first thing to do…is to go into a Primative mode, Cylinder.…Five Spans, zero Caps.…And let's just put that right here like so.…
Next thing to do is to create a flange surface.…And we're going to go normal this time,…because we're using the edge of a surface.…And let's just dial that back to something like this.…And now we're just going to create…some very simple entities.…Let's just go with a one, control-alt.…And on this one I can just use control to snap to the ends.…
Just delete that flange, we don't need that anymore.…And we're going to now just draft…a very simple surface down.…And the Z-direction,…you can pick each individual one like this.…
