Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Complex shapes with deformers, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- [Instructor] So in this last chapter,…you've been exposed to different methods,…workflows, and tools for modeling.…Now let's see what you can do.…Your challenge is going to be to create this screw.…The challenge objectives are going to be…for you to look closely at the reference image of this screw…that I have left for you in the exercise files.…Then think about what workflow would be best to use…to create this particular complex shape.…Then you should be thinking about what method…would be best for you to start the base model.…
Would deformers help you…with the final shape creation of your model?…And in the end, you must have a polygon object.…This challenge should take you about 30 minutes…to complete depending on your experience level in Maya.…And make sure you check out the solution movie…to see how I solve this particular challenge.…Good luck.…
