Join Veejay Gahir for an in-depth discussion in this video Create a solid, part of Modeling an F1 Wheel in Maya.
…In this video I'm going to take this handle base.…We're going to create a solid from it.…And we're also going to add some bevels.…So in chapter four, let's open up file 04-03 handle solid.…And let's go into our perspective view.…Let's change this color again to a lambert.…Slate and let's to the extrude command under…the F1 shelf which is this icon here.…Let's extrude it down…and Enter.…So now we're going to put some more splits right down the middle…with the insert edge loop tool we're going to put one right down here.…I'm going to put one right down here.…
Out of those two.…Remember we do have the option, unless I just want to eyeball exactly the middle.…Double click, using multiple edges and then just saying…1 and can click here and click here, like that.…And then this just reset the tool.…So those splits go right the way through the pop, they…do stop at the end gone, and that's typical of Maya.…So now we're going to go to the interactive tool, and…let's just finish that off.…We'll say, yes.…We'll say yes to that, and we'll go right the way through this part as well,…
