Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video Model the floor base, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- [Instructor] So continuing on,…building the side table here,…we're actually going to start working on our tripod base.…You'll also notice that I have gone ahead…and put in our middle, kind of leg support.…Again, that was a really basic shape…that started as a cylinder and just adding…the extra edge loops with bevels…to actually build this kind of shape…that it had on there.…It's just a revolved surface for that,…so that when we hit three you can see…we get those nice kind of edges…and leveled highlights that we're looking for…in all of our high resolution models.…
So, didn't feel that I needed to…kind of show you step-by-step how to build that shape.…But this tripod shape here is a little bit…of a different challenge and really…it's what kind of Maya primitive…can help create a three-sided object…that's got these flat end pieces here.…So we're actually going to start by using…the new circle disc, the polygon disc option in Maya.…So we're going to start with one of those…and go over to the inputs for this and drop down.…
