Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling a pry bar, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
In this video, I'll model a pry bar to go along with the sledgehammer. …We often need to see tools and things around the game environment, whether they're there …as simply objects or we can pick them up and use them. …For the pry bar, I need to start out with some kind of six-sided piece, and it needs to have …a curve at the end. …What really happens is they start out with an extruded piece of steel, bend it, and then …smash the end flat and cut in a notch here for pulling out nails. …I'm going to treat it slightly differently, but fairly close, in that I'll start with …the curved form first, as I can make this easily and then extrude the straight piece out.…
Looking at the reference, we can see that there's an orientation of the facet. …We need to be able to grip a flat side and that will be key in how I make it. …We've got different kind of pry bars available, and this one is a straight pry bar, …not nearly as exciting as the hook one I'm going to make, but still noteworthy in how …it's worn and also where that flat side is. …
