Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling tools: NURBS, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- [Instructor] The next tool we're going to show you…is actually going to be a NURBS tool…for creating shapes along curves.…So I have a NURBS circle and a curve drawn out by hand here…in a spiral shape.…I want to create a circular shape…that is extruded along this particular spiral curve.…I'll start by selecting the circle first…then shift-selecting the curve,…go to "surfaces", "extrude",…and just open up the dialogue box to start with.…
I typically don't change these options,…I'll change them after the fact,…once the shape has been created.…So, we're going to hit "apply", and we'll see a shape…of a circular surface being extruded along the entire curve.…Now, the nice part about this,…is that we can come into the original curve…and make changes to it live…to the shape that's being created.…The last is revolve.…Let me hide this particular shape here.…
And what we have here is a curve…that is actually created to look similar to a vase.…And what I would like to do…is just wrap this particular shape around itself…to create a shape.…
