Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Projecting curves on surfaces, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…In addition to drawing curves on a nurb surface, you can also project them.…So, you can take a curve that's outside…the surface and project it on to the surface.…Let's look at how this applies to this space ship.…Now I added one more object to this space…ship and that's the cowl of the space ship.…But what I've done is I've basically taken a sphere and lopped…off the bottom, cut it, detached it, and then created this basic cowl.…
But I need to connect it to the surface of…the spaceship, I also need to put a window in it.…So let's go ahead and start off with the window in this cowl.…I'm going to create a curve that's going to be the shape of that window.…So I'm just going to be very simple here.…I'm just going to take a simple nurb circle and just draw…it in and then I'm going to reshape it just a bit.…So I'm going to get it kind of into a window shape.…
I'm going to right click above it to control vertex here, take these vertices…and scale them outward to square off that window just a little bit and…then go back into object mode and then select it as an object and bring it back.…
