Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Reusing parts to make a round table, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
In games, you want to reuse elements wherever possible, and what that means also…is reusing texture space and things you have already modeled.…We have got here what will be one complete chair and another round chair and then…a rectangular trestle table.…What I'd like to do is take this table and clone it, reuse most of it to make a…roundtable I can use in maybe either a similar restaurant, or may be an…entirely different building that's in the same style.…Those share a texture sheet, and with some careful modeling I can reuse most of the elements.…
What I'll do is I'll start out by taking my existing table, duplicating it by…pressing Ctrl+D, and moving the duplicate over to this side.…I'll hide the unselected objects, and then I'll go to work on the top.…I could probably take this and shape it and round that top, but I think what I'd…like to do is make a new top and boards. Off to this side here, I'll make a cylinder.…I'm going to say it's a pretty big table.…I'll give this Poly Cylinder a Radius of 30, and I'll let the Height be 2, so…
