Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Using NURBS Revolve , part of Maya Essentials 3: NURBS Modeling Techniques.
Once you understand how to create and manipulate NURBS curves, you can start…using those to actually create NURBS surfaces.…So let's take a look at some of the various ways we can use curves to create surfaces.…The first tool we're going to look at is NURBS Revolve.…We're going to use this to create part of this submarine,…but before we do that, let's just take a look at the tool by itself.…So I'm going to actually hide these two layers of the submarine--so I'm in my…Channel Box under layers, so I'm just hitting these two buttons here.…
And let's go ahead and create a curve and revolve it.…So I'm going to go into, let's say a front viewport here and let's create a surface here.…So I'm going to create a CV curve.…Now, before I actually create the curve, I'm going to turn on Snap to grids.…That way I can make sure that I'm snapping to the exact centerline of this scene.…So I'm going to go ahead and turn on Snap to grid, so then I'm just going to go…ahead and create a curve.…
So I'm going to start in the middle here and then I'm actually going to go…
