Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Using isoparms to refine NURBS surfaces, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Now let's start refining our NURBS models.…We're going to start with editing and refining NURBS surfaces.…So up until this point, we've seen how to reshape surfaces.…But what if you wanted to add…detail, cut surfaces apart or attach surfaces together?…Well, let me show you how to do some of this.…Let's just go ahead and start with a simple NURBS sphere.…I'm just going to drag out a default sphere.…On to my workspace here, and bring it above the grid so we can see it.…Now we've seen before that if we right-click over this we can go into…control vertex mode and I can select CV's or control vertices and I can…edit my model and I can reshape it, but there is always going to…be the need to add additional detail, to cut models in half, or to.…Connect models together and so lets take a look at how to do those.…Most of this revolves around a concept called an isoparm.…
So when I select an isoparm from the context menu here, from…the marking menu, you'll see that when I left click on this.…I get this ring and that's basically just going to be a point of action, so if I…
