A real world model
Modelling an ashtray
To model a small man-made object, that can be carried around. To work with the program and explore possibilities while working on a specific task. We should also consider lights and materials if time allows.
The modeling went very smoothly. It turned out to be quite straight forward to model the ‘ashtray’. If you read the analysis below, you will get a full understanding of how I managed to do it. All of my thoughts prior to modelling turned out to be right – luckily.
Afterwords I worked with the material – galvanized zinc. That was a bit trickier, and I never really got it to be the exact way I wanted. The same with the lights.
All in all, a fine little exercise that has taught me a lot about Maya.
