Hello everyone!

In this course, we´re going to focus on hard surface workflow in Maya, and how to approach and tackle more complex designs. In this 5 hour session, you will learn how to approach a robotic 3D model design and how to deal with situations and challenges that one project of this scale could hold.

Common questions

I am beginner to 3D modeling, could I follow along this tutorial and still understand?

If you are a complete beginner, I would recommend following my Introduction to Maya tutorial first, before starting this one.

How good explained is this tutorial? Is there commentary?

Yes, there is real-time commentary, and the explanations are based around workflow, and less around operations used (Bevel, Extrude etc.)

I work in 3dsMax, Cinema 4D, Blender. Can I still follow this tutorial?

Some tools are very similar so the difference is very small. Many techniques covered here can be translated to other software. If you already have technical skills in any 3D software, you should be able to catch up, yes. However, project files that come included can be opened only with Maya.

Will I be getting final project file?

Yes, you will be able to download all project files.
