Hello everyone!

Welcome to Quickstart to Maya tutorial series.

In this free tutorial series, I wanted to cover a very basics of 3D modeling in Maya. We are going to focus only on very essential tools to get us started, so we can easily adjust to the interface, navigation and general tools.

Let´s do this!

…ouh and little tip, all videos as recorded in 2k resolution so feel free to fullscreen the videos.

To install the interface, you will need to replace the 2018 folder in Documents – maya folder.

Here is the list of hotkeys I used in the videos.

Move E
Rotate R
Scale T
Subdivision On 3
Subdvision Off 1

Bevel CTRL-B
Extrude CTRL-E
Multi Cut M
Insert Edge Loop I
Connect components K

Isolate/Solo Object CTRL-1
Shelf On/Off Alt-K
Delete All History Alt-T

Enable Edit Pivot D
Target Weld W
Snap to Grid X
Enable Snap Rotation J
Repeat previous action G


  1. Great tutorials! When I finish these I will definitely be buying your Maya courses. I was also wondering how to install the custom UI for Maya 2019. In Documents I don’t have a 2019 folder. Just a projects folder. Looked for info online and only saw videos for customizing your own UI.
