Today was our first class on lathing, but first we had to learn about splines. Our previous two classes focused on box modeling which involves manipulating vertices and polygons to achieve the shape you wish. With splines you can simply draw the object in 2s and extrude/lathe etc to form a 3d object which you can then manipulate like a box model.
So first I started by drawing out the basic line for a glass.
Next week we will be covering mapping and materials so I can finally add textures to my models, we will also hopefully be covering lofting which I’m not entirely sure what it does, but from what I’ve read it adds detail to lathed objects.
