Grant Warwick - hard surface fundamentals re-packaged
show user profile  Davious
Heres a link to a compiled and re-vamped hard surface modeling tutorial by Grant Warwick.
Really useful to beginners and any of us less than noobs.


Makes most of his stuff from planes, and has lots of useful tips.
In my humble, very cool stuff :)

Thanks for sharing,

I made it to part 7. Gonna get some sleep and continue watching it tomorrow

Edit: I enjoy how he talks about his hot-keys but still uses the good old click and drag method for selecting rings of edges :)

found a good interview with him, he's depressingly good for his age!

I went through the first version of his tutorials some months ago. Great stuff.
It's from one of them that I got the idea for the 'loop regularizer' script.

cool stuff. I have a question though. What is he doing when he selects two verts and connects the two verts with a hotkey? What is that called and what is the hotkey? That would save me a shit ton of time..

Also, what is the hotkey to switch between Msmooth and EP? Did he say atilde?

Thanks.. Great post Davious!

Nice vid! Picked up a couple small things.. like holding CTRL while removing an edge also removes verts associated with that edge, sweet!

9krausec, He is connecting the verts using connect. And he is turning nurms subdivision on and off and has it assigned to tilde (SHIFT+`). You can assign custom hotkeys by going to Cutomize > Customize User Interface.

yes krausec,

as nemac says, he has assigned his own hotkeys. I have them set up very close to what he has done, although I could never get the tilda key to hotkey so I use '\' to show end result.

heres a ic of the hotheys he uses

EDIT : also heres a good walk thru of the 'Hadron' model design. I love this guy !
