For self directed this semester, I am learning how to model in Maya using nurbs. I looked at a couple of tutorials that showed how to use the basic nurb curve tools. The tutorials went over how to use the arc tools, CV curve tool, EP curve tool and the pencil curve tool. Before I didn’t know that what some of these tools did and I find them useful, like the pencil curve tool. I also learned that if you edit points of a EV curve, the object created using the EV curve shape will be changed which I thought was interesting. In the images are a glass I created using the EP curve tool and and object created from lofting three EP curves.
