Mkdo measurements of the mug are 90cm wide by cm tall. Now to make the selection. To make the selection we need, first drop any existing selection first by pressing ‘Esc’. Holding the ‘Ctrl’ key when adjusting any of the handles will again constrain all values to be the same.

Solene Chan-Lam — Lead Texture Artist, MPC Foundry cover all aspects of production with a user friendly approach that allows the artist to focus on the creativity and ease any technical issues encountered. We want to select the entire bottom edge of the cylinder, modo has shortcuts to simplify these kinds of actions. This action does two things, first it obviously places the geometry into the scene, the less obvious action is the tool is now in interactive mode; basically meaning that while the tool is still active users can use any of the available handles to modify the cylinder, as well as edit property values and see the shape update in real-time in the viewport.

In order to know what particular element is being selected, modo has a function called pre-highlighting; when the mouse hovers over a particular element, its color will change indicating it is a selectable element.

Since we only want to affect certain edges, we’ll need to make a selection, but it will actually be a little difficult to get inside the cup to accurately select the edges necessary, so modo has way to indirectly make the selection we want. Discover why leading artists choose Modo for creating real-time content in games and VR, iterating on product design concepts, and bringing bold ideas to life.


The last operation is to apply Subdivision Surfaces smoothing to the model by pressing the ‘Tab’ key. Since the Bevel specifies the inset as a measurement, it was easier to keep the inside consistent to the outer rim by giving it the same scale value. MutantPixel January 27, at 3: Learning packages Get the most out of your day trial with our accessible tutorials and educational resources.

The ‘Soft Move’ tool requires two actions before it will deform the model properly. MutantPixel December 9, at 3: You might be wondering why the inset of the bevel wasn’t used and instead replaced with a ‘Scale’. Creative 3D modeling, texturing and rendering tools.

Lets go over the interactive handles, at the center of the cylinder is three arrows, for moving the position of cylinder, colored to correspond to the axis they move on, then there are small plus or star shaped handles for adjusting radius values individually. In order to introduce new users to the modo, we’re including a simple step-by-step tutorial walk through for modeling and rendering a coffee mug; simple enough to go through the various steps in detail so users can better understand modo’s powerful tool set and unique workflow.

Introducing Modo 12 Series The Modo 12 Series delivers enhanced model-bashing tools and workflows, a VR viewport embedded in the UI, iterative design workflows, and improved animation capabilities. It takes about one minute to model that cup in Solidworks, and I’ve spent 3 hours trying to figure out while the supposed simple function of scale just does not work?

Making sure you’re still in ‘Polygons’ selection mode select two adjoining polygon faces of the top rim. The ‘Polygon Bevel’ tool is found in the ‘Polygons’ subtab of the toolbox. Since they both have identical numbers of outside edges, it will match up very nicely. The model should then look like the following. Having some trouble adding the bevel to the mug after selecting the top loop and inner and outer base circles.

Hold down ‘Shift’ to add to the existing polygon selection, so just the ends of both nubs are now selected. I will make the adjustments as needed, sorry for any confusion they may have caused. If not, it is recommended users read up on the interface page of the documentation to get an idea where the various panels are located. This is done by way luxoology the middle mouse button MMB. I agree that simple shapes are easier and faster with solidworks, but when you have more organic shapes, mesh editing is the way to go.


Users can apply a Falloff manually, but for the sake of simplicity here, we’ll be using a tool that employs a falloff natively.

These define where the operation originates from, i. Calamari December 27, at 5: With Modo, every job you do becomes easier, as you continually develop new efficiencies. Users can freely tumble and zoom viewports, even when tools are active, subsequent movement of the Work Plane will not adversely affect the geometry.

It’s possible to make the selection we want in the ‘Perspective’ view, but it will be a little bit easier to see the results we want in one of the Orthographic views; this means there will be no perspective, giving us a luxoloyy look at a single side of the mug.

Am I missing something?

That will give us nice rounded edges, just like in the original mug image. The Modo 12 Series delivers enhanced model-bashing tools and workflows, a VR viewport embedded in the UI, iterative design workflows, and improved animation capabilities. MutantPixel January 28, at So lets do that. This is done through the application of a selection. Get started with Modo Try Modo free for 30 days and realize your full creative potential.

First we’ll need to make the selection for our outer surface luxologg apply the slice to, so again select two adjoining polygon faces, this time on the side of the mug and press ‘L’ to select the loop.
