Today in class we started to do basic 3D models in Maya. Maya is a 3D software where you can create models by using the 3D modding type called ‘NURBS’ which means Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines. In 3D modelling each 3D shapes has vertexes, faces and edges. In class we made a basic spaceship model:

Next time I will try not to make triangles from a cube. These are called ngon which is not recommended to do.


I made this by one cube which I changed by the original size of it then added extrusions to expand the model shape to get the cone top and the wings pieces at the bottom.
