9.0 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

10.0 / 10
This course was last updated on 3/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

We analyzed factors such as the rating (0.0/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

7.5 / 10
Video Score: 8.1 / 10
The course includes 3h 45m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.

Description

To participate in this course you should download a functional version of Maya. There is a student version as well as a version for a trial period. In the first tutorial we’ll get used to the basic navigation shortcuts in Maya. We’ll also create a NURBS torus and render it. The next tutorials let you create surfaces from curves. This unfolds the aesthetics and elegance of NURBS modeling. Each lesson ends with a homework for you. In the following lesson, I’ll explain my way to solve that task. At the end of this course you’ll not be a beginner, you’ll be an expert. And maybe you feel inspired to use other elements of Maya. It’s one of the most complex and most rich pieces of software ever programmed.
A few details of the course: Maya has an object and a component mode. In the object mode you create and modify curves and surfaces. The component mode lets you dive into the details of such curves and surfaces. In 3D modeling it’s often those details which make a product design succeed or fail. Miniature changes can have a huge impact. A little dose of deformation using for example Maya’s Sculpt Deformer makes your geometry less symmetrical and maybe more inspiring. We’ll create a bath tub from just 3 curves – and we find out that two more curves do a much better job, but 10 curves are just too much. The internet lets you download all kinds of 3D objects, most of which come in a polygon format. This course tells you how to deal with poly “meshes” as a NURBS enthusiast. And of course, lighting and rendering is always crucial for visualization: You can model the most elegant car fender; if you don’t light and render it, you’re client will send it back.

Requirements

• You should download the free and fully functional Student Version of Autodesk Maya. The Trial Version is good for a shorter time period.

You will learn

✓ 3D modeling using the elegance and power of NURBS, mainly for industrial design
✓ Example: A bathtub made from 3 “Birail” curves; a pair of glasses with two NURBS “Fillets”.

This course is for

3D Tutor, Journalist, Musician, Wikipedian
I work as a journalist for National Public Radio in Germany. I’ve done the first 3D computer animations for german children TV. I taught computer animation at two universities (Ludwigsburg and Aachen) and in the early 2000s wrote a couple of books on computer animation using Maya. In 2017 I launched a tutorial channel on Youtube which focusses on all aspects of Maya. Particles, Character Animation, Programming. The demand for an in depth modeling course grew. Since I consider myself an expert in NURBS and not in polygon modeling, I started creating this course.
