How to Model a Complex Twisted Ring With Holes in Maya

Talal Ur Rehman, the person behind the AboutOneMinuteTutorials on Youtube shows how you can use some clever techniques along with MASH in Maya to model a complex shape. The example shows you how to create a neat-looking twisted ring that incorporates some holes.

The run-through is a good example of how you can use Maya’s motion graphics toolkit MASH to assist with some modeling tasks. In this case, Talal uses MASH to place and replicate a strategically made component, into a long tube. Then it’s just a matter of deforming the tube shape into a torus.

AboutOneMinuteTutorials often shows some really clever techniques in Maya, and keeps most the videos just around a minute. Everyone has a minute!
