Simple Rules to Model a Screw With Great Topology

David Mattock shows how to model a screw using some timeless techniques.

Perhaps without even realizing it, there are quite a few exercises to build modeling skills that have almost become standard. One of those subjects is the trusty screw. IT offers a range of challenges and hurdles to leap, especially when considering clean topology.

This new tutorial from David Mattock has some simple rules you can follow to create a screw using a cylinder and a spiral helix.

Mattock posts quite a bit of animation-related stuff. His last series dove into rigging using the auto-rigging tool Advanced Skeleton.
