The traditional way of creating complex forms using a series of sketches to develop lofts and sweeps is inherently restrictive to the creative process. Learn about starting the Create form tool. It will change your workspace to the Sculpt workspace, which will update your toolbars, but it will also give you a warning dialogue.
- [Instructor] The traditional way of creating complex forms … by using a series of sketches to develop Lofts, … and to try and build a lot of features at one time … is inherently restrictive to the creative process. … In this video, we'll start to develop a free form design. … We'll be using T splines technology … to develop the basic shape … that will be built upon and eventually become a solid model. … We'll begin the process by creating a form. … By selecting create form, … you are shelled into the freeform modelling environment. … A lot of the tools will have the same name … such as extrude, and loft and sweep. … But you'll also see there are primitives … that can be built from. … Let's start out with a box primitive. … We'll select the plane that we want to build a primitive on … and I'll select the centre point. … We'll rough in the approximate size … We're looking for something … roughly 100 millimetres by 120 millimetres wide. … Again, high precision isn't really the goal here, …
