Default Free Friday Tutorial #1: MEL Scripts and Modeling, Making a Golf Ball with GeoSphere

Simply Maya - MEL Scripts and Modeling, Making a Golf Ball with GeoSphere on Vimeo

In this tutorial we show you how to model a golf ball in Maya with the GeoSphere script and how it will create a better result than using Maya’s platonic solids and smoothing an icosaderon. You’ll learn how to use MEL scripts in Maya, what the five platonic solids are, as well as some modeling basics like chamfer vertices, subdividing edges, offsetting extruded faces and smoothing geometry.

The GeoSphere script used in this tutorial is free to download and can be found here;
