that is a cool start for a wheel. a few suggestions though, if you dont mind:
  • the extruded faces might be better if they are not so regularly extruded
  • the edges of them might be better if you round them (e.g. smooth) a bit
  • the form of the nipples maybe not quad, but something with non 90 degree corners
and then i have a question, did you use duplicate with transform?


I-Iybrid: Polys, NURBS, or Sub-D's?
does it really matter if it is nurbs, polys or subd? it gets triangualted on the way to get rendered anyway. or do you think higher about someones result (and nothing else you look at here) if it is "only" poly (no offence anita)? convert nurbs->poly, subd->poly, poly->subd, and in 4.5 subd->nurbs does all the tricks. if you limit yourself to just one toolbox within maya you simply not use the full potential you might be able to get out of it - but that is just my 2 cents.

anita, what i meant with "duplicate with transform": model a slice of the wheel at whatever precision you like, then duplicate with transform. first time to line up the rotation, and then just repeat it (with pressing "D" in default setting) many times. after that select all the pieces, combine, merge vertices. done. one piece geometry. if you dont like history, just delete the history afterwards. it might not be effective? well, that might be true if the only thing you did was extrude face. but add more complex modelling, and i am sure you dont want to do it for each nipple seperately. then the duplicate with transform or possibly a animation snapshot abused for modeling might pay off. complicated to use or understand at first, but fast, very powerfull and efficient once you opened your mind.

and never forget: there is always at least 2 ways to do things in maya, usually even more

Cool start.

Are you going to model a vehicle to put those onto?
