extrude face along a CV curve. The one in the middle is a bridge with a few divisions that I moved downwards a bit.

Here's the wireframes:

And here's approximately the angle I'm going for:
http://img167.imageshack.us/img167/3699/temptj1.th.png
I moved things around a bit to get the best scene... (the door was supposed to be opened from the other side, but it won't match my environment nor the fridges frame(the angle from which it is ****ed up) )

C&C please
Benny

Default Progress

Finished the strips:
http://img67.imageshack.us/img67/8229/tempvl7.th.pnghttp://img152.imageshack.us/img152/2...2726bq0.th.jpg

Had to overcome a little problem with rotation of densely grouped objects to get here...
Speaking of groups, I have a question:
Is there a way to add/remove an object to/from a group without creating a new group?

and another question: how should I approach the modeling of the wires? (See pic above, on the shelf)

C&C and help will be much appreciated

Thanks Chirone... MMB just saved me about 10 minutes .
I'm currently redoing the strips from the last post because Maya crashed last time and I've just noticed my progress wasn't saved which is very weird because I was sure I saved it :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

Still need help with the wires though (my last post)...

I thought it would have been quite tricky but it went out well...
Is it just me or the site experienced quite a downtime yesterday? I worked on my model a bit, finished the strips(again) and wires but I had nowhere to post it...
Well, here it is:

There's something I feel I forgot to mention...

Oo, right... I'M 16 :attn:

damn you young ones! if only i knew about this stuff back in the old days

nah, it wasn't just you, simply maya was down for a long long time...
i thought it was just me, but all the other webpages were working, and simply maya wasn't working on both uni and internet cafe computers.

then my friend pointed me to http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com which told me it was down for everyone

OK, I'm done for today.
A few last tweaks, dents and bends I did:
http://img255.imageshack.us/img255/3089/tempxz6.th.png
And a ref for the dents (and the metal strip, I believe I haven't shown this one):

I'm going to celebrate my 16th birthday :attn:
afterward I'm going to start laying UVs.
