New Tutorial - Poly Plane Modeling
We just released a new tutorial; "Modeling Workflow - Poly Plane Techniques" in which Rick shows you how to create a very accurate model of a WWII jerry can with a fully functional cap assembly. It's a great hard surface modeling tutorial and goes over how to create geometry based on poly plane extrusions and get realistic edge bevels in CG amongst many other things.

The tutorial can be found here
