Tutorial: Modeling an concept aircraft


Lech Sokolowski posted at CGArena a cool concept aircraft modeling tutorial. Through a text and image approach Lech starts with blocking out the proportions and goes into finer details doing some good hard surface SSD modeling. Enjoy



  1. Paraphrasing the tutorial:

    To select part of the geometry (in this case to separate it from the rest of the mesh):
    - select delimiting edge loop and hide it (alt+rightclick, H)
    - select geometry you want to separate (aim and press L)
    - made sure nothing else is connected (press A a couple of times)
    - unhide (alt+H)

    The geometry you want to separate is now selected (you can now just press P).

    That's a pretty cool trick!

  2. (sorry for the double post, but I forgot I wasn't signed-in and now I can't edit)

    Note there is no real point in hiding the whole geometry before unhiding. The trick is purely based on the hiding of the edge loop so you can select the rest of the geometry with L.
    This may have been a well-known trick for some, but it sure wasn't for me.

  3. Technology is blinding....the link is just there in front of you ..its just doesn't click..

    Time to use our wild instincts.......................................

  4. Welcome to WordPress - I changed the link few times and it never got replaced.
    I needed to erase most of it and retype a different text to be able to update the URL.

    It is fixed now.
