Duration: 6 Days


Discover 3D Hard Surface modeling with Autodesk® Maya® Discover what it
takes to create computer-generated characters for Movies, Architectural, Games
Automotive And Product Design. Master the basics of modeling, texturing, lighting
and rendering for Creative production.

Learning outcomes

• Build a superior understanding of Hardsurface modeling using advanced
techniques for topology control.
• Model a complex hard surface object with the pipeline
• Gain a greater understanding of UV mapping
and UV unwrapping techniques for complex objects.
• Apply textures to hardsurface models.
• Learn the process to convert the 3D model on a flat surface to be textured in
Photoshop and then be converted back to 3D.

Course contents

Intro to Maya

• Maya interface: the view window, tools,
buttons, and timeline.
• Customize view, zoom in and out, and
to navigate between different artwork
displays through key commands and
• Create and adjust primitives to create
basic 3D models, and using the Transform
tools to move, rotate, and scale them in
three dimensions.
• Organize your artwork, group and parent
objects and pivot them.

Basic Poly Modeling in Maya

• Manipulating the shape of an object
to begin creating realistic or complicated
• Select components and edit them,
rotating, scaling, and transforming the
elements in the model.
• Delete, extrude, poke, or cut to add details
to the objects. Booleans to overlap objects
to merge or extrude new shapes.
• Duplicate or flip components and a focus
on how to use object history to keep track
of the complexity of the model.

Hard Surface Modeling

• turn your complex polygons into smooth,
polished models.
• split polygons by creating new vertices
and faces and draw new polygons
• use normals to create gradients and
bevels to smoothen edges.

Shading, Texturing and UV Mapping

• control their color, shininess,
transparency, and reflectivity
• add an image map and manipulate its
• create and apply UV maps of your
models, cutting and sewing them, and
folding and unfolding UVs
• work in Photoshop to produce texture
images to apply to your maps

Lighting & Rendering

• set up a basic light rig including a
directional light, spotlight, key light, and
point light, and render it from different
camera views.
