The Razorback – Part 16: Refining the Upper Robotic Arm

In this installment of the Razorback screencast, we kick things off by reconstructing the upper robotic arm of the machine. There’s a bit of modeling, and some new techniques in store for you.

Covered in this video:

  • Cleaning up the proxy object; we use the Bridge tool and two well placed cylinders to start the new geometry for the upper arm.
  • We then cover the rounding of the cylindrical parts, while preserving the circular profile of the pivots.
  • The remainder of the video is spent cleaning up the geometry.
This video is a great example of some simple modeling, that then takes a while to clean up. Sometimes the simplest geometry can take a lot of time to get just right.
