Steampunk Sword – 3DS Max modeling tutorial

76. Use the line tool to create more cables/hoses. If you need help, use our forum :

77. Let’s move forward and make the blade. Normally you should have a hidden “Box”. Unhide it and delete the bottom polygon, then place it in the same position :

78. Grab the top vertices of the box and drag them to the same place like a did :

79. Select the top polygon, then use “Extrude” to push him upward and weld the vertices to achieve the same result as me :

80. Add new rows and follow the shape of the blade :

    A very detailed tutorial indeed… thank you!

    I had forgotten the basic skills I used to have many years ago and this tutorial polished my memory! 😀

    I would like if you could also tell the hotkeys you are using when you explain the modelling.

    Cheers!

    Man! Your turorial is very nice!!

    Help me in one thing:
    50. Add some thickness… how!?

    Thx!

    • Thank you, I am glad that you like my tutorials :)

      if you have made that object using the line tool, check the modifier menu of the line.

      You need to find the “Rendering” menu (by default is the first one). Then , check these boxes :

      “Enable in Renderer”
      “Enable in Viewport”

      then modify the value in the “Thickness” box

        Sorry about my questions, but I’m a beginner…

        How can I make my presure gauge so rounded like in the image 75C ?

        My presure gauge is the same in the image 75B…

        Thank u!

        • Select the pressure gauge > go to the modifier list > choose meshsmooth or turbosmooth (I’m always using meshsmooth) and at Iterations you can adjust the smoothness. We also have a forum. Next time, please use it :) .

            “The visual confirmation code you submitted was incorrect”

            But I’m writing correct… I don’t know what’s happening…

            Thank you for the help! =)

    I realize this might be a bit late, but i am a beginner, and i was wondering how to do some of step 41. Specifically after the 2nd picture.

  • Hypertje

    Great tutorial so far, but what are you doing in 25, I am at the last image. So far it went great, but your outcome is completely different. Any further help possible?
