3D Animation - Maya Surface Eggcup

This is an eggcup I made using Maya software, this particular design was made using surface curves. I found this method to be quite interesting, it certainly opened up a few potential opportunities for model making. This technique could be very useful to create specific models or to potentially make drawings on a 2D plane and then turn them 3D using this method.

I still need to get used to quite a few parts of the software but the tutorials have been immensely helpful in getting me used to the Maya controls. This tutorial in particular for basic model making.


  1. Hi there,

    It's really important that first years a) follow the group blog as a matter of habit and b) follow the blogs of year 2 and year 3 students, because we know that, by doing so, year 1 students develop more quickly and get more organised. You might have done all this already, but I know there are those who have not, and I'm keen to get everyone up to speed.

    If you haven't done so already, you need to add these to your Blogger reading list, by clicking on the 'ADD' button on your dashboard, pasting in the URLs and then 'following pubically'.

    Group Blog (You must be following this/checking this feed daily at least).

  3. Hi Max well done with making a start with the tutorials, but I am rather concerned that you are already starting to fall a little behind. If you give it a big push you can still catch up and you will find that you will also gain confidence.
