Maya 2015 create cube or any surface question
on Apr 4, 2015 at 12:23:43 pm

Hello,
Im relatively new to maya and this forum. Have maya for one week, but now have got one problem. I was experimenting with maya windows a bit and then restored settings in window -> settings/preferences -> preferences -> edit -> restore default settings. Now when i create cube or any other thing, its faces are separated objects.



Is it supposed to be like that with surfaces? It works normal with polygon cube.

Hi Dominik,

I never use Nurbs surfaces, so I had to check Maya myself; yes, Nurbs Cubes are always separate objects, all in a single group (same with Nurbs Squares.)
I'm sure Nurbs surfaces can have their uses these days, but I would stick with Polygons.

Kill me again; I dare you!

Thanks George,
I thought i messed something up. Yeah I'm gonna stick with polygons cause there's no reason for using NURBS.

There are so many reasons why we use NURBS.
Im not going into details with this other than please try and learn some of it least.

It will do you good :)

Ok, I'll learn basics of surfaces. But I really don't see any point of it for now. Looked on other sites and if I'm not wrong, its like old version of displaying models, kinda slower? You create curves and from curves mesh? But why wouldn't you just use polygons and if you want it smooth, then use soft selection?

Up to you.

Just from experience that Polys isnt all there is when it comes to modeling.
