Modeling a Mech -Vergos 10

Now you have a completed boot and leg. Mirror the leg models over across the mid-line of the torso. In Figure.26, you see the mid-line.


In Figure.27, you see the Vergos 10 Dig Grappler at this point in the project.


Shoulders and Arms

The shoulders and arms are next. We will use a few different methods of modeling on these parts. First we will work on the shoulders. We will model the shoulders by using a 2 rail sweep. In Figure.28 you will see three splines separated by color.


One of the is a closed spline, and two of them are open splines. The two open splines are the rail curves. Once these curves are drawn you will need to access the 2-rail sweep tool by using the Sweep2 command.
Press Enter then select the 2 rail curves as it asks you to. Then select the closed spline and press Enter. This should bring up a dialog box as seen in Figure.29. This figure also shows the model that is produced.
