Does anyone know of any tutorials on how to model an iPod? Preferably the big line of iPods. I'm supposed to build one for a project, but I don't own one and have no idea where to even begin with it.

Any help is greatly appreciated,
Brandon.

That is a very good model. Now tell me...your screen and click wheel are seperate shaders right? I wanted to make the iPod out of nurbs, but have no idea as to how to make a circular isoparm to indent for the click wheel.

yes the screen and click wheel are seperate shaders and seperate objects , I dont use nurbs at all so cant help you there , I made my ipod using Max 8 with ploys and used mentalRay for the rendering.
