View Full Version : [noobish]how to make a gun

04 April 2005, 08:36 PM
yesterday i started making a gun in 3dsmax with box modelling, but i couldnt get very much detail in it, and i dont really know how to do the smoothing groups properly (as you can see, its way too smooth), can somebody please explain how to build a gun proper (this is an easy model, but in a desert eagle or a m4 is much more detail).

First of all smoothing an unfinished model doens't make it look any better, since you will be adjusting much much more.

By the looks of your model I recon you could learn much much more on the modelling part, so I'd suggest you pick up tutorials and learn any modelling possible. <--- on this site there is a good movie tutorial on modelling a beretta starting from just a simple plane. Or just check out the tutorials section in the Modelling forum.

Good luck.


P.S.: Ik ben zelf ook nog maar een beginner (althans ik model nu al ruim 3 jaar als amateur) en ik moet zeggen dat het goed kunnen modellen niet in een paar weken te leren valt. Dus veel, heel veel oefenen! :)
