Bending in Maya

Alec helped me to add a bend to the tunnel in our team’s enviroment project.

Using what I learned from him, I was able to create another bend in the floor plane so that it followed along the tunnel’s bend.

Screen shot below shows environment and the bend in tunnel.


How to create a bend

In the Modelling Tab, select the faces that you want to bend (have divisions). Go to the Deform menu

  • Nonelinear
    • Bend

In the Attribute editor

  • nonelinear Deformer Attributes
    • Curvature

Video below, made by me, shows a quick demonstration.
