At the moment I am laying the foundations for a new project on local anaesthetics used in dentistry.
This is my second or third time* modelling a tool in Maya; I think I am getting to grips with it after modelling the coupland elevator (see right). I think the coupland was a good first thing to attempt to model as it was pretty difficult for a first-timer, I had many hissy fits at my computer. It did however allow me me to really develop the skills I needed to do further models of dental tools.
*I still haven't completely finished the dental forceps I have been working on so that one does not count yet!
The first thing to do is construct all the different aspects of the syringe.
I have spent two days on the model so far - much quicker than my last model. I see progress.
In the end it should all be assembled like this...
So here is my progress so far:
Day One (Above) : The Handle
Day Two (Above) : The Cartridge
Hopefully I will be able to upload a lovely final render when it is all assembled soon.
