Hi,

I'm new to SubD modeling and would appreciate advice on how to learn it quickly.

Is there a place online where SubD tutorial videos are all listed?

Any other tips would be appreciated since I need to come up to speed soon.

Thanks!

First you have in the HELP-menue a Manual und Tutorials.

Then perhaps you can try this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wFNrl6s1Is and a lot of other videos on YT.

But the best of all is Tim Olson's book "Tips, Tutorials, Techniques"

I am trying to simply replicate Tim's spoon but when I attempt to pull the middle facet for the handle, it is pulling adjacent facets as well. I have tried everything I can find to isolate the single facet. Any help would be appreciated.

He mentions "scale copy" to create multiple facets on that pulling operation, how was that done?

First deep select the facet (it looks like you're already doing that), activate the gripper, and then pull the gripper arrow while simultaneously holding the Option key (Mac).

Option key was KEY. Thanks! I missed that in the video. Would I have gotten that from Tim's book?

You're welcome.

I don't know. I don't have the book.
