Maya Modeling :: Freeze Transforms Tool?

Dec 7, 2011

Let say I create a sphere and under Channel / Layer Editor tab, I right click on the pSphere1 and it gives me the option to Freeze my object reseting everything to 0,0,0.

I would like to have this function in my own Custom tab. But since I can't find it under anywhere in Maya menu.

Maya Modeling :: Reset Transforms Of Object Moves Geometry To Frozen Position

Oct 15, 2013

So, when I reset the transforms of an object, it moves the geometry back to the frozen position but the pivot point gets places at the world origin.
 
That can't possibly be what is supposed to happen, is it?

Maya Modeling :: How To Freeze Transformations To Local Axis

Oct 6, 2011

Take a sphere, transform it in both location and rotation. Now you want to make it's new transform and rotation zeroed out so so that it still rotates around it's local axis but all its base values are zero. If you just freeze transforms, it puts everything to zero around the world axis not the local axis. This is not what I want. I want to be zeroed around the local axis.

Maya Modeling :: Freeze Function Doesn’t Work

Dec 5, 2011

I'm trying to mirror some geometry in my Maya model of Warrior.I do this by duplication special in X axis. I get the geometry duplicated..but it is also rotated around Z axis.

I don’t want this rotation. I had this problem also before on some other geometry...but I solved it with Freeze geometry. The problem was that the geometry axis system was rotated. I think this is caused whit Mudbox because I was using also Mudbox and I rotated the geometry there.

Now the Freeze function doesn’t work. The axis system is still shifted. How I can set this axis system to the one that is set in Maya? Or duplicate it whit the Axis system set in Maya ?

Maya Modeling :: How To Fix Rotation Tool

Oct 9, 2012

I just downloaded Maya 2012. The rotation tool only rotates an object on the y axis. For some reason, when I grab the X or Z axis, it will still only rotate on the Y axis. How do I fix this?

Maya Modeling :: No Extrude Tool?

Mar 3, 2012

On an iMac on OSX ver. 10.6.8.

Going thru the Getting Started tutorial. When I started doing the "Drawing a Polygon" lesson everything was cool 'til I tried to extrude the bottom part of the helmet. I select Edit Mesh> Extrude, but the extrude arrow/handles don't show up on the polygon. I tried to Modify the Tranformation Tools, but as you can see in the screen shot, there isn't really anything to modify. Tried to reset it. Nothing. Tried to go in the Preferences, but I don't know what to set, if anything. I tried to turn of the Construction History, but I don't even see that icon. Tried to reinstall Maya. No improvement.

Maya Modeling :: Use Create Polygon Tool

Oct 12, 2011

I'm trying to use the Create Polygon tool. My problem is that when I click to create a polygon I don't see anything. I can keep clicking and clicking to create points, which it apparently IS creating, but I don't see anything until I switch through one of the View types (wire frame, shaded, etc.).

I know I'm supposed to see the verts the second I click but that's not what I'm getting, it's more like I need to just go through the motions of blindly creating my shape, change views, and then edit the resulting verts and edges later.

Maya Modeling :: Why Does Scale Tool Not Working Right

Feb 14, 2012

When I try and scale anything, I hit the hotkey R and the 3 manipulators appear. No matter what I click on, X,Y,Z,or center, when I move my mouse I get an "automatic" jump increasing the size. I can't seem to get it to do anything but these staged jumps in size. I cannot scale anything down, unless I use the universal manipulator tool. So, for example, if I want to scale a size 2 sphere to a size .8, I would have to use the universal manipulator and Shift-click on one of the matrix corners and that will allow a uniform scaling. I realize that I can always enter the scaling amount in the Channel or Attribute box field, but it may be that I'm trying to visually scale something and entering numbers isn't exactly the best way.

I've used the Trim-Tool very often, but now it's not working anymore.

Maya Modeling :: Bridge Tool Does Not Merge Edges?

Dec 27, 2011

It seems the bridge tool does not merge edges as one would expect it to. I realize that the workaround is to follow the bridge operation with a merging of the edges on either side of the bridge. Shouldn't such a common operation be done correctly?

First when I try d extrude front faces they don't stick together, even though "keep faces together" is checked [URL]........

but I click on the little round icon in the middle before extruding and they kinda stay together . When I try to insert a edge loop, it dosnt loop, but looks something like this [URL]........and when I let go of mouse button it gives some strange edges [URL].......

Maya Modeling :: Tool Similar To Max Edge Turn?

Dec 23, 2013

I know that you can spin edges (that are visible).  And I know that you can view "face triangles" (to view otherwise "invisible" edges.)But I cannot seem to select these "face triangle edges" or manipulate them.  I can create a physical edge, yes, and place it where I want, but if I remove the edge, then maya seems to revert to its own random placement for the "invisible face edge."  So, I feel like I have no control over the bend of non-planer quads. 
 
In max, when you are working with edges, there is a tool called "turn."  When selected, it reveals all hidden edges, and allows you to spin them to the angle you want.  Turn off the tool and the selected edge position remains.Can this be done in Maya?  And even if you cannot do this, is there any way to control the position of "invisible edges" in maya?  Something like a "spin quad?"

Maya Modeling :: 2D Interactive Texture Placement Tool

Jul 2, 2013

I'm tyring to use the 2d Interactive Placment Tool without success. I can see the red box, I can see the arrow cursor and when I click I see the little arrow and box, but when I use the mmb nothing happens. I've seen a video demo and it works there, but when I try it no joy, very frustrating.

I drew a shape with the bezier tool and filled it in with the planar tool resulting in a shape that the Outliner calls a PlanarTrimmedSurfaceShape - I can see the texture, but it's wonky.

Maya Modeling :: Rotate Tool Is Grey And Rescaling Object?

Jun 25, 2012

1. When I use the rotate manipulator the rotated object scales up in the world Y axis warping the object when rotating. In a prior step I scaled the object in the Y axis. I scaled the object while the tool was set to local. However I've done many times before but never had this issue. I've deleted history, cleanup, etc but nothing works. The channel box shows all scales are at 1. To test the manipulator, I created a cube and rotated it but the cube didn't scale so it must be something with the object itself.

The pictures show the scaling in relation to the rotate tool. I zoomed to place the object exactly within the inner ring. You'll see it grows when rotated.

2. The rotate manipulator is grey or partially grey. The tool works so it's not a locked channel. Since both issues happened at the same time I'm thinking they are related.

3. I can't get the X/Y grid to show on the front view. The grid is enabled on the panel and in the preferences. The front view, shows the plane of the X/Z grid. The side view shows the Y/Z grid. The top view show the X/Z grid.

Maya Modeling :: Insert Edge Loop Tool Not Looping?

Jul 26, 2012

I've started up learning Maya again using "Introducing Maya 2012" by Dariush Derakhshani. In Ch. 6: Practical Experience: Modeling A Red Wagon pg's 245-247 I am having an issue with panel A's wedged face getting distorted in level 3 smooth mesh preview. The book recommends adding edges using the Insert Edge Loop tool as a solution but for some reason the Insert Edge Loop tool doesn't loop around the body of panel A as it's supposed to.[URL]

Maya Modeling :: Insert Edge Loop Tool 2013 Not Sliding

I was trained in Maya 2008, and recently made the leap to Maya 2013.

When I try to use the Insert Edge Loop Tool, it seems to only select an existing edge loop, and will not allow me to slide along an edge to place the new one. I have even tried to use the Insert Edge Loop Tool on a simple polygon cube, to make sure this isn't a complex mesh issue.

Maya Modeling :: Fill Hole With Polygons Then Clean Up With Split Polygon Tool

Aug 20, 2012

I am building some geometry and need to fill in this area, (ie fill hole with polygons then clean up with split polygon tool) but I am new to nurbs and am trying to do this model with nurbs. I usually use hull mode and move the hull down into the piece of geometry, but it won't move correctly that way.

So in the picture below i am trying to fill the red area and have it go into the green surface. The curvature of the green area makes it not line up correctly(ie fitting to the curvature of the green surface) when using the "moving hulls" approach. I was seeing if there was an easy way to go about this.

I had this problem with my downloaded trial version of Elements 11 and it appears on the version I purchased in the store today.
