Waffen One: Schnuller

After years of avoiding weapons I have just completed my first one, an Assault Rifle concept, of my own design. I did all the work in Modo including the concepting while I modelled this meant it took a bit of time to complete. I may do some more in the future as I learned a few tricks in doing the piece. More renders on artstation The name schnuller is a play on words from the US English translation.

Reverse a Curve in Modo

This one is too easy but I never got it so: Select the Curve in Poly mode (3 key) then hit F to flip. Boom the curve direction is reversed, F is used to Flip the polygon faces so I would never have guessed but when you know it makes sense.

MODO Topology Pen Shortcuts

The pen tool in MODO is pretty powerful and come with a lot of of shortcuts as noted below: Click = Move Right-click = Move Edge Loop Middle-click = Split Shift+click = Duplicate Shift+right-click = Duplicate Loop Shift+middle-click = Add Loop Ctrl+click = Slide Ctrl+middle-click = Remove

MODO Repeat Last Command Reset

I recently had occasion to reset the CTRL R key in MODO which repeats the last command. It isn’t the easiest command to find and so I am making a note of it on here: cmds.fireAgain uiCmds:false selectionCmds:false Searching for last or repeat obviously wont help you find this esoteric beauty.
