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. I may do some more in the future as I learned a few tricks in doing the piece.

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.
