    Default Creating a detailed blade on 3dx max

    Hello gents, now i'll teach you how to create a very very detailed blade via 3ds max in few easy steps... no particular skills are required..


    Let's begin:


    create a box with dimension 30x30x30 as you can see below






    Now press F3 on Perspective view to enter wireframe mode. Once created select the box, right click and convert it to editable poly. Now via poly modifier select two parallel horizontal edges on one of the sides. as you can see below





    Now click the connect button to create a new edge which connects the ones you previously selected.




    Now select the new edge and the two parallel with it on that side. See below





    Click the Connect dialog button, once done set the Segments to 2 and the Pinch to -50 and hit the OK button. See below





    Now switch from Edge to Polygon sub-object mode, then select the two thin polys in the center of the face and extrude the selection 350 units. See below





    Now repeat the extrusion, this time with only 60 units. See below





    Now select the vertices highlighted. Now scale down vertically the selected vertices as shown below






    Until reaching something like this (see Front view)





    Move the vertex at the tip of the blade a bit forward, as in picture below





    Now, select the four edges at the end of the blade, like it is shown in our picture.





    Chamfer the selection 0.1 units. Result is something like this






    Now convert it back to editable mesh and press F3 to remove the wireframe mode
    Next step's to make a material and assign it to model. In this case i used stainless steel










    THE END
