We have recently begun using Maya. The software has been quite difficult to master but now that I have a bit of understanding into how the software works I am enjoying it quite a lot. I had a few problems with saving and opening saved files initially,
Eventually however I resolved this issue and went on to create several interesting designs and fun little animations in Maya.
To make this glass I had to for through the following steps;
1. Go to Create. select the CV Curve tool, Hold the X key when placing an origin point and hit the X key again for the last point.
2. To edit the curve hold down the right click, select Edit Vertex and then Control Vertex.
3. Right click again and switch to object mode.
4. Go to surfaces, choose revolve go to settings, put on a y axis rotation, choose polygons, 12 or 16 segments, control points and then Apply.
