Hydrant – Hard Surface Modeling Tutorial in Blender
In this almost 2 hours long video, you will see my workflow to model this hydrant in Blender with my add-ons.
You will see how I add a reference with Easyref Addon, how I make the blocking with simple cylinders and how I add the details to have the final product. It’s more like me who show my workflow than a slow tutorial, even if I show and explain to you everything.
In the first part, I will add a reference in the 3Dview with my Easyref addon. Then, I will start the modeling and follow the reference. I start with the blocking and continue to add details, for that I use my Speedflow add-on to add bevels with bevel weight and give different sizes of the bevel.
The goal is to keep everything editable – to not apply the bevels, to avoid the burden of removing them afterwards. After the blocking, I will start to add details to the mesh, add different parts and finish the model.
The final product will be as clean as possible – as you can see in the gallery.
