One by One – The Screw Modifier in Blender

I love Blender…

It rocks. Period. And when it comes to modelling I am finding more and more that I can do faster iterations of objects than in Maya.

With the modifier stack in play, I can duplicating and making a new version can be done in minutes. But what about the simple things? What about revolving a profile to make a solid object? Where is that function? I can’t see revolve? Or Lathe? Or anything that sounds like turn-me-around-to-make-a-solid…oh, Screw does that?

Yes, the Screw Modifier does exactly that. And more.

Screw thread? Yes! Animatable Spring? Yes! Watch this video to find out how.

Take a look at the video below to find out more. Better still, subscribe to the channel and you’ll see a new one of these every week. Sometimes a “One by One” where we talk about what each part of blender does – at the moment we are concentrating on modifiers – other times tutorials on specific things or quick tips to make your life easier.

You want to see something not here? Then let me know in the comments. I’m always keen to help out where I can.

Take care and stay safe.
