Hi, I am still learning Alias and I am currently struggling to model a wrist watch, more specifically the strap and 'buckle' part of it. Can anyone give me any tips/help or point me in the direction of a tutorial or even the tools they would think appropriate for this type of model. Thanks

That's not really a question to put here, don´t you think?

What watch,what kind of shape,etc etc.


If  you are very new to alias, i would suggest you to try the tutorials that you will find in HELP.

After you are more familiar, maybe you could consider start doing the wristwatch you are thinking of, and then post here some particular questions about it. And not, how do I model a wristwatch......


We are all here to help, and we ll be pleased to do so, when you ask something more particular.


Good luck.

Well! I can say, likely in any other software, specially starting from scratch, start messuring a real watch and so you get it closer to real dimensions.
get some blueprints or produce them, so you can trace your surfaces about the image. 


So, I use to have this book during my university time... pretty straight forward easy to use and to understand.


I also do have a file of a concept watch... I will look for it and may share for your reference. 


Carry on practicing all the best.
