Matthew Perez is at it again. You may remember the Camaro tutorial he provided last month. This time he’s going a tad smaller, but blasting just as much sweet surfacing knowledge as before.

Matthew’s tutorial is for a JBL Duet Multimedia PC Speaker. He shows, top to bottom, the process of laying out planes, lofting surfaces as well as how to work with splines and boundary surfaces to create your very own skull pounding speaker model.

The .PDF (download below) is 115 pages. Particularly interesting is the simplicity in the steps of laying out the main surfaces. It’s really a great example of how to take on many types of complex surfaces.
