Using Reference Planes

References aren’t just for fun! You can also import images into Maya to work directly on the reference. For a model like this, it’s best to create three different image views of the model (front, side, and top) to give you the most information as you build the model. The first step, of course, is to take pictures of your intended model from these three angles. Figures 6-2, 6-3, and 6-4 show photos taken of the front, side, and top views of the wagon.
