Naming Objects

Each time you create an object, Maya gives it a default name. This name is a description of the actual object, followed by the number of times the object type was created. For example, nurbsSphere7 would be the default name for the seventh NURBS sphere created in the scene (Figure 3.71). In order to make an object easy to find later, you will want to change its default name to something more descriptive. For example, if you create a sphere for use as a head, then change the name to head. This keeps things organized and clear as you continue to add objects to your scene.

Figure 3.71. nurbsSphere7 would be the default name for the 7th NURBS sphere created in the scene.
