Using the techniques and workflows learned throughout this Introduction to Retopology course, you're now challenged to finish retopologizing the Robo Orb object. The bulk of the work has been done, but there are two challenging areas left to retopologize, including the circular insets and the void between those insets and the rest of the form. Your task is to apply what you've learned, creating a clean, final mesh that captures the original form (and detail) using only quads.


  1. Download the starter model from the Downloads tab.
  2. Complete the remaining retopology using any method of your choosing.
