Melting object is a step-by-step tutorial on how to create a melting effect in Autodesk Maya. The tutorial assumes that the reader is having a basic understanding on Maya toolbox and Menu systems.

The first step to give the melting effect is to create a NURBS sphere and NURBS plane with U and V with 10 and then add a lattice to the sphere with S, U and V value with 6.

Now the next step is to select the ffd1Lattice and make sure that the lattice does not intersect with the plane. After that, make the lattice into a soft body with the default settings. Then select the particles of the soft body and make it collide with the plane. Next, add gravity to the particles with a Magnitude value of 1.

Now add turbulence to the particles with the default settings. After that, playback on the time slider. You will get a similar output as shown below. A MELTED SPHERE!
