Just recently tried out Maya 2017 update 3. In terms of modeling its really impressive, the new bevel method is working really well. allowing me to add support edges very easily with the click of a few buttons. Can't wait to really go in depth into testing all the rest of the modeling tools. But so far Ive been liking this release. Wishing that work is upgrading to maya 2017.
heres a video on some new features.
