Modeling 3D Wheels - Complete Video Workshop


Learn how to model a 3D wheel assembly in 3D Studio Max...


3D Modeling & Texturing Video Workshop - By Dave Scotland

In this workshop, you learn how to:

  • Create a stylish 3D Wheel Assembly, complete with a slick racing tyre in 3D Studio Max.

  • You will start by going over various reference images to assess the visual make-up of the desired product and to familiarize ourselves with what you are trying to ultimately achieve.

  • Once this is done, you will block-out the object with basic primitives before moving onto more detail, through the use of “sub-poly modeling” or “mesh-smooth modeling”.

  • As part of this process, you will learn how to maintain crisp edge detail and also how to keep smooth organic curves.

  • Once the model is built, you will learn how to create a simple lighting system which includes GI or global illumination and also how to create and apply base materials for the rim and tyre elements.

  • You will then take these materials further and design some great text graphics for the tyre and learn how to apply them over the base materials.

  • You will then, learn how to create and apply a displacement map for certain text elements.

Once these various processes have been complete, you will be left with a very stylish looking wheel assembly which can be used in conjunction with a full vehicle model or to simply be placed in your growing arsenal of 3D assets and skills.
