Okay ive got my graphics folio due within 1-1.5 weeks and need to know how to use Autodesk 3DS Max 2009 to design a car...

Its the most complicated thing ive ever used =]

does anyone know how to set up blue prints on planes and convert it to a 3D shape....ive looked at tutorials still seems bit complicated just wondering if anyone is kind enough to give me a quick run down. thanks

I've done a bit of work in 3dSMax, and modeling a car isn't easy. The basic run down is that you need an orthogonal projection of the car. Basically, once you have a front, side rear and top view of the car, you'll need to split each eamage and apply it onto a plane/ box primative of the same proportions. For example, if your side elevation view is 600px tall x 1300px wide then you'd make a plane 600units tall by 1300units wide and apply the image to it as a material.

I don't have too much time to go into too much more detail now, but I'll try and get another reply to you later on today.

geezus 1 week. not much time to model a car lol!

unless u intend to do a rough job. in ur time frame i would be looking at coarse mesh + meshsmooth modeling easiest to do. plenty of tutorials out there that'll take u step by step through it.

took me about 2 weeks to do this one in my holidays back in 2004. this was using rhino3d(nurbs) and imported to 3dsmax to render.

impressive work Naga! I've never been much of a modeler, as most of my knowledge is in shading, textures and lighting. Any chance I can grab the file you imported into max so I can do a bit of texture/ lighting work on it? See what I can make of it?

the more practice you get the faster you will be able to make the models, i have been doing it for the past 3-4 years now.

the lemans car below took 8 hours to get to this point. will spend another 5 - 10 hours finishing it off with all the finer details.

1 - 1.5 weeks to learn and get a good quality model done will be a HUGE ask.....

    • Hey everyone! I'm new here!  I am a 19 year old tyre fitter at bridgestone. My passion for cars started at a very young age when I was bought a au falcon look-alike go kart.When I was younger about 13 or so I heard a car speeding up the hill past me and all I saw was its rear end. A skyline r33, rear end and ever since that day I've dreamt of owning one!   102,000km 5sp manual top mount a/r 70 turbo
    • i think the general rule of thumb (here in vic at least) in 2 up 1 out, so from the std 16"x6" up to and including 18"x7"  but i could be wrong, ask your local tyre dealer they know the rules , it's their job
    • Worth a shot, but not saying this will be it I had issues with my CAS a long time ago after i disturbed it when I did my timing belt. Spent a long time taking top timing cover off and running, and putting it back on and running Noise went away with it off and CAS mounted, came back when cover was back on with CAS Mounted From memory the spacers were not installed in the gasket or something fun along those lines. Eventually ended up replacing the CAS to as it had a horrible bearing noise It was already suggested above but it would be worthwhile taking the top timing cover off and see if noise goes away
