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.....
