Sample text

In the wheel arch reduce the number of vertices by welding the two vertices closest to the corners to remove them. Also add three sets of cuts up the side panel and roof. This will leave a vertex on its own, and we’ll connect that up in the next step. Next we’ll adjust the left vertex at the corner of the roof to match the roof contour better. The side panel should now be made up of seven polygons. 9 Step 9 We can now connect the lonely vertex by connecting two cuts up to the roof line, making the side panel consist of eight polygons.

We only need to do this to half of the object as we are going to use 47 3D Automotive Modeling symmetry to create model changes on both sides. We can also add a Chamfer on the lines we just cut and use Connect to create extra horizontal edges to connect the corners of the cylinder. We can also add mode sub divisions to the front and bottom of the radiator. 33 Step 33 The bottom of the radiator is finished off by extruding the edges and closing it up. Remember that we’re still using the Symmetry modifier to create the other half of the vehicle.

45 54 Modeling the Chicago-Styled Hot Rod Step 45 Next we’ll create the front mudguard. 46. 46 Step 46 Now clone the selected polygons by Shift-Scaling them out slightly to create the starting point for the mudguard and then round off the edges. The advantage of using the tire as the starting point is that we get the exact profile of the wheel. Widen the mudguard slightly so that it covers the wheel. 47 55 3D Automotive Modeling Step 47 To create the inside of the mudguard, we need to pull down the inside vertices of the mudguard.
