need to finish the roof and front now.

 

 

Great job on the NIXUS so far Viper. Started doing one myself (also in the WIP section). Not much done yet, but getting there.

I seen. I loved the wheels u made for it. Could u send the wheel as a mdl to me. I would just like to seee how it would look on my nexis sins my side is almost all done. My email is on my profile.

No problem. I have attached the model file here. I really need to re-work the spokes and eventually plan to add the tread using displacement maps.

thats an amazing model so far.

 

are you using the bias handles? they're great for getting the right rounded edges you're looking for.

 

Also, there's a 5 point patch on the hood that's been stretched beyond it's limit and has a black line running down it.

 

cool car

bias handles?? Whats that? and could u show me were that 5 point patch ur talking about is.

Bias handles allow you to adjust the magnitude and direction of any spline point, making modeling strange surfaces less of a pain. The bias handle itself is a yellow manipulator that appears once you activate the show bias handles button on the main toolbar. They would definitely make the smoothing a lot easier, but use them only after you have the entire shape of the car down and the majority of your smoothing already done by simple modeling.

 

The 5 point patch is at the steep curve on the front end of your car. You can see the subtle black line accross the center of the 5 point patch which shows that it's distorting. It doesnt look like much now, but once you add reflections, this patch will do some crazy things.

wow ya about that 5 point patch i did not know wat to do about that so i thout it will be ok if i leav it how it is. I use distortion mode to get the shape down. Thx for the tips i will try all wat u said and see how it goes.

Worked on the front some more today. I know its taking me long but i want this model to turn out good.

cool, can you show the shaded view? i think you may have to rethink the patches around the spokes on the tires. ^_^

About that long 5 point patch...if you keep the patch a small as possible and as flat as possible, it won't give you any trouble. I haven't really scrutinized your splinage, but you might run an extra spline to make the 5 pointer smaller and then hook the extra spline. Just a thought on the fly. You really have become much better. Great job.

The model is coming alone really nicely. Before you know it, you will have an awesome car model to play with B-).

 

Here is one piece of splinework I think you should avoid. Those 2 splines merging together as circled in the attachment will always

leave unwanted creases. A better approach is to reroute the lower spline and turn that 3 point patch into a 4 pointer as shown.

Now dont laugh but i forgot how to doo a hook. o ya and thx for pointing that out to me. iI will do that as soon as i find out how to do hooks again..

I also noticed that just over and left of the area I suggested using a hook, there seems to be a 5-point patch that looks like a 4-pointer with an extra cp in the middle on the bottom. You should consider deleting that extra cp and using a hook there as well, or else you will get a weird distortion in that area. 5-point patches should really only be used when you integrate an edge/spline loop into a rectangular mesh (i.e. wherever you put a hole)

 

I gotta say, though, the model is looking great so far. I am very impressed.

How is this better or no? Dan.

when attaching one spline to another between the other's cp's, right clicking on an empty area of the spline you are connecting to will create a hook.

yeah thats easy, its a simple matter of changing the direction the spline is going...

I can fix those creases for you, no problem. Send me the model.

 

Thats nice but im using AM v11 and u all are using v13 and v14 so i will not be able to open it later in my V11.

Once again, at those locations with creases, you have 2 splines merging into one. That's always a crease-maker. Change it so those splines do not

merge, and you'll be set. You might want to examine the model closely for other areas you may have merged splines and fix.

Here are a couple of more suggestions. Create 5 point patches as shown and remove the spline sections I have marked with a squiggly. Move circled cps over to create a more even distrubution of splines. Remember, the longer and skinnier you make a patch, the harder it will be to create a smooth surface.

 

Sometimes is takes a lot of patience and perseverance when modeling. When you get the mesh as smooth as humanly possible, add a 'Porcelain' material to force the mesh into a higher degree of smoothness.

 

Great looking model so far. I can't wait until you finish. Are you planning on using it in an animation?

ya maybe a simple one. I model most of the time. Im not good wen it comes to the animation part but can do it. O ya and thx again for taking ur time to try help me out. :)

whats the image on your cd?

 

btw after seeing your model i'm excited about the render!

 

btw if you around half way done..why can't you just copy/flip/attach it?
