Superlate Model Race Car

Recommended Posts

This Frame Rollbars is called a Sidewinder

I Have to do some more research for cross frame wear motor sits.. I did modify front frame

here is Ref Pictur as well

If I am posting to much crap let me know

TUBULAR! Too much? Naw- we love this stuff! Why would a frame like this be non-symmetrical?

I have been looking for a post on making Threads and Springs had no luck so far.

Can somebody please help me out with this.

If it's non-related to your racecar frame then make a new post asking for help- and be really specific about what you are looking to do.

As far as the threads... they look so fine on that picture that you could probably just lathe ridges on a cylinder and not worry about them actually being a spiral.

Here is finished Coilover. I did not put action to the springs. My plans for this project are to have this car building itself as it rotates.

Thanks for help

If you would like, you are welcome to use this model of a disk brake and caliper for your car. Not sure if it's the right style or not.

 

I know the rim is wrong, but the rotor is cross drilled and slotted and the caliper is a four piston type. The caliper DOES use a few Boolean Cutters to make the modeling easier on me.

 

Also embedded in the model are the materials, including a rotor "glow" material for when the rotor gets hot during the race. :D

My broad-level suggestion is to do the component parts first.

 

The lights and their immediate housings, the grills and their immediate frames...

 

Place them in space relative to each other and then start stitching their edges together. I think this will be easier than trying to make the general shape and trying to add details to it.

 

If you get stuck come back and ask some more!

Put some Meats under it to see how it Looks.

Thank you for your help .it Removed my Brain block.

still working on it. This project has taken me a few years but I will not give up

I am just a hobbyist every thing I have Learned is because of Animation master Forum the people here are great

THANKS ALL

Here is a threads bump map, you could use it for displacement if needed. Apply cylindrically.

I was scratching my head a bit there too until I put on my racing cap.

I think he means 'tires'. :)

 

That's a great looking ride Maniac.

 

 

Added: Ken! That thread decal works quite well with displacement. Very nice.

Thanks for the Threads will come in handy I still need to learn how to make that stuff I have a lot of beadroll look on tin to do instead of modeling all that

Depending on the intended usage of the final model I would either:

 

1) Use cylinders to cut the holes/shapes out of the wheel (via boolean cutters).

I believe this would be my preferred method especially since the wheel itself is hollow.

 

or

 

2) Model one section with holes (filling in the five point patches) and then copy/flip/attach. Then curve it into shape

 

or

 

3) Model the basic framework with required number of splines/CPs in place and then connect the five pointers to make the holes

 

 

In all the above cases (with perhaps the exception of (1) I would model a section (one section of the three in the middle and 1 of the four on the outer) and then drag/drop that section multiple times into the Chor where they could be reoriented and exported as a more fully complete model. Then import and do final tweaks and placement

 

It appears to me that with copy/flip/attach you might be able to get away with actually modeling 10 holes for the primary section of the outer wheel and two perhaps six for the inner spokes. The rest would be created as you C/F/A.

 

 

Added: Somewhere, Will Sutton has a video tutorial of creating teeth and gums that demonstrates one approach to modeling such detail.

 

Edit: If modeling this all the way (i.e. not using boolean cutters) I think I'd place the cylinders that comprise the holes first so that they are in place and have a slight bevel. Then I'd connect them together via five point patches).

I did a couple proof of concept trials both modeling everything and modeling with Boolean Cutters in mind.

My tests indicate that some planning of where all the Control Points need to be before connecting everything would work well. (Otherwise the model doesn't maintain smooth curvature).

The Boolean method is quick and easy but has the standard issues associated with those, primarily that success can't be seen until launching the render.

 

 

And yes, I stopped modeling the fully modeled test after getting a bit bored creating 5 point patches.

I sense that creating one section of the wheel (with one hole in the section) and then duplicating it as required might be the best way to proceed especially in keeping curvature.

I recommend Booleans for that steering wheel unless it's a "hero" detail that will be examined closely.

The pure splining approach certainly will work but it will be fiddly with lots of five-pointers to turn on.

If you do decide to go for a hero wheel, I'd recommend you extrude the wheel from a 12 pt. circle and the holes from 8 pointers (top image). Five point patches being what they are, you get the smoothest surfaces when you ask them to distort the least. You can certainly embed the 8 point holes into a wheel made from an 8 pt. circle but the surrounding surface may not withstand close scrutiny (bottom image).

As for the "fiddly" part of building these, you only have to do one section with a hole and then copy, paste and join the sections together.

I would use a Boolean cutter if your rendering out and the object is staying in AM. If you plan on exporting it out then you need to model the holes.

 

The Boolean cutter is non destructible and gives great results.

Don't forget that an added level of complexity is that the wheel/tube itself is hollow (even before considering the holes), so two tubes with holes (one inside the other) then connected...

 

I've added an (ugly!) example of the outer/inner tubes of the wheel. It very obviously has a lot fewer holes than the reference image.

Following Rodger's more meticulous approach would resolve the ugliness. :)

I don't think it has great value for us, but it's something the graphic cards can do.

 

I believe it is showing you how the patches are subdivided in real-time. You can see the polygons change as you do PageUp and PageDown.

 

This might possibly be useful if you are going to export to a polygon format and want to preview how dense the different subdivision levels are.

 

 

If I lathe out a straight three-ring cylinder and view it at the top subdivision level ("adaptive") it has polygons that stretch from one ring to the next. If I displace the center spline ring, those long polygons immediately get subdivided.
