Sample text

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.

48 cm with the Inset Type set to By Polygon. Then just move the newly created inner polygons inward slightly. 42 Step 42 Optionally, if you prefer to match the concept more closely by having fewer holes in the rim, try selecting every other polygon in the loop before applying the Inset modifier. Feel free to customize this feature as you like. 43 53 3D Automotive Modeling Step 43 As the back wheel is very similar to the front one, we just need to Copy it, Scale it up, align it with the ground, and make it wider.

Don’t forget to check Copy UV’s. Then just attach it again to the rest of the car. Congratulations, the model is now complete. We will now move on to UV mapping the model. In this case the process should be fairly simple, and we can manage it with only a few functions in the unwrap modifier. 64 need to assign the checkerboard pattern to the car, as we will need it for checking the proportions of the sides and for rotating the UV islands. UV Unwrapping Step 64 Assign the checker pattern with 10 3 10 tiling to the car and apply an Unwrap UVW modifier.
