Then Collapse to Editable Poly and you should have a nice rounded rectangular block, which we will use as the starting point for the grill. 31 Step 31 Next we need to Delete the left half of our newly created rectangular block, and then remove the back half and finally remove the top and bottom polygons. Then adjust it to fit into the bodywork of the car and then add some horizontal subdivisions to it using Connect. 32 Step 32 From the front view, we can use a basic cylinder as a template, using Cut to create a cylindrical shape into our mesh, just as we did earlier.

Step 37 As with most wheels, we will start by creating a Cylinder and we will add some subdivisions to the outer end. Feel free to make your cylinder with as many polygons as you like, but don’t go wild as the body geometry will look odd next to high poly wheels. I started off with a primitive Cylinder that had 20 sides, 3 Height Segments, and 4 Cap Segments. This gives us a basic form that will look smooth enough without any obvious edges. 38. We can also adjust the height segments, moving them closer to the edge of the rim.

If you’re not familiar with Cut, it can be found in Editable Poly . Edit Geometry, next to Quick Slice. Just select Cut and then Left Click at the corner of the oval window, and then continue to Left Click and trace the shape following the concept art. 17 end the Cut process. As with most processes in 3ds Max, there are different ways to perform this, so feel free to use the tools you are comfortable with.
