Another car.

Another car.

Postby Mike Amos » Fri Feb 18, 2022 1:10 am

Yes, I know.

This one is 11' long 4' 10" wide and 4' tall.

Five seats, a two cylinder engine for recharge and driving the wheels. 2WD.Right now there is a VW Beetle engine in place driving the rear wheels and a sandwich floor inside this is the battery unit.

Nothing exciting, no Ferrari for certain but a reasonable concept I think. There will be one door each side so the rigidity of the body should be OK.

Only a WIP folks so no double thickness glass etc, I'm still working out where everything goes.

Nice start Mike :thumb: I wish I had time to practice more organic modelling, but architecture is my focus ATM. Have you considered blender? I think it would be good for you, If you can get your head around the UI which I am told looks harder than it is

Thanks folks, I have a Blender tut series buy a Polish chap, Witold Jaworski. Not gone too far into it yet but when I am over this bug thing I'm hoping to go further.

No doubt Blender has its assets just like Sketchup. The car is built much the same was it would be in Alias Automotive just more slowly rather than any organic method.

Stay well folks, blurry windy out there.

Need to be careful of the language, original is in Polish but translations are available.

I may never imagine doing these kinds of modeling jobs using Sketchup. I am not a professional Blender3D modeler, but please let me know if I may do any help.

I am starting to add panels and depth to panels etc. The 'pillars' are contained into one unit which I hopefully improved but used a different colour on to bring it forward and be more likely to show any problems. Hopefully.

Interior is being fleshed out but nothing set in stone.
