Model a High-Poly Car Wheel in 3ds Max - Part 2

The wheels are an often overlooked, but extremely important element in perfecting the look of any car, and the many techniques and tools needed to properly build them can be applied to nearly any hard surface modeling project. In this intermediate/ advanced level video tutorial, you will learn how to model a detailed high-poly car wheel from blueprints.

On this, the first day of the series, we will will create the rim for the wheel. First, we will study a tried and true method of setting up a blueprint, and learn to make an animated x-ray material. Then, we will jump into modeling, where you will learn a wide variety of tools and techniques, both low and high, to complete the final sub-d model.
