3DS Max tutorial – how to model a rim BBS LM

11. When you are done, keep the mesh selected, go to the “Modifier list” > pick the “Symmetry” modifier and you should have the other side too :


12. Now make another tube, as you did the first tube : use the same coordinates, move the pivot in the middle/center of the viewport and delete the rear and side polygons :



13. Below you can see how I have attached those 2 tubes and made a single object. To attach them one to another, just select one of the parts, click the “attach” button and choose the other part. When you are done, weld the vertices as you see in the last images of this step. You can do this by using the “Weld” tool :



14. Now, starting from those 2 edges selected in the left side of the image, hold the shift button and drag them to the exterior, to create another row of poligons. When you are place, place them as in the right side of the image and don’t forget to weld the images :


15. Having only one spoke, we will create the onther one using the “Array” tool. This tool we will create several copies of our object arround his pivot. To do this, go to “Tools” > “Array” (first image). Then, when the menu appeared , make the following settings (second image) :
