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

21. The spokes are a little bit pushed the to the exterior of the rim. So, select the same vertices as me, and drag them just a little bit to the interior like in the second image :



22. The next thing that we should do, is to solve the triangle problems after the chamfering process. Since we have chamfered the edges at the 20 step,we should check to see if we have triangles on our mesh, because if we have, they can ruin our mesh when we will apply a smooth modifier. So, if you have spotted triangles like in the first image, select the same vertices as in the left side of the first image, then use the “Weld” tool to weld them. And there are also problems like in the second image. If you will spot them, select these 3 vertices as in the second image and use the “Weld” tool to weld them



23. Select these 2 vertices, then press the “ring” button to select other edges and when you are done, connect them using the same values like in the second image. And in the 3rd image, you need to select those edges and drag them a little bit to the interior :




24. The next steps will be these : select these edges :


Press the “loop” button to select the edges in a circular mode :


When you are done, apply a Chamfer on the selected edges using a small amount :


And after the edges were splited, check the mesh for triangles and solve them as before :


25. Now select the exerior border of the rim (first image) , use loop for a faster selection, hold the “Shift” button and drag the border a little bit to the interior of the rim


Keep the border selected , hold the shift button ans using the “Scale” tool, increase the size of the vorder to create a new row of edges like below :


Then make again a new row until you will reach the “lip” of the rim :

  • Imaginea a treia de jos in sus arata cel mai bine :X

  • Se pare ca mi-a adaugat comentariul la pagina 1 si nu despre imaginea de aici voiam sa zic. Ma refeream la imaginea de la pagina 12 :X

    Theres something missing.
    Between Pic. 53 and 55 theres nothing which shows the making of the middle part in the inner (around bbs logo).
    its suddenly just there.

    anyways good tut.

      ok found it couple pages later. confusing because your screenshots already show that area

      • I am glad you solved the problem :) . Don’t forget that if you need help, we are on the forum, waiting for questions :)

  • Can i have photos from 26 to 35

    Great tutoriel !!

    I have just one question: I downloaded the background image (BBS LM Rim) and when I Press M and follow your tutorial, the image quality is really bad, Why?
