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

36. Select the border of the ole, and use the “Shift” button to pull the border to the interior of the rim like I did below. And when you are done, you can use “Scale” + Shift to make it a little bit smaller or even close it :


37. Like I have said earlier, the edges without a chamfer on them, will be very smoothed/round after we will apply a smooth modifier. But here, the edges which surounds the hole, need to be a little bit sharp. To do this, we need to apply a “Chamfer” on the selected edges. Then we need to look out for triangles and solve them (in the second and the third image, you have a method to weld the vertices )




Then we will apply a chamfer on these edges too, but here we won’t have any triangles :


Continue like this for the other 4 holes.
38. Apply a “chamfer” on these edge too :


39. Another details that we need to make, are those small bolts which surounds the rim. You have the modeling process for one bolt : start from a tube, delete the interior, the close it and make the center bended to the interior , apply a chamfer like in the next images and thats all :







40. To place those 20 bolts perfectly, first, we need to move the pivot of our bolt in the middle of the scene :
