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

41. When the pivot is in the middle of the rim, we will use again the “Array” tool to make 20 copii of this bolt and place them automatically on the rim :


42. We are moving forward and we will create the bolts which support the rim. We can start by creating a tube or a cylinder. If you have started with a tube, delete the interior polygons and close the top part like I did below. Once the upper part is closed, apply a chamfer on the selected edges from the last images from this step :












43. Put the bolt into the holes. In the image you will see just a single hole but I hope that you did the rest of them too :


44. Now we will continue with the middle of the rim. In the images you won’t see the holes because I have remade the tutorial. So, select the border of the central hole, hold shift and drag it to the interior of the rim :



45. Keep the edges selected and use the “Scale” tool and the shift buton to shrink the hole and also create a new row of polygons, then come back with those edges to the top :
