Audi TT (2008) modeling tutorial

146. Select all the objects that you have, the go to modifier list and choose “Symetry”. In the symetry sub-menu you will find “mirror”. Choose Mirror and use move tool to make the other side of the car.

147. On the center of those 2 halfs, verify if the vertices are weld. If they arent, go to modifier list, choose “edit poly”. Or you can make right click > convert to > editable poly, but i dont recommend because if you will need to make any modifications on your car, you need to make on both sides. Let’s came back to our vertices. After you have choosed ” edit poly” from modifier menu, use WELD not “target weld” for those vertices. Using weld they will be welded in the center of the car.

148. Let’s model the front grill. Below you have my model. I’ve used some cilinders, boxes and bend to make this object

149. To make those 4 rings, use a tube with the values which are below and then make 3 copies of that ring. Convert the ring in a editable poly then attach all rings together to make a single object.

Radius 1: 12.0
Radius 2: 9.0
Height : 2.5

Height Segments : 3
Cap Segments : 1
Sides : 18

150. Use “meshsmooth” turbosmooth” to make some surfaces more smoother, assign the materials and render you car. below is my result 😀

  • Thants for great tutorial! I have one question according to back light. When I try to make it the way described in here I loose the tangency with the rest of the back of the car. Is there any possibility that after adding toorbosmoth 2 different object would keep tangency and look as smooth as the original car?

    Superb But i dont know how to render a car please tell me

    If anyone wants absolutely exact proportions of blueprint images you can download it here I’ve changed them with photoshop :). This may help when you stack planes. Just select them 1 by 1 and move to 0,0,0 coordinates for top and side plane, front plane to 0,-50,0 and back plane to 0,+50,0. You will have perfectly stacked planes in perspective viewport :).

    great tutorial, thanks!

    A perfect totorial, I haven’t found anything like this, I looked everywhere. I think you should put this one in, I think they are giving somekind of prizes for uploaded totorials and this one is GREAT !!! I didn’t tryed it yet, but I’ve been looking a lot of them and this one is the BEST.

    You realy should be revorded for this one.

    I would be gratefull if you would make a totorial of setting up the Blueprints. From the begining, how to cut it and what has to be watched during the process(cuting the picture, seting up dimensions of the cuttet picture,seting up the planes sizes), because I can’t find anything, every totorial I looked doesn’t match up to your’s.

    This is one of the best tutorials I have ever come across. I am relatively new to Max but I must say, if I continue learning from excellent tutorials like these, I will be pretty good very soon.
    Thank you, thank you and thank you again.

    Hello I’m Fabio live in Portuguese

    Very good tururial this, but also very difficult for a beginner

    have looked all over the internet and not find my car in order for 3D games, I see older versions but can not find my Ford Fiesta in the year 1999, I would like to help build it myself in 3 D …
    please say something to my email:



  • Enva

    Hey bro, I think there’s a problem in the blueprint. The bottom blueprint and the side blueprint is in a different position, make me little confuse why the planes just fit in one side of the blueprint. Btw, great tutorial!

  • Alun

    Where do you find these blue prints? I would like to do my Z4 ///M 2005. Is there a blue print available?

    Fantastic tutorial.

  • Jonatan


    Im having trouble seeing the other side of the blueprints, it all becomes black because theres some sort of light in the viewport.

    How do I fix it?

    • Ramil

      Jonatan, your elements,right-click,then object properties and turn on “Backspace cull”. it must fix your problem.

      • Jonatan

        Weird, it made the hole picture go away… But no problem! I just turned on “2 lights” and my problem was solved anyways 😀

  • Ramil

    Backface cull,sorry.

  • Hey this is a great tutorial and thank you very much.

  • Hristian

    Great tutorial, but i still don’t understand, why did we need to delete the polys at 108, nad 114. I have some holes on my car now.

  • andre c

    Great work of art and love. I would never expect this degree of commitment on my part. Would you be so kind to publish your renditions in higher resolution. They’d make great wallpapera, specially the 3/4 view from behind.

  • sadegh

    it is good but there is easier technique like as nurb modeling

  • Ashwin

    Awesome! This tutorial is really good for beginners. I was really taken by surprise when i first rendered my model (following this tutorial). All along the way the process was simple yet the model captured most of the complex details of the car and in the end I was like, “did i do that?”. Simply amazing, you kept it simple yet effective. Thanks for the great tutorial!
