3D Computer Rendering
#1
I'm looking into a career change into the graphics field in some capacity, and I figured what better way to play around and see what it's all about then to make a 3D CAD rendering of what my coupe will eventually be. Here's what I've got so far...it's only the hood, but it took me what felt like forever to figure out all the stuff the program was capable of. More to come as I have the patience and time to work on it when I'm not working on the real thing.

Ok, so about 4-1/2 hrs, and I got the tops of the fenders done. They still need a little tweaking, but I think they look pretty close. This is almost more time consuming than building the real car! Undecided

Name's Mike. I too have done hand sketches of previous projects and find it to be very helpful to see how something will look before you break out the die grinder and welder! I figured I'd try to enter the digital world with this one. Especially because I want to learn as much as I can about computer design before I commit myself to taking classes for it.

Fantastic Mike! I do too think the digital sketch can be an excelent tool in the XXI century so, go for it!

Being able to think in the "paper" and then start cutting is a really advantage... I´m an industrial designer and i´m 100% based on my different sofware tools to develop almost everything... Not a big 3d pro but when i need it for architecture, i manage to use it pretty well...

You´re into modification and restomods for what i can notice so even more useful you´re gonna find the 3D thing...

Keep up posted about your progress Mike!

Heck, where is that "printer" that actually reproduces parts? Just hit the button and "presto", new (old) Mach 1!
