My actual project: the APC concept design from Ron Cobb for the alien movie.
I use a drawing to draw the model.
Now i’m converting all details to quadfaces for subd to get a smoother surface for rendering.

I’ve seen drawings of that including the motion of the steering. Nice job!


This picture is used for the work in sketchup.

What’d you use to convert to quad faces?


I use quadface tools, vertex tools, meshwrapper and subd.
Meshwrapper provides the hotkey P to soft an select edge - makes 3 triangles to a quad.
Quadface tools has a feature to color the faces, green=quad, blue=triange, red=polygon.
This helps me to draw and modify the geometry in quads.

More details added according to the drawings.




I give the tires a bit bulged look on the ground to “simulate” the weight.
