Another wip project: 1970 Porsche 908/03

Seats done in quadfaces for subd - the ‘passenger’ seat is smaller to save weight - the car must have 2 seats according to the Reglement.
Front suspension design started, upper wishbones done incl. Steering.

Spaceframe design work.
Most of the tubes are positioned.
I have to figure out another shape to replicate the welds.

Nice.

You could do welds with texturing apps like substance painter:

“rolling chassis” progess so far.

meanwhile i reworked and adjusted the car body with the help of new pictures and Vertex-Tools and Quadface-tools - makes the work much easier.
front: new body - rear old body


top old body, bottom new body - front section adapted and redrawed, rear section height increased

Subd applied on body and tires.


Photo of a real car - gives a good view about the size of the car.

Designing brake disk.
2 segments with holes and ‘quadfaced’ - green color indicates all faces are quads.


Rotate and copy the 2 segments 9 times for a full disk

Plugin JointPushPull used to add thickness

Subd applied

Inner vane design

rotate and copy the vane 19 times

Brake disc component copied

Subd applied

Front suspension still wip :scream:

Next reply will show the caliper design progress.

A step back and redraw the brake disk
First “try”


New design - quad faces more square and no distortions

“Old” and new quad design

This is going really well keep it up, I’d love to try and render it when you are done if that’s acceptable!

Have a good Christmas!

New year starts with some redesign work. I found some very useful and also large detail pics of the engine and decided to redraw the main parts of my engine design.

I split the main engine body in 3 sections for more flexibility of using quads and subd.
Middle section

Front section

Rear section

The sections contains different groups and components - most of them already made with quads.
Now i can subdivide each single part and do not need tons of lines to get them aligned as quads.

Hi @tengel07

Absolutely brilliant work!

Apologies, but if I could just ask a quick question about the use of SubD.

How do you make sure that the component is the correct final size after running SubD? For example, when you did the Brake Disks, how do you make sure they are the correct diameter when SubD has finished?

Kind regards

Mike

Hi @MichaelSiggers,
i did inital some testings with subd to get the scale factors for the proxy geometry.


The scale factor for the proxy depends on the segments of the circle and on the applied subd iterations.

instead of the scale factor, you can also use the dimensions if you include the units.
