Good morning, I'm Michele from Italy and 28 years old.
I'm a footwear designer and sometime industrial designer.
I work on Cinema 4d and Vray from 8 years and 3 days ago my friend say to me: Take a look to MOI3D it's powerfull and i 've downloaded the demo.
I would to like to use this software because work with nurbs, actually i work with boxmodeling technique but is not precise like nurbs.
I love to design cars but i dont know the real workflow for it.
Can you post some pictures step to step for make a realistic model of a car? I've tried lot but without results!!! Online there are tutorials but not for Moi, for me is a new world and very difficult.
this is my blog you can see some of my work: http://fabbricadigitale.blogspot.com
Thanks a lot, ciao!

Michele

Hi Michele, welcome to MoI!

Unfortunately modeling a car is a really pretty difficult task, you should be prepared to spend quite a bit of time refining techniques to get good at doing that.

It's not really an area that I have a lot of experience in so I won't really be able to help you very much with it myself, sorry!

Probably your best bet is to look for some car tutorials that were done using Rhino, here are a couple of links that may be useful to help get you started:

I would really recommend starting out with some more simple models first so you can get more accustomed to how the NURBS modeling toolset works first before trying to tackle such a difficult model.

There are some video tutorials available here:

And some other ones listed here:

Going over those non-car tutorials would probably be a good step in the right direction because it would help to get you more familiar with the general toolset first.

- Michael

Hi michele,
This forum is invaluable to learn MoI and Nurbs modeling in general.

For a long time I couldnt figure out "How someone could create a car" as when I started modeling one for myself, trying to make 1/8th inch sheetmetal would take all my resources of my computer to make 2 doors!

After sticking around here a bit I found that only surfaces are used to do this.

Here is a link from awhile back that has a model you can load and look at for inspiration and reference.

Good luck,
Burr
