Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding trim, part of Blender: Vehicle Modeling.
- The car is finally taking shape…but we still have a lot of detail work to do.…Now this detail work is very time consuming…so let me just show you one or two more tricks…for creating that detail so you can…finish the car yourself.…I'm going to take a look at the trim of the vehicle.…Now we have a lot of trim around this car…that are, for example, around the windshields,…or around the headlights.…And these are basically chrome or rubber strips…that outline portions of the vehicle.…So let's go ahead and take a look at the trim…that outlines this headlight cover.…
Now we can model this using the edges that already exist.…So I have the edge of the glass…as well as the edge of the body to which it attaches.…Now I need to decide whether to use…the glass or the body as the source of this trim.…I'm going to use the glass for this one.…So I'm actually going to hide the body of the vehicle.…And let's just take a look at these headlight covers.…Now I'm just going to use the left one here.…So we're going to go into edit mode.…
