Join Dave Schultze for an in-depth discussion in this video Make a car tire and tread, part of Rhino: Tips, Tricks & Techniques.
- [Instructor] In this video we take our existing wheel…and create a simple tire, then we generate…a not-so-simple tread pattern and get it…to flow around the tire surface.…Let's take a look at this final result here.…You'll notice the tire surface wrapped around the side,…tread area and the other side, however you'll notice…that the tread pattern is fairly well contained along…this driving surface and not the side walls.…That'll be important a little bit later.…Let's zoom down to the construction zone.…
I've got this existing wheel here…and a curve already drawn.…Note that we have this line here,…we'll be using that for snapping.…Let's go ahead and make a tire surface right now…by a simple revolve, I'm going to select this curve,…go Surface, Revolve, and we have to navigate around,…just, I want to get two points to define that axis,…and we can speed this up just by saying full circle,…we don't need to pick zero to 360.…So that is our basic tire shape made from…a single curve and a revolve.…
