thanks guys im doin my best. Actually with autocad you can make more precise models cause there are mesaurments and stuff, but CATIA is even better heres a tutorial how you make a rim in that program but keep in mind that this is spline modelling and not polymodelling(which im doin)

Yeah Catia is sweet. I used it once when I went to Newport News shipyard to look into a drafting program that they had. Its really cool how you can design whatever, and view it lifesize from every angle.

Wow your work is amazing. I have engineering drawing right now at my high school but we only use turbo cad (2d stuff).
Two questions:
1) is the software your using the $3.5k stuff?
2) How much memory does this take (how much do you need?)

thanks guys, yes this is the rim that a drew (modelled) the price for this sofware is around $4000, but can get a learning version which is free, i have a cracked version. xD i have 8gb of memory, since i have vista 64 bit, it takes full advantage of the 8 gb so i have no problem with big scenes with about 12 million polys. im plannning to switch to xp 64 bit cause this vista sucks **** for doin 3d stuff, not really stable.anyway its better if u have 8gb, but of course u can run the program with 1 gb but expect lots of crashes when ur using high res textures and high poly modells.. Heres the pic of the viewports. i post the rear tire soon

I am beyond amazed

those wheels look real.

Glad I'm not the only one with an obscene amount of ram

keep up the amazing work. Love the updates.
