I’ve come up with the following:
Take the size of your car and divide by 2.
Draw a crosshair, which represents your headlights.
Draw a line between those two lines.
Then draw a “S” to indicate where your brakes would be, and another one for your headlights and crosshair.
I’ve tested these on a few cars, and it works perfectly.
How much space do you need for a front and rear bumper?
For those that might be wondering: the distance between the bumper’s point of “point of focus” (the top of your headlights) and the front of what would be a car would be around 2 feet, and the distance between the bumper’s point of focus and the rear of the “car” would be another 2 feet.
How to use the 3Ds Max 12
The first thing to remember is that you should use the software to build models. It’s not hard to draw a car yourself if you’re willing to spend a little time. But it’s much easier to use the 3Ds Max program for model setting than to draw a model or model set yourself.
Step #1: Choose a color palette
If you’re using the free version of 3D Max, you can use your default presets. But if you’re using the paid version, you should first find out exactly which colors you want to match your car. The free version includes 4 presets that I use all the time:
Color 1: Black, Green, Red — These colors look best in the car. It’s possible to use other colors on top of this. (I’ve gotten a lot of mixed reviews with Red or Blue)
Color 2: Yellow, Blue
Color 3: Black, Green — These colors look good on the outside, but need to be used in combination with something to give a hint of texture. The closer to black you draw the color, the more your car will appear flat and metallic.
Color 4: Dark Brown, Yellow, Green
Step #2: Draw out three models
The following steps are helpful only if you’re using the free version of 3D Max. On the paid version, the process is much longer and you’ll spend most of your time setting up your “models” in the programs menus and selecting your “contents.”
Step #1: Select the cars you’d like to use. Be mindful that if you’re going a
