Hey guys.
Quick question.
How do you think is it possible that this guy models all these cars in such detail?
I don't believe it's possible. Not from photos or sketches.
Any thoughts?

Quick guess completely off the top of my head with absolutely no evidence to back it up, so draw your own conclusions.... but anywaaaaayyyyy.....

VRay Scans seems to be especially dedicated to automotive materials. Very, very, very high quality scanned materials such as these may go some way to answer your questions. See for yourself:

Ok I get that he could be using ready made high quality materials. My question is not really about the rendering, but the modelling itself.
It's extremely detailed. How would one procure such detail? I know for a fact automotive companies do not give out 3d models or even detailed drawings of their products.
So what's the source material?
It literally cannot be by eye. Like, looking at photos and modelling by using them as guides.

I did exactly that last summer, modelled an F-Type just with photo reference.

In my workplace we get the raw CAD data from car manufacturers (AUDI, Porsche, Land Rover) and extract curves from that, then transform them into subdiv-meshes.

Any tips how to do that efficiently?

booleans

Fucking idiot.

You have to model cars like this with curves.
>>
>>607586
You can also use booleans like Tor Frick

>how does someone model so much detail?

>booleans!

you are currently the most retarded person on this board. there is no runner up
>>
>>606620
how do you extract curves from CAD data? also, how big is this CAD data?
>>
>>606563
NURBS-modeling; de facto standard in the automotive industry
>>
>>609621
several gigabytes

Can't give you any details about this, as the guy who handles that data has a security classification.

Car manufacturers, especially german ones are SUPER picky with their data. Understandably so.

I'm sitting below him in the pipeline, i get the polygon mesh from him. He converts it to NURBS with some CAD app and then into polymeshes with Maya...
