The Complete Bike Owners Manual, Brendan McCaffrey (3d)

Title: The Complete Bike Owners Manual

Name: Brendan McCaffrey

I was commissioned by DK Books to produce over 600 3D illustrations for the Complete Bike Owners Manual released earlier this year. These included full page spreads of cutaway detail, step-by-step repair and installation instructions, cover art, chapter covers, full exploded views and various other instructional images. Please check out the real book and if you are interested in bike repair and maintenance pick up a copy. More info here
I built upon a bike model I had built a few years ago and made a complete model of a carbon road bike with all internals included in order to show the breakdown and repair of the various parts. I also had a second full model created by Gino Marcomini and Ronnie Olsthoorn as well as various parts and tools completed by Moises Guerra Armas.

May i ask you, what modelling software did you use for this project? I have done something like this before, maybe not at such level of detail. Really amazing job. 600 illustrations, wow it's really a massive task. Really impressive, especially you had to do all reverse engineering of construction and technology.

I did the majority of the road bike model in 3ds Max with some parts done in Modo. The Mountain bike was also done in Max by my Colleagues Gino and Ronnie. All the rendering was done using VRay and HDR Light Studio.
