Need help with ALY71836 Acura RDX Wheel


Hi. I am new to 3d modeling and I have an assignment to model an ALY71836 Acura RDX Rim. The shape is really complicated and I don’t even know where to start. Any help or suggestions would be helpful. I use 3Ds Max. The model needs to be a game spec model that is clean and holds shape when subdivided. Thank you for your time.


I can’t tell you the best way to model it, but I can tell you how I’d model it. However, we shouldn’t do all the work for you. You’ll have to meet us halfway.

Model one set of spokes and then copy in a polar array.


Some better reference images.


If you’re new to modelling then you’re gonna find this extremely difficult and it’s not really a realistic goal for someone just starting out, id argue
most experienced sub d modellers would find it somewhat of a challenge, i agree id i model one section and use an an array
