Anyone with any 3D modeling skills?

Post by LMR DarthMario on Tue 21 Feb 2012 - 0:05

i've been toying with this idea to design a track, but have no 3d modeling software or skills (even just free-hand drawing for that matter). Is anyone in the TORA community capable to turn this pic Here into something that looks like it's real?

i get ideas in my head during work, and just have to draw them out otherwise i lose them. this drawing i made actually started out with some 18ga wire i had on my workstation, bent in a way similar to the picture i scanned above, but the picture above is an evolved version of the wire-"model" (originally, the part of the track exiting from underneath the 'upward spiral' to turn 1 was much shorter, and was only two hairpin corners, and the front straight was much closer to that loop/spiral). Some inspiration for this drawing came from a couple different places. 1, being the schicane section @ Silverstone, 2nd was the upward spiral, from one of the tracks on GT5, and the pit road exit going underneath the racing part of the track like the abu dhabi track

I have some decent cad skills, but I'm totally swamped at the moment with work Sad

I always like to see people getting into track designing for fun, and I'd recommend that you post it here: http://www.ten-tenths.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=59

The My Tracks forum on Ten-Tenths is a place I used to spend a lot of time, and there are a few people who can create tracks on SketchUp, and I'm sure they'd be glad to give it a go!

Try this tool for rfactor - it's real easy to use.
