Reinventing the wheel
Measuring a wheel as a starting point, in this case a wheel from a radio controlled model Tamiya Madcap.
Basic measurements such as diameter and central hex size were taken, as were wall thicknesses to use as a rough guide to start the modelling.
I began working in a CAD drawing programme, to set out the wheel section, and tyre diameters.
I chose not to model this wheel in Vectorworks as it was a programme I was comfortable working in 2D in, but I just couldn’t get the hang of 3D in this release of Vectorworks.
