Setup Camaro blueprint by be_fast


Hi everyone! This is my tutorial of making Camaro blueprint from photos for car modeling in 3ds max

1. So the first step is setting the Units to Metric (centimeters) if you are going to make a real world scale model.

2.The second. Create a car size box (I took it from the official website). In the Properties Dialog turn on Display As Box option.


3. Now place the plane with side car photo (i took all the photos from, you can search it wherever yourself). Move and scale plane to "get the car in" the original size box. 


4. Go to Create Panel and make several NURBS curves as I did. Create all car body edge lines


5. You should get something like this. As you see some of the lines don’t coincide with photo. That’s because I had compensated perspective photo distortion. You must keep it in mind all the time. To make lines connected correctly we must look to the other perspective photos and compare them among each other.

6. Now when we have Y Z lines we must make them 3d by moving along the X axis. This is the result

7. Make front/back lines in the same way.


8. The last thing is to add details


9. After all the work had been done I used all lines as a blueprint and created this model with usual poly/modeling



I hope you’d find this tutorial useful. Good luck everybody!
