I am showing a defect here using the Crvtr. Eval. Diagnostic Shader. This tool takes a long time to really master, but it is covered in the LearningAlias course

bike-frame-3

First you MUST analyse all your srfs. especially the transitions, if you can see wobbly lines
using your Sophotes Eval. shader, then your highlights will magnify the error.

bike-frame-6

Here I am using an additional tool to evaluate my transition srfs. You will learn how to do this on the LearninAlias course.
bike-frame-5
Here you can see that my nearside srfs are perfect, but there is still a glitch to iron-out at the back (just in view).

bike-frame-4

Job done! Now we are ready to see how to render the final srf-set in K-shot in the next post.

bike-frame-7

Don’t you just love Alias?

Here’s the fender that we’ll learn to render:

How to Build a Door Mirror CAD

Follow Me.跟我来:

Here’s a student question that I have answered and would like to share with all you aspiring Alias Automotive guys

Mirrir_Door-1

Q) “Hi Graham
I want to build a door mirror for the first time. Do you have a tutorial please and what tips would you give to a Mirror Rookie?
I thank you kindly for your time
Jamie”

I would give a door mirror task to a guy with several years experience,

as mirrors have to be modeled on discrete axes and not in the world space default  planes. They are often complex in form with a lot of tricky details and generally there is a requirement towards the end of the project for full G3. Taking this into account it is best to start on a mirror which has been designed to be a little less challenging than the A5 mirror.

Modeling icon Barry Kimball says that at times he spends 30% of his hours on a complete exterior just building the door mirror.

mirror-door-g2

This is not something that you can rush into and is not something that you can expect to get good highlights on the first hit.

Learning to build a mirror is a journey and you should be prepared to have 2 or three goes at your first one (G2 only) and then move on to the next level of design complexity. So building a mirror, is a mini Alias journey, in it’s self. It is one of the areas where you will really start to learn about achieving G3 by *accelerating the edges of Parents and also learn where you need to trim or extend to (parent boundaries/chordal width of fillets) in order to be poises to create G3 highlight flows. (*My students learn to reposition the CV hulls which determine G3 crvtr. condition. They learn the first principals of direct modeling the CV hulls and what follows takes several years of experience.)

Mirrir_Door-G3

So it’s not easy and you shouldn’t expect smooth flowing HL’s, until you have spent a few weeks in the amazingly consuming world of mirrors and unless you have several years experience, you won’t be able to meet G3 criteria for all the transitions. It is also important to remember that in a studio you would be given mesh-data to work from taken from a scan of the clay or hard model.

Wheel Arch Anti Tangent

Follow Me.跟我来: facebook

Hi, I’m Kevin de Smet, Elite student group at LearningAlias

I think most of us can imagine the surface-set required to model a wheel arch.

What I would like to put the attention on in this post is the large parent body side surface.

This surface is somewhat special,

in that the trim edge and top natural edge now flow outwards from the top left vertex with an anti tangent relationship (i.e. the opposite of tangent)

First, let’s take a look at the underlying control vertices.

Good. Now, let’s switch to another example

where the modeling was done in a slightly different way. Notice how the anti tangent situation has been avoided altogether by the use of an additional little patch, but that will have left you with a five sided gap that you now somehow would need to fill.

So… some genius, decided to put a power fill function to work, most likely done in a solid modeling package.

Now, surprisingly enough, the highlights on this ridiculous surface look perfect! really, it does!

This is a shot of good fortune, because very often it only manages to generate a surface with forced G2 at the boundaries and a very tumultuous interior to the surface. I can only imagine the solid modeling operator also used additional constraint curves to control the interior of the patch better.

Now, let’s get back to our previous example, with our anti tangent situation. Albeit just in the trim space of a nice clean 4 sided UV structure. By now we have added the fillets along the theoretical style edge.

By this stage in the model, this is now what’s left of that parent surface.

Now, let’s check the tangential continuity relationship

by selecting the top left most point generated by the top natural edge and the trim edge of the wheel arch, using the Curve Continuity function.

As we can see, it now has about 10 degree difference.

It’s still an acute intersection, but it’s perfectly geometrically and topologically legit.

Now let’s look at this model’s top wheel arch patch,

it’s a trimmed out five sided surface just the same as the previous model, but a quick glance at the control vertices and you’ll understand that we didn’t need any power fill to get to where we wanted to be. And this patch we still have under control, it’s a nice added bonus compared to power fills!

I hope this has been informative! Enjoy your Alias

A Method of Analyzing Gap and Flush Conditions, Visually

Follow Me.跟我来facebook

One of the more important areas on a car body are the flush and gap conditions,

this for aesthetic reasons as well as engineering concerns. Making sure all of the parts fit together whilst ensuring they don’t have so much slack that they leave large unsightly gaps that look and feel sloppy to the customer.

For a long time this could be done by engineers with output that consisted of graphs, tables and text. Visual tools have been used as well for mechanical engineering systems such as powertrain components. But what about exterior body panels?

There is a tool that aims to do just that: Aesthetica by Icona Solutions.

Process_1_-_press-snap-initial-load_FW

What it allows the engineer to do,

is as follows: 1. define the tolerances using GD&T on each part 2. assign a sequence of assembly (how each part is fitted to each part, and in what order) 3. see absolute worst case or statistical worst case results, visually
