Shane Benson continues his series of Subdivision Modeling Techniques in Cinema 4D with a look at creating radial patterns. To facilitate the tutorial Shane shows mixing multiple surfaces in a round form by choosing to model a car rim.

1th part of the series. This is a 3 part tutorial on modeling a rim

Shane notes that a car rim will be round, symmetrical, and have a radial pattern to challenge modelers in any software package. Shane shows how to create the whole surface including the holes for the lug nuts, by NOT using booleans at all – which is the way that it should be.
