Semi truck wheels, originaly made for semi truck. Model is low poly with mesh-smooth modifier applied on top of them. Models are very flexible so the number of polygons can be drastically reduced if needed.
Number of polygons / verts per wheel in high poly | low poly versions:
BIg wheel: 16.976 / 17050 | 1.568 / 1.426 Small wheel: 15.580 / 15918 | 1.284 / 1408
V-ray materials are used in scene so V-ray plug-in is recommended but not necessary in order for scene to work. Along with native .max file format comes 2 other formats .3ds and .obj which can be imported in any 3D application. Textures, bump, opacity, glossines, displace and other maps are included.
Maps are UV unwrapped, with mostly none overlapping spots. The areas where UV's are overlapping are either inside of an object, in small tight areas between two objects or polygons that are not visible, on the objects that are perfectly symmetrical so they overlap each other in order to take larger space on UV map for a much clearer texture, or on the objects that doesn't have any texture on them, just the material with shader. In any case the model is perfectly renderable from any angle, far or close up and wont show any deformation/irregularity on the texture.
Exchange formats, such as .3DS and .OBJ are included, both low and HighPoly. Below is the list of 3D applications used for import-testing as well as the information on whether they support certain formats or don't. For Blender, use OBJ instead of 3DS
- LowPoly_3DS - Blender - Use the OBJ version Lightwave - Imports, no errors Sketchup - Imports, no errors Cinema 4D - Imports, no errors Maya, Softimage XSI, Houdini - NOT Supported
- HighPoly_3DS - Cannot be exported from 3ds max due to large number of polygons.
- LowPoly_OBJ - Maya - Imports, no errors Cinema 4D - Imports, no errors Softimage XSI - Imports, no errors Houdini - Imports, no errors Lightwave - Imports, no errors Blender - Imports, no errors Sketchup - Does not support .OBJ by default.
- HighPoly_OBJ - Maya - Imports, no errors Cinema 4D - Imports, no errors Softimage XSI - Imports, no errors Houdini - Imports, no errors Lightwave - Imports, no errors Blender - Imports, no errors Sketchup - Does not support .OBJ by default.
Versions of applications used for testing: Maya 2012 x64 Cinema 4D R13.016 Softimage XSI 10.0.422.0 x64 Houdini 11.0.469 Lightwave 11.0.1 Blender 2.64.0 Google Sketchup 8.0.15158
Note that exchange formats imports correctly with no errors, as shown above, the UV coordinates are intact, materials stays applied on the models, but they are blank in most cases and needs to be reconfigured in desired application, meaning shading, reflection, texture maps need to be tweaked. Only native format .max has everything ready for rendering right away.
