Default wheel tutorial

Hi iīm new to maya and try out the PLE version.

Iīm interressted in modelling an wheel, but i searched an found no tutorial. Can anybody helps me? I found some nice for Lightwave, but when i try out i remarked that some function wonīt be in maya.

So if there exist a tutorial it would great if you can help me.

P.S. i try maya because i will find out if itīs the right software for me

you could use a displacement map/bump map depending on how complicated you want your tyre to be. if you want a tyre that uses geometry then you will have to work a little harder. Can you post a link to the lightwave tutorial? i'm sure we could help you find the equivalent tool in maya.

Here is the link

http://www.rendering.de/nano.cms/Lig...erview&X_id=51

search for "Erstellen einer Auto Felge und Gummireifens"

Itīs a video tut. The ascpet interressting me is the part who he connet two polyīs (the inner and the outerring) to make the spokeīs.

All i found in maya was he merge tools but thatīs not the same.

Anyway i know Lightwave is a great poly modeller (better than maya??).

Or should i find out a tut for nurbs modelling a wheel?

i donīt know the advantages of both.

First at all i need a programm creating 3d logos imported from illustrator files (text and so on) but also for modelling cars bikes or architectur all stuff i would like to build (after hard way learning )
