Bugatti EB 9.81 Gravity Racer

This design was originally part of 3D Fundamentals 2 at Art Center in 2012 but I've always wanted to fully finish the design in all its depth of detail.

Based on the XGR racing series where major automotive corporations were invited to compete in an exebition series to encourage young automotive engineers in a mentorship environment, my design is a "What If" scenario. What if Bugatti joined the XGR series, what would their racer look like and how would it work.

She's ready!

With a great tutor and some self learning from the modo community, I've been able to completely rebuild in proper quad subD quality poly from my original entry portfolio concept electric motorcycle from 2010. Hope you like.

My first gig!

I finished my first gig! Kind thanks to David for letting me share. YouTube video of final animation prior to post production music and graphics in the link.

The Nautilus' Lamp

Lights on, off. Total render 20 minutes. 1080p. Finally got rid of the pink. Leather needs some love...next!

UM maps

UV mapping in modo is pretty straight forward. The UI was slapped together to test UV so readability and modal graphics could come after the build is completed.

Doubt vs. Research

A couple people expressed doubts about my packaging research. The mannequin is 5' 9", blue outline is a CBR 1000RR 2012. I hope this clears things up.

Omni module bay

Oh boy, my bike's battery chamber was a real bear to do. As with all work on this project, meshes are sub-D compliant with all physically single part being a single mesh - no cheats for the learning process.

Hardest parts done

The hardest parts are done. About a week more and it should be ready for animation and studio shots...not.

Modo slow

I wanted to post the head lamp because it was really hard to build. Hours in Rhino = Days in modo. Sigh.

Explosion View

My Nautilus motorcycle presented in explosion view. This was a quick one taking advantage of Rhinoceros's perspective viewport's Pen mode directly printed to a bitmap file. Pretty effective once the 3D components are laid out correctly.

Modo driving practice

Practicing modo driving. Rebuilding my nautilus motorcycle, very slow but hopefully speed will improve.
