    Since the addition of the Advance Modeler in Swift3D v4.0 and higher, I've actually been using the vertex methods afforded to me by that portion of the program much like I would do a low-poly car design/model within 3ds max... but instead of quads, you're dealing with triangles all of the time. Slight workflow adjustment.

    After looking over at SwiftDev, I swore they had a car tutorial written by BlinkOK up for a while... but I couldn't locate it. They had the tire tutorial up. For what it's worth, their is a training CD by one of the members here and there, an awesome member named Rainman, that made a training CD available for download... I'd say check it out.

    But back to the low-poly models, I've used similar tutorials to this or something similar.

    I'll keep looking around because there's plenty of methods for attacking this. Some people create a plane, sub-divide, then alter the points to create a mesh to form parts of the car. Some people shape primitives into shapes and create parts of the object then combine to make a final file.

    Or some people just create as they go. It's all based on your tendencies... I tend to use the plane method more and more lately.

    btw... welcome to Flashkit

    lol. I never finished that Lexus. Trying to get curves for the fenders and smoothing made me find a new religion based on beer and rage.

    Ive been working on a car. I just built it like you build a real car. I made it in small parts and piced it together.
