  1. Hello

    I am a student at Bournemouth University studying 3D animation and modelling. I am in my final stage and am looking for particpants in my research project. All you would need to do is watch a video, which you can find on when you search for "chassis survey" and answer some questions which are attached. Once you have completed the survey please email it back to me.

    I have uploaded the survey onto youtube which should make things easier than before.

    Many thanks for your help!

    Kind regards



  2. Yes I am using 3ds max to model and animate. One of the cars is using a set up of my design to automate the cars reaction to the terrain. The other uses a plug-in at some cost. I am comparing the differences.

    To compress the video down to a reasonable size I have used Divx. Which can be downloaded at

  3. Hello

    I am a student at Bournemouth University and I study 3D modelling and animation. I have modeled two Lotus Esprits (as seen below) and am now in the process of animating them. As part of my dissertation I have designed a survey looking at anomalies that can be seen when the wheels on the chassis go over bumps. I would be very greatful if you could download the survey using the link below and email the completed word document back to me.


  4. I am using 3DS Max too.

    I plan to rig the chassis so that the suspension will work and then compare my rig to plug-ins for Max that will simulate the effect.

    I plan to put the wheels and also the engine in and then show an animation of it driving around.

    Your model looks excellent

    What information did you use to make it?

    Thanks very much for your help

    Kind Regards


  5. I am a student studying a degree in 3D animation at Bournemouth. As part of my project I would like to model the chassis of a Lotus Esprit.

    Would anyone have or know where I can get any detailed dimensions and plan drawings of the chassis? or if you were working on the chassis of your car near to Bournemouth could I come and see it?

    Many Thanks
