Can this be drawn with Rhino?

I wonder if this pickup truck can be drawn with Rhino?

Asking for a friend :wink:

Hm, that method looks a bit über complex…

Rhino should only be used to create (aesthetically) pleasing things.

@RIL Somebody built it?

Yes, Tesla of course. I figured that this design anti-.pattern Cybertruck is pictured all over the Internet by now. Shockingly ugly. Looks like a mental clear-cut forest.

i can remember seeing a nice anecdote summarizing your clear-cut forest.

Pretty sure they used the free version of TurboCad. You gotta control costs anyway you can.

I’m not sure what you mean?

In Swedish I use the idom; “mentalt kalhygge” to try to depict the mindset of, for example, the architecture typical of the Soviet Communist era. With this Tesla monster I see something similar.

A “mental clear-cut forest” is an idiom which would be quite clear in Swedish. But perhaps a better word would be “lack of soul”.

Or emptiness. Nihilism. Desolate clear-cut design reflecting a desolate mind, or soul. Void of beauty. Not void of “expression” though, because the expression of a dark or empty soul is also an expression, even a strong one. It’s just not beauty. Shuddering.

I think you get the idea.

Appreciate your description Rolf…Enjoy the weekend.

Hi @Brenda Did you mean: aesthetically

Maybe one could even make some structural calculation on very complex curved bulletproof windows…

It seems they put all the focus on the steel bodywork. But “it didn’t go through” … :cold_sweat:

They could’ve invested more time in playing with modifiers. This is simply a disappointment. Anyway, it musk not take time to model this in Rhino.

  1. Make a cuboid
  2. Go in the right view
  3. Make the profile
  4. Split the cuboid
  5. Tadaaa! :slight_smile::+1:t3:

This is a good example why curvature matters on cars and what makes the absence of it to a design. Although, when looking at the overall form its actually not that bad. I even like it somehow. It just looks poorly made!

It’s ‘stealth’ …don’t ya know…:wink:

pretty exact a hundred years after streamline,
we have finaly dived into the era of straightline.
