Lotus Exige s 2010
1/8th Scale Lotus Exige s 2010 created for my Final Major Project For BA (Hons) Modelmaking. Using a varied skill set i created this replica automotive product model from technical drawings. Using automotive chavant i sculpted the main mass of bodywork and Recaro seats, and with silicone tooling created the final pull in polyester GRP. Other aspects of the model included the use of 3D CAD software such as Rhino and 3DS to model components for 3d Print and further mould replications. These components included; Alloys, Bridgestone tyres, Rear diffuser and Brembo calipers. Laser usage and vacuum forming allowed me to create accurate lens caps for rear and front working lights, windows and aspects such as the spoiler. This Project sole purpose was to illustrate my skills as the versatile modelmaker i have become through professional practice and dedication to 3 Dimensional contemporary design.
