Introduces the series, discusses the subject (SV1000S), and begins intial work on the wheels after collecting some references.
Moving on with the wheel of the bike, starting on the rim and getting much of the inital topology down.
Continuing work on the rim of the motorcycle, and starting the front brake disc. The video ends with a software crash.
Picking up from the crash, we move on with the brake disc, setting up the ports and connecting the disc all the way around.
After an overview of some collected reference photos, we begin work on the front forks of the bike.
An extension of the fourth episode, with more work on the rim and initial work for the chain gear.
This video begins work on creating reference shapes for the remainder of the bike, allowing us to get a perspective on size.
Begins work on the front cowling, starting with the nose of the bike. One of the identifying surfaces of the SV1000S.
Returning work on the front cowling, wrapping around to the console area where the speedometer will eventually be placed.
Continuing work on the front cowling of the motorcycle, moving down along the side to create the half-fairing beneath the nose.
Moving away from the front cowling, this video starts work on the gas tank of the bike by laying down a curve network for NURBS surfaces.
After realizing that the NURBS technique isn't going to be very quick for the gas tank, we swap over to polygons, shaping the tank out quickly.
This video goes back to the front cowling, creating some screw indentions and starting work on the turn signal.
Continuing work on the turn signal for the SV1000S motorcycle, wrapping up the shape and getting it sent over to the main scene file.
This video continues work on the front cowling of the motorcycle, tweaking out the mirror mounting areas and starting the windshield.
Getting back to the windshield and moving on to the base moutning bracket for the rear view mirrors.
Wrap up for the rear vew mirror mounting bracket and creation for the mirror arm and the mirror itself.
This video begins work on the vents that rest inside the half fairing at the front cowl of the bike.
Cleanup of the cowling vents and intial work for the instrument cluster of the motorcycle in a separate file.
We continue work on the instrument cluster of the motorcylce, adding the tachometer and its needle.
This video goes back to the front cowling, working on the inside where the instrument cluster must be mounted.
The video goes back to work on the front forks, working on the front axis and a few detailing parts.
More work on the forks, including the fork seals and the yoke that connects the forks together.
Going back to work on the fork yoke and adding some pieces to the forks for mounting other components later.
We move on with more work on the gas tank for the bike, as well as the fuel fill cap that rests at the top of the tank.
We begin work on the tail fairing for the bike, as well as the inital geometry for both the primary and passenger seats.
Some cleanup work is done on the seat, as well as some detailing work on the tail fairing.
Continuing with the model, Zak wraps up the headlight lens area and begins work on the housing for the headlamp.
In this episode, Zak cleans up the headlight area of the front cowling and begins work on the headlight lens.
Continuing with the modeling of the SV1000S, this episode continues with the creation and tweaking of the headlamp area, including the lamp frame and the fog lamp.
Moving away from the fog lamp, work begins on the SV1000.s frame, as well as some of the finalization work for the front forks.
We take a look at getting some more detail into the frame of the motorcycle, and deal with a couple of minor technical problems.
A serious rebuild begins on the frame. The topology of the frame receives a massive overhaul.
Continuing with the frame for the bike, you'll see how to start cleaning up the shape and inserting the cross-braces to finally start bringing the frame together.
After cleaning up a couple of problem areas, several of the bevels are put into place, allowing you to see a much more finalized shape.
In this video, you'll see how to make some fine adjustments to overall shape and flow to start to finalize the look and feel of the frame.
Finalization of details of the motorcycle frame and starting to add the primary frame bolts which hold many of the bike components together.
The frame of the motorcyle finally approaches its completed state with a few more bolt recessions, the exhaust bracket, and the mounting cutaway for the kickplate.
This episode moves on and starts creating the intial shape for the bike's right side kick plate. This requires several different elevations and much consideration.
This video takes a step in a new direction as we begin construction of the covering plate that rests atop the forks. The shape comes together fairly quickly.
We actually swing out on a limb and use a Boolean operation (gasp!) to complete the overall shape. With some adjustment, the final result looks very nice!
In this episode we start to finalize the plate at the top of the forks, adding in the bolts and adjustment screws for the front suspension. Detailing on the piece is almost complete.
This episode continues with the plate at the top of the handlebars, adding on the ignition switch and preparing the piece for final placement atop the forks.
We take a look at moving past the cap at the end of the forks. Tweaks to the gas tank and the frame, and the base is laid out for the handlebars.
Demonstrates the creation of the base of the handlebar, grip, and end weight. Also the brake fluid reservoir bracket and the wiring clip.
Creating the brake fluid reservoir, right up through the small metal clip that holds the lid on and the mounting piece on the bottom to connect it to the bracket.
This extended duration episode covers the construction of the kill switch box, including the switch itself, the ignition button, and the wiring housing that runs down to the engine.
This episode pushes the right handlebar a bit further, fixing its scaling and beginning work on the brake lever assembly. Overall length of the handlebar is also shortened.
We continue with the brake lever, creating the actual lever itself. The brake assembly is also detailed, adding brake line hose and clamps to the brake fluid reservoir.
We move on and have a look at the rest of the cockpit area. After mirroring the handlebar assembly, the inner cowling is adjusted and a new windshield is created.
This episode tackles the left side handlebar console, creating the base shape onto which the dimmer for the lights is added.
This one follows the previous, adding on the the shape of the left side console and finalizing it before placing it on the left handlebar.
Starting work on the engine block. Watch how this complex shape is started and the initial shapes start to come to life!
Modeling on the bike's engine block continues. Some tweaks are made to the oil fill reservoir. An oil fill cap is created, and the oil window is laid out.
Work on the underside cowling, so that we don't end up modeling pieces of the engine that we don't really need.
In this episode, work continues with the underside cowling, finishing up the shape for the mounting screw and starting to get a little more of the base structure in place.
Setup of the geometry for the underside cowling. The vent cutaway is created, and the tip of the shape starts to take on the proper form.
Refinements are made to the cutaway and the overall shape is tweaked using NURBS curves as reference.
We pretty much wrap up the underside cowling, and do some finalization work on the rear tail cover body piece, as well as the handle over the rear seat.
This episode begins work on a new piece of the bike's body: the front fender. Most of the shape is created in this video, leaving only a few adjustments here and there.
This episode wraps up construction of the front fender geometry, getting the mounting bolt in place and shaping up the overall contour.
This video begins work on the bike's exhaust can, the exhaust port and baffle on the back, and beginning work on the mounting bolt molding at the front of the muffler.
Continues work on the exhaust system, finishing up the coupling on the end of the exhaust can and adding the bolt-on plate where the exhaust attaches.
Multiple adjustments, making sure that the bike has the appropriate width. We also create the underside of the tail,and a custom fender removal kit.
We go back to work on the handlebars, dealing with the lefthand side including the clutch lever.
