Description

Plugin for Autodesk® Alias® to generate tires of various sizes for Cars and Motorcycles.

The plug-in is a convenient way to create automotive tires of various sizes by specifying industry standard notations, i.e. Witdth in MM/aspect ratio Rim diameter in INCH. By default the tire size is set to 205/65R15. The resulting Tire would have the pivot in the center of the tire, so that it can be placed accurately to the correct wheel center locations. To make the data lighter, threads are mimicked using a bump map texture.

The plug-in can also generate motorcycle tires of various sizes.
