Applying what you've learned

Now that you know how to use Blender's Modifiers, it's time to put your knowledge to the test. This exercise is designed to help you utilize modifiers in a real-world modeling task.

Your challenge

Starting with a reference image of your choice (perhaps one of these?), model a wheel with modifiers. The wheel can be any type - old time Model T wheel or a shiny new sports car wheels are both acceptable - but it must include a tire, rim, and spokes of some kind. In addition, you must use at least two different modifiers. Once you've finished, upload your model to sketchfab.com and submit it here for grading! (Big orange button at the top right of this page). Before you submit make sure you've met each of the criteria found in the "Rules" tab. Above all, have fun and push yourself!
