DrSlumper: My first car wheel design, TOOLER 20" Wheel.

One of the things that I´m doing this last week at work are the machining of some model of custom car wheels for a custumer. We must to do one model of each design in scale 2:1 of half wheel (the external side). Because it I must to work with the 3D models sended by the custumer to get the draft drawings and CNC programs for  turning it on a CNC leathe and the CAM programs to the machining centers. 

This is the reason because I try to design on Solidworks a wheel that I have some time around my head, a wheel with a spanner keys as a spokes. This idea was in my head long time ago and I was very surprised when wathing an "American chopper" episode the people of Orange County Choppers build a corporative bike for SnapOn. And the Teutuls make a pair of wheels quite similar than 
my concept.

At same time I "played" doing some renders, my rendering knowledge is too short but the end result has been better than I expected (After hours of trial-error) and I edited the rendered pictures with Gimp.

I hope you like it.
