Heikki Naulapää had shared something about Ram 1000 that
This project was his one of the most difficult tasks while studying in Lahti. It was very tough to design a complete motorbike as he didn’t have any experience from 3D modeling. Even, he had not got any experience of designing vehicles when starting this project. Therefore, it made the task more challenging.
Modeling and Design he did himself, but rendering was done by one of his flat mate and current CG artist Heikki Anttila.
Let’s know something about the Designer:
Heikki Naulapää is absolutely a finnish designer, he has done graduation from Vehicle Design department of Royal College of Art, London in 2004.
