CNET Editors' reviewThis Flash-based program helps you design your dream motorcycle, though this demo is a bit more limited than we'd like. 3D Chop Shop's polished interface displays a large rendering of the chopper in the middle of the screen, with buttons that let you zoom in on particular parts of the bike. Unfortunately, this demo includes only one stock body template and won't let you save, capture, or print the customization fixes you make. Easily accessible drop-down menus let you choose new parts for your bike, including headlights, handlebars, fenders, and wheels. You can of course change the color scheme of your bike or apply a few bundled designs, but some of the more advance paint-job options also are inaccessible until you register. On the plus side, the app creates an HTML page containing all your custom parts, complete with links to a motorcycle parts company. We should note 3D Chop Shop's extensive memory requirements and high CPU load may bog down older systems, so you may want to save this one for a more powerful machine. Gear heads who've always dreamed of designing their own choppers will potentially enjoy this program, but we wish the trial version gave you more than just a taste.
From Virtual Cycles:
3d Chop Shop is software that allows you to design high-end custom motorcycles in fully interactive 3d. Chop Shop gives you the power to work with eight stock motorcycle styles and over 300 parts and accessories to build and visualize the bike of your dreams. The program also includes advanced paint features that enable you to work with a color palette, gradients, flames, and many other templates. Chop Shop even imports custom graphics that you create, which wrap around the 3d models for a truly custom paint job.
Use preset camera views or controls to rotate the bike, pan the camera, and zoom. Finish up by exporting a screenshot of your creation or by saving the project for future access.
