    I don't know much about creating a Jbeam but i can tell you that Jbeams are made up of 2 main things. Note: this is basic information!

    Beams and Nodes
    • Think about Beams and Nodes like Connect the Dots except the Nodes are dots and the Beams are the lines.
    Beams: Connect to Nodes to form a structure that holds itself together (That is until the weaker Beams break off (Doors, Hood, Etc)) *Think about it like the bones in your body*

    Nodes: Are like little bubble that are used as points or edges to connect Beams together.


    Example 1

    See the Beams connecting the Nodes together.

    Example 2

    One or more of the weak beams has broken (In this case the beams connecting the door)

    ^^^^^
    P.S I know the green lines everywhere look confusing and overwhelming but they're not! All they are, are Beams that are connected to Nodes which when broken stretch infinitely to make sure they always stay connected (in a way)


    I'm sorry and wish i could help more but this is all i know, hopefully this clears it up for you a little.

    Also! I recommend that you Jbeam something easier then a vehicle to start off, for example a rectangle or square. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

    You could use the roamer jbeam as a base and go on from there, its the most similar jbeam wise
