    Stargate

    Yep, you read right. I'm finally calling it done. It feels a bit odd to post a model as a finished project, but my heart and soul has gone into this thing for the last year or so. I have learned so much from modeling it. The funny thing is that if I had to do it all over again now, most of it would probably only take me a week or so.

    As promised, here is the model.

    stargate.blend 30 MB
    (Right click, save as.)

    You can also find it on scifi-meshes.com.

    I only ask that I get credit for the model, and I would be thrilled to see any projects you use it for. Materials aren't all that great, so look at it as a model with no mats, aight?

    [Edit] I just bought my own web hosting service, so now you don't have to deal with Megaupload. Sorry, there's really no material on the iris in this render.




    Front/back AO Warning: Large image, 3000 x 1500.

    [Edit2] There seems to be some demand for the OBJ version of this model, so I decided to make a torrent for it since it is close to 140 MB. I'll be seeding it for the next couple of days or so. stargateobj.torrent (Again: right click, save as.)

    The OBJ is offered as is, with no guarantees. What Blender's OBJ exporter spat out is what you get.

    zOMG




    I think that's the most detailed Blender model I've seen yet. I would comment further but I'm at a loss for words.

    Credit where credit it's due: awesome piece.

    That's a lovely model!
    I'll have to check out the .blend file tomorrow.
    I really like non-organic models with lots of little extrusions, cuts, and other small details.

    Unless my eyes are deceiving me, the model looks like it has more than a billion tris.

    Walk cycle with Mancandy! I'm taking a break from serious modeling now to develop some animation skills.

    [Edit] @Mpan3: I'm not sure of the tris, but quads and tris together count 1,169,355.

    Great work man. Hehehe, I'm gonna have to wait till I've built my new pc before I can open that blend file - Blender dies on this laptop when I try go out of wireframe. What gfx card you using to work on that?

    Also is that model animatable?

    wow. I am amazed. I have kinda stood by the WIP because it was the only rated thread in that section. 5 stars. I'll be glad to put that in one of my animations I am working on. like, a cameo or something because that is probably one of the most detailed objects I have ever seen.

    Yep, I modeled it with animation in mind. Each chevron has multiple lights that are controlled by a slider on layer 20, and the iris also has a control slider. That way all you have to do is keyframe how on or off the lights are, and how open or shut the iris is. Chevron 7 is the only one that moves in dial sequences, and that only straight up and down, so it didn't get a slider. Neither did the symbol ring, but animating that is just simple rotation IPOs.

    My gfx card is Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT AGP 8x. Not the greatest, but I can rotate the model fairly smoothly in solid mode.

    As I said be fore, great work! Does it include the wormhole? I'll have more to comment on tomorrow when I download it.

    I think I will provide the wormhole and event horizon later as separate files. Thanks for reminding me.

    A beautiful model! So detailed that even my system crawls to crash opening that blend file!

    Cheers,
