mechanical pencil

Still in early modeling stages.


~3k poly

Kinda hard to see the lead at the tip, but then again the whole image looks washed-out…

Render fixed.

Update: body changes and clip added. Some changes to the primitive materials.

Frankly, it’s a bit bland. When I first read the thread header I was expecting something more… mechanical. Maybe modelling a cutout would be more interesting perhaps? Then you can show the springs, tubes, nib assembly etc…

Interesting idea, but I’m still near the bottom of the modelling learning curve.

This pencil looks really awesome. Now, can they come up with a solution to make it so the graphite doesn’t smear if you rub a page of writing against another! My notebooks always end up with grayish clouds of graphite on every page.
