I finally finished rendering an animation of a machinery model:
Hope you enjoyed it
I shared a full modell of this machine on blendswap: http://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/66794
Now let me tell you something about the model muhahah,
I modeled it from scratch starting with the pump and adding shapes and mecaniscs where I thought they looked nice. After this was done I added in a long chain of constraints to allow the entire machine to be controlled by 1 empty.
If you keyframe this one empty the entire machine will follow it’s lead. This makes it very easy ad fun to play around with the machinery and I foudn it rather mesmerizing too spend hours just looking at the gears roll about.
After I did this I added a few commonly used cycles materials to give it a nice look and started rendering…
and that took 6 days, day and night poor poor computer, and poor poor me for not being able to blender for such a long time! I was doomed to spend time on homework instead while my computer slowly build a 30fps animation frame by frame. But I think the result was worth every second of it + my teachers are very happy I finally spend some time on my math.
Please Comment and critique this work!
I am always looking to improve so do not be affraid to share your hones opinion!
Cheers and hopefully enjoy
