Background: This is a recent project I started, modelling some armoured vehicles as a professional project. For health reasons I’m unlikely to be able to get a conventional job, so I earn cash from home. One way is building models in Blender and rigging them in Poser; there’s a market for these if they are well made and well rigged, and I am very good at rigging them to make them easy to use in Poser. Note that some of the edges look rather sharp, they won’t look like that in Poser; the way the smoothing works is different to Blender and I am modelling with Poser in mind because I have to for this project.
So, this is set of vehicles I will be selling, hopefully ready by the end of September. Since rigging a set of tracks is a pain, I am basing them all on the same tracked chassis so I only have to rig the tracks once. Rigging tracks for Poser is probably much harder than rigging them for Blender, though I did it after advice from the person who invented the method I used, so it was easier than working it out myself would have been… :evilgrin:
The vehicles being based on a common chassis also reflects reality, as armies have done this many times in the past; it’s not always done, but it can save a lot of money if a suitable base is designed. So that out of the way, here are the current state-of-play images:
