Transforming cube

Hey everyone :smiley:

I’m not a huge fan of the new Transformer movies, but I do like one thing about them…the robots. I marvel at all the work it must have took to create all the animations and modelling for the robots and their transformations from vehicle mode to robot.

Anyway, that inspired me to do this in Blender:

This is not eyecandy, it’s just a test to demonstrate the concept. Yeah, this little clip is lame, but I’m going to keep going and make more transformations!

Please tell me what you think and enjoy!

Cool start and nice concept!

I’ve played with transformations in the past as well, they’re quite fun!

I think the main thing with making cool transformations is detail, detail, and more detail. The more flippy switches, rotatey gears, and moving parts you have the cooler it will be :slight_smile:

Keep playing with it! I’m looking forward to seeing more.

Also, for future reference, this might have been better placed in the “tests” area of the forum.

You’re right I wasn’t thinking there lol

Thanks for the encouragement dude!
