Speed Modelling Chalenge #7 Original Robot

Speed Modelling Chalenge #7 Original Robot

Postby remus » Mon Jan 26, 2009 2:11 pm

Original Robot aka. a robot of your own design.

-30 mins max modelling time
-unlimited prep time (thinking, sketching, browsing the internet etc. NO MODELLING!)
-I will ask people to judge the models on time taken to model, quality of the model and originality of the idea.
-Please try and keep your submission to one post in this topic, i.e. make a post and use it for all your prep work as well, just edit it each time you need to add stuff.
-Multiple entries are also allowed, keep it sensible though.
-Please provide a wire frame shot of your model when you post.
New rules:
-Sketchup output only (and as much as i know you love rendering your models, it would be appreciated if you could hold of posting them in the gallery until after the comp.)
-Max of 4 shots of your model.

Finishes 9th of february, 6 PM GMT.

Obviously I won't be competing, as I am no match for some of the people (well ... most) who hang around here, but I must say: cool challenge! This one's bound to yield some cool 'n fun results!

Stoppel ... you ought to be modelling already. Get to it! :mrgreen:

Well, okay then. This took 28 minutes. Looks like cr@p, but it was fun to do. :)

I give you: Malodor, the Sad Drunk Bot! He'll be featuring in my graphic novel "Les Farts De Malodor".

DARBOS

Background story . . .

30 Years ago When I lived in Canada as a missionary my companion and I had these little wind-up robots that we called Darbos. They would walk across the table and do battle with each other. It was fun! This was my little guy. he even carried a little Canadian Flag!

EDIT__Sorry my bad. here's the SU output only.

*points at rules*

Cool model though, impressive amount of detail for 30 mins.

edit: looking at your model again i think i was a bit hasty in saying this was rendered. Sorry david.

Nice one David. You are picking up speed. I can even hear the Canadian National Anthem in the background.

Bruce, nice one indeed. I am sure you did not model it to scale or your triangulated faces would have not closed in. :D Great work.

Remus... great concept. Got me and my wife laughing. :lol:

Dot

Postby boofredlay » Wed Jan 28, 2009 2:28 am

I call her Dot and it is playtime :D

27 min and some change.
Ruby's used:
Sphere, this one saves time. Two clicks and you have a sphere.
Tools on surface (circles).
Pipe along path and FFD for the antenna.
Subdivide and Smooth for the cube(s).

What took the longest was placing the rivets (small spheres) as I had already rotated the head and did not have a good plane to work with. So I had to manually place most of them.

I keep telling myself I am not going to enter these contests because I have been very busy but I just cannot resist a challenge. Plus this was a Killer Subject!

The Judge.
This is an Plug-in judge (see the cord) with eyes all around to see all the sides of the problem.
It took me about 18 minutes. I used Tools On Surface, mirror and FAR and bezier.

This entry is based on an old school model. This particular speciman was designed specifically to cut trees and firewood and melting wicked witches of the Western Region. His drawbacks are is that he tends to rust up a lot --lack of oil. He lacks a heart. . .so he says, but he is a bit of cry-baby. He also spends too much time hanging with scarecrows, wimpy lions and dilusional little girls in red shoes. He does like the little dog tho.

Here's my first entry - The Greebles (Rubies in Action) I used a lot of just standard tools and shapes for the robot, with the protrude ruby for the scene. I regretfully quit at exactly 30 minutes.

Dalek off Dr Who (don't watch it, I just happened to watch an episode with them in it and I found them Hilarious!). I admit that it took me around an hour, but once I had started i couldn't stop, i was having too much fun!

I am curious as to why you posted this? It is not an original robot and it took you an hour, over the time limit. Post it in the gallery if you want to show it. ;)
