Just won the 'Who is Least Competitive Championships' where trying to win will make you lose. Trying to lose makes you win which makes you lose. Not trying at all makes you lose which makes you win which makes you lose.

My first entry as well...I had fun with soap skin bubble plugin. It may not be the most comfortable chair ever, but I'm sure a Shaker would be proud of it. :mrgreen:

You are going for comfort there David. Those and your weenie chair look very comfortable, that is unless the weenies were cooked first :lol:
Good job.

I like your PushPin Chair. You actually ought to pursue that design. You'd sell a ton of them!

Hanging chair. Took about 24 minutes. Chain looks messy in wireframe... forgot to remove the path :) Left the model in for more interesting shadows.

Re: Speed Modelling Challenge #18 My Crazy Chair

Postby Ecuadorian » Mon Oct 19, 2009 11:55 pm

Ok, here's my process:

First, it occured to me that it would be cool to have a chair that could raise more than a normal chair so I could check the street view through my high window while working at the PC. Then I thought: Perhaps the chair should also be able to walk and take me to the streets. A couple days later it dawned to me: Why not a Star Wars walker chair?

So I found some reference images of the AT-ST walker, and even a blueprint. However, knowing my skill level (or lack thereof) I knew I could not finish it in 30 minutes if I took the simplification decisions while modeling in SketchUp. I needed to decide how to simplify the design before starting to model. The idea needed to be very clear before even touching SketchUp.

Today I found the chance to do a sketch of a simplified AT-ST walker chair while waiting in line in the bank. Let's see what I can model in the next 30 minutes... (nervous)

I recorded the whole modeling process, from the moment I posted the sketch here to when I posted the results. The time is the local time, which is GMT -5.


I see that the 640x470 images I posted were scaled down by the forum software. I have just tried posting two in 640x640 (exported as 1280x1280 in SU to have thinner lines), a former "magic size" that never got scaled here, but now it's being scaled, too :evil:. So here are a couple hosted in Imageshack.us:
(Plz change the current forum style for the Xand style)
EDIT: Images are now attached to this forum (Thanks, Gaieus :thumb:)

neat miguel.. i had to watch it twice because the first time i got hung up on watching the tool selection in the toolbar.. looks like a weird instrument being played or something..
of all the chairs posted so far, i definitely want to try yours out the most :D

[i think if you don't place the pictures in line, you can then click on them and be taken to their proper size. at least it works like that in this thread

Also, I have now changed the thumbnail size to 640 pixels so let's see if that fits in without scrolling.

Nice model ultimatez, but if you check the rules renders are not allowed (i deleted the render from your post.) Feel free to post it in the gallery after the voting is finished.
