Speed Modeling Challenge #41- Hardware Stores

Postby Rich O Brien » Sat Jun 11, 2011 4:21 pm

Challenge is around the 'Hardware Store' theme so you know the rules, if not read below.



The rules:

- 30 minutes maximum modeling time

- Unlimited preparation time for thinking, sketching, researching but NOT FOR MODELING

- Community will vote for favorite submission at competition end

- Maximum of 3 entries are allowed

- Please provide a Wireframe or Hidden Line image, an Untextured image and a Textured image of your model (800x600 Maximum)

- SketchUp output only

- Please be considerate to members with slower connections when submitting images (800x600)

- Any texturing should be done within the 30 minutes

- As enthusiastic as some of you are about rendering, kindly refrain from posting any renderings in the gallery as they could solicit votes, remember this is about modeling, not rendering

- Have fun!

Competition closes on June 27th at 9pm GMT

DIY related. So tools, gardening, painting etc. Not electronics. I'd suggest keeping your entries low to improve your chances also ;)

That's pretty detailed for 30 minutes mate, I could not do that, I'm humbled.

One issue, 'Cutter' has 2 T's.

Well it's all done except for the cutter to the symmetry of (simple)
+ plug-ins and most importantly the full content of the model in my head
(well as the name, then it can be perverted as you like :fro: )

Guys,

The rules state that....

- Please be considerate to members with slower connections when submitting images (800x600)

These large images are not allowed. So either resize or move to the Gallery.

Please everyone read the rules :thumb:

Here's a waffle iron.
I used Amorph, Curviloft and EEbyVector, but could probably made it just as fast with SU native tools.
I did "cheat" by testing out the waffle pyramids before starting the clock though, to find the best way to make them.

I think the waffle iron should be DQ. I've never seen a waffle iron like that at Home Depot. .Williams/Sanoma. . . Maybe. . . . :mrgreen:

jk. . great models so far.

Well, here is a waffle "proof". That's how they are in Norway ;)

It won a design price in 89, and I used to have one before.

Here's my bit for the competition. Finished dot on the 30. Could not texture it the way i wanted to. (Lesson Learnt: Do not apply smooth before applying materials :oops: ) Not a very clean model, but i never can model as cleanly in such a short time...! The grass cutter is insane.. i could not model that wheel in a day...!!

Thanks for the nice comments about my work. Always wanted to learn to airbrushing
but for now, airbrush their own design "Airogra-B"
29 minutes + fredo scale + round corners + pipe along path

Perhaps limiting entries to 3 or less and a mandatory screenshot of Fredo's SU Clock for each entry might encourage more participation. Great work by everyone so far. :thumb:

if someone wants to cheated - he will use Photoshop and no clock will not help. I believe in these competitions importantly honesty with himself and the forum users. Honesty - the guarantee of victory ... I'm in front of each model (for competition) practiced and prepare from 2 to 4 hours, studied photography, drawn in a vector, find ways of drawing in sketchup and already after model with a clean slate, knowing what should be done to achieve a result

Nobody is suggesting that the timing is wrong but 12 last time and 4 already in this one could be seen as too much.
The rules allow it but it cost you the win last time.
One excellent entry will trump multiples every time as the votes get split.

Sorry Anthony, didn't intend that toward you at all. Your stuff is awesome, mate. I was certainly not implying you were being dishonest. Just offering a suggestion to make the challenge more fun and garner more participation. Sorry to clutter up the thread. Mods, feel free to delete any non challenge banter.

I'm going to come off as the boring old pedantic fart here, but the reality is if you read the rules, as they have been for a long time, only mukul.ar has a legal entry.

Rules is rules, as Rich pointed out earlier, can people read them again.
The wireframe, for example, is there for a reason, you can see much more of how the model has been built.

I just get the same image. and the rules actually ask for three images.
- Please provide a Wireframe or Hidden Line image, an Untextured image and a Textured image of your model (800x600)

His model is untextured so I see no point in him posting an "untextured" and a "textured" that both look the exact same.

And I see nothing wrong with him combining the hidden line with the other shots. :roll: Sure, if you want to really keep it to the book you could disqualify him but seriously, this is just a fun little competition. ;)
