Great stuff mate, and good render.


Thanks! I'm happy to share it...I put a copy of the .skp in my public Dropbox folder. You can download it here:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3842145/snow-trac_final.skp

For anyone not familiar with Dropbox, it is a way to store files of any type and size in the cloud and sync them between multiple computers. I use it all the time, even with SU files. It is free to sign up and you'll get 2GB of storage space.

If you use this link to sign up, you get both of us will get an extra 250MB of storage space:

Wow!

I have question though: is the mountain background a flat pic or an HDRI?

Thanks for sharing your fantastic model! Don't know if you're concerned about file size, but I played with parts of your model and the results are shown below. And I only worked with the tires and the drive cog, I could easily get it down even further. Like I said, I don't know if file size concerns you that much, just thought I'd throw it out there.

I used an HDRI probe to illuminate the model, but masked it out.
The background you see is a flat pic added in PS.

Thanks...I wasn't too worried about it because I have a pretty good PC and it was orbiting fine with the shadows off.
I'm sure that a lot of the arcs are much higher resolution than they needed to be...I'm still learning how much I can get away with in rendering before seeing facets.

I didn't change any of the arcs, just broke down the wheels and cog into smaller components. I like a lot of detail in my models and I'm always fighting to keep the file size down, so I've been teaching myself every trick in the book. I sometimes download large models from the warehouse just to see how much I can knock down the file size, for practice. I just naturally started doing this with your model out of habit I suppose :lol:

This is what I've learned as well over the last year.

Hello,
I just discovered this thread, very good work! :thumb:

I want to scratchbuild a 1:48 scale Snow-Trac model but can't find any good plan or blueprint, only bad drawings in original manuals :(

Do you still have your original sources used for building this sketchup model?
Or please could you share it again (your file is no longer available after 8 years...), it would be better for seeing all the details you put in it?

Many thanks in advance, keep up the good work!
Phil
