Coffee Spider Bot 3d Model WIP

coffeebotmodelwip

Here is the 3d model I made, using a NURBs based modeler called Rhino 5. The coffee spider robot is almost ready to serve its brew to the masses.

I’ve been a polygon modeler and have done very little with NURBs ( I would use them mostly for lofts and then convert them to polygons). They feel so foreign to me. After 5 hours of figuring this stuff out, I was able to assemble this 3d model.  If this was a poly model, it would be twice as detailed but I’m required to use NURBs for this assignment so I’m feeling a little crippled right at the moment. I’m required to use Rhino for this project so I have no choice. I have no doubt that Rhino is a powerful tool, I just don’t know how to do everything with it.

The spider bot should make a fine sculpture when it is 3d printed.

Some sketches I did in the ‘Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone’ DS game . For the life of me I can’t figure out how to export my painting to the SD card so I took snapshots with my phone.(I will try to re-upload less blurry ones in the future) I will have a mini review of the instructional game in a few days.

FantasyBLOCK: Having Artist’s Block? Theres a app for that (I just made it)

Artblock

I was needing inspiration as I was having wonderful art block. Then I remembered I bought this book a while back called “Fantasy Genesis: A Creativity Game for Fantasy Artist by Chuck Lucas. You role dice and you match up the numbers to different words in different categories with the dice roles. As a exercise you attempt to draw what the words give you.The only problem is that you need DnD dice to use it. I lost mine. I looked for generators on the net but they were more geared to characters for RPG games. So I decided to make my own generator. And spent two hours programing this when I probably could of done something elsev (Like play Dark Souls):D. It’s rather rudimentary but it gets the job done. It can be used in conjunction with the book but it’s not required (Although I would recommend checking the book out at least).  You welcome to use it for your own needs if you wish. If you know someone that could benefit with this program, Please share this post with them. If you find this app useful, please like this post.
