Spider Coffee Bot v2 – ‘The Rhino Strikes Back’

Need a robot that will slay your enemies and bring you coffee at the same time? Introducing the coffee bot: All machine, All caffeine. I made this model to be 3d printed.

The previous model I made with Rhino 3d only printed 3 parts, the dish, a couple legs and the head. I don’t know what happened but I’m too frustrated with Rhino to mess with it anymore. It’s probably not rhino’s fault, but my inexperience with CAD based NURBs modelers. The model was remade from scratch using Blender. It took about 4 hours to make this. It is a solid single mesh.  With a few minor adjustments to the legs,  this thing could be animated.

I’m much happier with the remake and I’m %100 confident that it print out correctly.

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.

The Coffee Spider Bot (Concept art)

Concept Art for the coffee spider bot. This robot delivers coffee in seconds will satisfy all you coffee needs.

This concept art is for a 3d printing project. I needed to create a machine that would be too impractical. A ginormous robot spider that’s sole purpose is to make and deliver coffee fits the bill.

The 3d model is almost done. I will upload it soon.

I finally got my spaceship 3d printed, I will upload some photos soon.

Daily Painting No.53 – Coffe Cup and Ball (Still Life)

still life coffecup sphere ball

I bought this cool coffee cup a few days ago and I’ve been desiring to paint it. For humor I stuck my cheep elephant toy in the cup (just in case you wondering what that thing is, it looks as abstract in real life as it does in the cup). I had some issues with the small cast shadow coming down from the cup to the sphere. I think my next still life will feature more spheres. I painted this from scratch in Adobe Photoshop with a wacom tablet. Time spent on painting a little under 1  hour and 30 mins.

Note to self: there is a small mistake in the handle that needs to be fixed.
