Drill - 827 mining droid by gizmoaseth Drill - 827 mining droid by gizmoaseth
i made this model for a international 3d competition, sponsored by Boxx workstations, (hence the name).
the objective of the competition was to create a mining dorid, that is a self guided robot that has 3 operating modes, mine, flight and attack mode.
this model was done in 3d max, and the textures were done in photoshop.
i have spent allot of time and though in to this piece, and over all i like it very much ,
i planned this droid so that it will be a mass production, very crude, massive, like a catapillar, that will have no problem drilling ,and mining in the harshest enviorments, even his head and sensors were planned to take a beating and still function.

hope you guys like it

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-10-17
Drill - 827 mining droid by ~gizmoaseth shows a level of complexity and functionality that one would expect from a real, purchasable droid. The apparent time, thought and planning that went into this model make it an even more impressive 3D render. ( Suggested by theRenegade and Featured by bluespeed9 )

I like desigh of this robot. =) But, what for two miniguns are necessary for the miner?

well, it was a part of a competition,
the brief required the robot to have defense mechanisms,
if it was up for me, i would not have put these guns on the robot

so i agree with you
but it was done a long time ago, :)
thanks for the comment, cheers

Seriously though, this model and it's textures are great! This robot looks bad ass, I love the different modes you gave it, very creative!

Go to Pixar and demand that they let you design for them. If they don't, I will beat their brains out with a lead pole, because obviously aren't using them if they don't hire you.

.....Sorry, I'm a mite overzealous.

well if it was internatinal 6ht or 7th is a good place, i'm sure this experience will help you out the next time, and you'll get a better place.... a boxx computer... uhm, sounds like it wasn't that cool, or was it?

Definitely deserves a daily deviation. Its so nicely designed and functional. Where do you learn to do this kind of modelling, Id like to learn!

Great work. Keep it going.

i respect effort. no matter how completely awesome the design may be, i respect effort. no matter how well done the textures and details are done, i respect effort. no matter how freakin awesome the transformations look (especially since they work), i respect effort. that's why this is a fav in the highest sense of the word. reallly, really awesome

fantastic work, and a well deserved DD. Do you think you could make a short movie of how it transforms? I'm sure it would look awesome in motion!

i tried to make the movie, the animation is ready by the way .. but my comptuer is too weak to pull it off , beacuse this model is very high ploy...
maybe one day...

mm, how much power would you need then?

I've only used LW7 for 3D animation. Problem is, ther version I got is only for macOS9, and I'm running OSX, so I had to open it in classic mode (OS9, basically) but it doesn't seem to share RAM that well. I've only animated a few basic things really, nothing too detailed.

I either need to upgrade LW to 8 (or wait for 9) or upgrade my RAM...or probably both. :P

ANyway, it would be great to see your creation in motion. I'll look out for it if you ever do get it work ;)

well, im actually using a PC and not a Mac.. and the problem is my hardware is just not suitable to handle that enormous complexity of a model..
if you are using MAC i dont think that you will be able to get out the most out of your lightwave..

:icondtownley1:
dtownley1 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
yeah, I think it's one of the few things PC's are good for, high-end 3D work. Upgrade it to a ludicrous speed, and you can sit back and relax :P
But I'm not doing anything as complex as your work right now anyway. If I had a version for OSX the increase in performance would be clearly noticeable. Still, a G5 would be nice *sigh*

I hear that LW9 is going to operate very differently though, with improved subpatching, completely new texturing abilities, and a much more forgiving modeling system. It's looking very interesting. I have no idea when it will come out though, or even if it's already out.

This got a Daily Deviantion award a couple of months ago... doesn't make sense for it to have one again.

Just wondering what the deal is.

It is a great 3D design none the less.
