Bunnie reminded me with his last post that I hadn't uploaded this one.  It's been my desktop at work for a while now.  For some reason windows displays a version that still has quite a bit of "jaggies" in it.  I'm guessing it's due to an inability to display all info or size or whatever... anyhow, here it is!

Well, here's my first ever 'printed' item. This is going to be a present for my brother.
Story behind 'Nosnope': When my brother and I were younger we'd play video game matches against each other, and one of those games would be Halo. A match type we would do the most often was where we could only use sniper rifles. As such, every once in a great while we'd get a kill without using the scope and so we'd say 'no scope'. Well one day I messed up saying it and said 'no snope', well lets just say it stuck and we always said it after that. We even agreed at one point to where if we ever created a company together it'd be called Nosnope. This year I decided to do a bit of a gag gift for him for Christmas and made an 'official' logo and put it on a mug. I ordered the mug from DeviantArt, and it looks pretty good. The only downside is that in certain lighting conditions you can see where the printing area is (normally you cant see it).

Mug:

Ha ha. Nice one. It's a great present and the story just makes it all the more fun.

I particularly identify with it because the name Strangebloke comes from my early video gaming too Smile

Few random things I've made since the start of the semester.

Logo for my roommate's senior design project, the professor comments on all of his reports that he really likes the logo:

Diagram for the same roommate, don't ask me what this is though, I have no clue:

A friend of mine was making a mobile app that tracks a person's sleep for his research, I made a logo:

Another logo for a different friend. The group she's in changed their name so she needed a new version of the logo:

**All of these were made in Blender. Yes it'd probably make more sense if I had made them in Photoshop or a vector program, but I didn't. Very Happy **

All made with Blender?  Wow, I'm impressed!

@XRay: I really like how that turned out! Smile

Well, decided to see how fast I can model a car without sacrificing detail and poly count. This means that I'm cutting corners by sacrificing model usability and detail quality (and you can clearly see this on certain places). I'm also not going to make a true interior - only pure black cilhoettes of the interior parts. Note the classic Chevy rims and the lack of windows, textures and materials. This is because it is obviously not finished. I've been doing this for the whole day and still didn't have time to model wheels and all the stuff that's missing from the render! I need to become faster...

Oh, and also 8th of December is the official celebration day of the Bulgarian students and most of my friends were pretty much partying, getting drunk and all the wild stuff, while I was modelling that 2004 Subaru Legacy Wagon. Since this is my second year as a student, I already had the pleasure of celebrating the day and that was last year, but this year I decided to give myself some break. Lol, silly me Laughing

You are definately the pro at modeling vehicles, Dobi. Great work after only working on it for a single day. Cool

Thanks :)What I want is to be able to model a whole hi-poly car (excluding interior, engine bay and underbody/chassis) in a day. Let's see how far I'll get with this.

I'm actually wondering by building my brand new rig, how much faster I'll become. You know, my current rig is not fast so I'm often experiencing lag, slowdowns and that kind of stuff during modeling.


Btw, I don't consider my self to be "pro" in vehicle modeling. At the very least, I'd be making money out of it if I was pro. But this Pantural guy is a REAL pro: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
In the end of the video he goes to show his very first auto model. And it looks better than anything I have done so far. So, at my best, I consider my self to be a hobby modeler.

I'd love one too! Shouldn't be too hard to make one and I've been toying with the idea.

Very cool Daniel. Nice and clean mesh you got there.

Yet another from me. This time a piece in real life. I carved a block of foam into the pokemon squirtle for a class of mine, then we took it to a metal place to get it cast into aluminum.

Me pouring molten aluminum:

affraid 
This ranks as significantly cool on the cool-o-meter!
I saw something related today: molten aluminum being poured into an ant hole. Poor ants, but the resulting metal "tree" was quite awesome once removed from the soil.

(I apologize if Mediafire is still doing that Adfly thing: I don't know of any other good hosting places that will host an image for an extended period of time.)

Nice work here Dan. Even your 3d manipulator looks interesting. I think Imageshack still has long term free hosting.

Thanks, and no, just googling "Quadcopter" and picking and matching details as I go. I also threw in some of my own uneducated ideas here and there. The strut design for instance: tall/narrow motor so that the struts can fold up when not in use. That "grenade pin" on the side alternatively sets the extended resting point, or it locks it in the folded position which incidentally also protects to rotor.
I'm trying to get a believable render off this, in addition to a snazzy presentation just to show off my visualization skills ('folio piece).

Dave! Been a long time! Good to see you on the forum! ImageShack has always been weird for me. For some reason it doesn't want to work most of the time.

Quicky viewport preview renders with rough IBL.

A long time indeed. Whatever the issue was with your imagehosting before seems fixed with your last two posts, and wow, what a difference the renders make! Awesome awesome work as always!  The first image with the cloudy background, without the scale of the nuts and bolts, almost looks like it could be a sort of space station. Nice quadcopter! Cool

Good grief Radial.

You call that a doodle?! It's excellent work mate.

I'm so far out of my depth Smile

Nah, don't sell yourself short!
Calling it a doodle is really bit pretentious: it is a good deal of work and I don't want to make it seems like it was effortless. I have been messing around with Blender for six or so years so my familiarity with it shouldn't be a surprise.

I was just kidding Radial, it's obvious there's a good bit of work in there. And you're not being pretentious putting it here if it doesn't fit anywhere else.

Are you planning to use this somewhere or just experimenting? Seems a shame to not use it when it looks so cool!

I plan on making a shiny presentation sheet with renders, and maybe some cool schematics (all just aesthetic, since these are not properly engineered) to show that I can do product prototyping (of a sort) and visualization. All for my portfolio.
Less artsy, more sciencey this time around.
