    Default Crane

    Just got through modeling, about to start working on the animation, then materials and lighting. Any feedback is welcomed and appreciated.

    Nice work... what program did you use to create the model?
    Inventor?
    Vanilla AutoCAD 3D?
    Something else?

    Max by itself. They had started to use Solidworks, but stopped when we all realized none of their constraints translated over to max.

    Thanks! I've got a small portion of the animation done; I'll see if I can't render out a little bit of it to show -- it really looks like a transformer then

    They're doing this weird programming deal that takes my max scene and brings it into an environment much like a 3d acrobat file, so I'm still not sure what kind of lighting they require. That shouldn't affect my materials too much (all warning labels and camo). That should be fun.

    Here's a quick animation to give you an idea of the movements (and the transformers-like aspect). Gotta unzip it.

    It's Flash format. Decent quality, highly compressible, in wide use. Besides, it's the preferred format of one of my clients and I get in the habit of making those instead of .mpg or .avi.
