The Last Steam Engine


#1

…seriously… This was over 200 pieces… I’m cured of the desire to model these things… And it’s ugly (thus the lack of render)… The exploded view is pretty cool, though… I figured worth sharing…


#2

I very like your engine models. I think they could look even better with antialiasing :wink:


#3

Nice job @TheOnlyAaron, congrats.
How did you made the exploded view? I guess it was made little by little, piece by piece?


#4

I seriously hope that sometime you can take a model like this, press Print and get a working model as a result.


#5

Thanks! I moved components to space them out so they would look good. I know there is an extension out there that tries to do this for you, but I have had the best results using the move command:


Follow-me problem... (could be an easy one)
#6

Well, I don’t know about that…beauty being in the eye of the beholder and that sort of thing…


#7

Just saying… Big aluminum block versus the nice BRASS pistons and such on the others…


#8

Mind the spell check. :grin:


#9

Whoops! That was a new one!


#10

Then, I guess, it’s on to modeling boilers.


#11

Fabulous work there!
