R.E.A. Bot ( WIP)
Work has kept me from working on this guy for the last couple of months. But we are slowly moving forward again. Here is the design updated with small changes. This is still far from finished.
This is some really great work. I'm going to have to download Sketchup tonight and have a try. Thanks for the inspiration!
I like the way you put the text and the indicators on the last image!

this is just amazing! i admire how you get all these little details done so it looks like this machines, spacecrafts actually really might work. what is the thought process behind that? do you exactly know what parts will belong to this or this position or do you make it step per step and add stuff, afterwards, that arent on the sketch? really imaginative and still looks so functional and real.

Its a really impressive design, looks very functional and well thought out. I like the honeycomb parts.
For me sketchup is a real pain in the butt so I usually use maya for my modelling but you've obviously figured it out more than most.
Qikalain- thank you. When I start a design I like to gather a lot of ref images and even do some reading about something similar. I love making my designs seem as plausible as possible.
So mix that with years of designing, experience is one of the best tools in your arsenal. My design style is fluid, a sketch may seem great but when you get into the final design you might find other things that look and work better for that particular project. Hope that helps
wilkerson- thanks man. SketchUp is pretty powerful once you've figured it out. And I'm still learning new things all the time.
Solid mech stuff ... I like the influence from real-life industrial bots. Are these latest ones w/ the scratchier lines done freehand, or were you drawing detail on top of existing Sketchup models?
I think I saw you on Penciljack? (I'm not a member there, but thought about joining up for a little while.)
Thanks diamandis. The scratchier lines are actually a sketchup style. I draw some details on top just to create ideas for further modeling. Yes you probably did, I am still on Penciljack. It's a great community, you should join again.
