Rules:
1. Every two weeks or so there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit between 60 and 120 minutes. You should spend no longer than the allotted time modeling. Then texture your object(s), light the scene, and post a render of your model to this thread. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modelling time is essential. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.
2. Post a wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger. (For wireframe help go to: http://www.artssphere.com/plugins/polygoncoloring.php
3. LightWave must be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug-ins are allowed.
4. You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.
5. Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.
6. If there are a sufficient number of contributors, a "winner" will get the chance to set the subject of the next challenge. Input from the community is often used in this process. If there are only a handful of contributors, they can discuss this together and pick the next topic, designating one of them to post the new subject in the Forum.
7. Have fun! This is a community event designed to encourage you to keep modeling. Whether you're a new LightWave artist or a seasoned professional, working with these tools is the only way to get better.

If you are new to LightWave 3D and are learning Modeler, you can go up to 180 minutes if you wish. I haven't checked past Challenge archives for this kind of exception yet, but if this helps newer users get involved in these topics, I'm all for it!

Not particularly fond of the polygon configuration on the top silver panel, but I ran out of modeling time. Turns out there's a few bad ways to start a base model for these various shapes! :foreheads

I may clean up the mesh this week to improve the curves so that the silver material reflects better.

Thanks bellmore and Farhad_azer for uploading your renders!

Here is another go at it. About 90 minutes modeling. I'm working on another one (a very simple design).

Holy crap, bellmore! That's ingenious. And no safety features at all! Might also be good for shredding clay tablets.

The technical name for such a thing is a "mangle".

I'll be "scoring" the submitted entries at lunch tomorrow (Pacific Time Zone) and will announce who gets to pick the next topic to be posted on the 16th! I hope this every-two-weeks things is amicable for all.

I checked a few different Challenges in the archives and didn't see any particular methodology used other than the topic submitter picking one. I didn't check ALL of them, though ;) Farhad had recently used a scoring system similar to table below, so I thought I'd use it too. Keep in mind that judging these is fairly subjective since there aren't any set criteria or guidelines that I could find. Feedback from the community would be appreciated, especially if someone has tribal knowledge of the SMC's here on the forums. With that said, here's the score sheet:

Congratulations Bellmore! You'll get to pick the next topic! Thanks for submitting a few different types of shredders. I'll PM you with instructions on what to do next so the next Challenge can start tomorrow!
