Wow, you have more patience than I do.
How many days/hours do you estimate that it took you do this, and what did you use for reference? Lots of nice detail, although, from looking at the wireframe, it doesn't look animatable as is, at least not the belt anyway.

Excellent modelling Yuchenpan, I'd be interested to know which parts started in Rhino and how you got those parts into Lightwave. Its good to see some industrial /mechanical design in the Gallery.

Very nice, I too love techy renders like this.

Out of interest where did you grab the reference from? Did you have an engine to measure from or was it from plans?

Matt

P.S. Nice design on your website too :) (I'm an industrial designer too!)

If you look at the wireframes on this link:

http://www.ycpan.com/engineinfo.htm

The parts with lots of triangulation are the imported Rhino models, so it looks like the main engine block, the rest is obviously LightWave.

Wow, that is one sick piece of work. I always wonder how people have the patience to model something like this. You have to have a real passion for the project to devote this kind of time to one model.

Awesome work, extremely detailed, no crits here.

hi, thanks for all ur comments,
mattbolton-this work took me around one month to do it, including test render and final render time. And NO, there is no way I can animate it :p
noiseboy-matt is correct, if you look at the wireframes, the parts with lots of triangulation are the imported Rhino models, you can see a lot in the piston+valve part, rest of them are LW.
Matt-I looked through some Auto Magazines as well as brouchers etc for reference, and no, there is no engine to measure from or from any plans(that's why it looks unlike the real engine), I just made it for fun :) Btw, nice to see an industrial designer here, I reckon Iam the only person who use Lw in my class :rolleyes:

I'd love to know how many Product Design studios use LightWave, most use 3DSMax, Alias Studio (for those with deep pockets!) or other proprietry renderers that come bundled with their CAD package.

The only ones I know of are Dyson (well, one of their graphics guy uses it - Luxology Gallery Entry (http://www.luxology.net/gallery/image.aspx?id=1481)) Policarpo (http://www.policarpo.us/cgi-bin/images/graphics/blog/021122-big.jpg) a designer who works at Frog Design (http://www.frogdesign.com/design/digital/user_interface/i2/index.html) uses it and ourselves.

I'm sure there are many more!

this company have used Ashlar-vellum products to model and lightwave to render. They also have a plugin to use a Microscribe arm with Lightwave.

Outstanding model, but I am confused. On the intake cover it says V8. Is this a V8 or V10 engine? If this is a V8 engine, there are only 4 cylinders per side. Not the 5 that are picture. This engine could also be an inline 5, but the width of the engine makes me belive that this is V type engine.

Excellent modelling, but the colours look way off to my eye. The brassy yellow is way too saturated, and the others surfaces seem completely neutral.

I think some more sub tle variation in hue would add a lot to it.

True, almost every ID people use Alias studio, that's why I had to use it and force to learn it, which is good by the way :) Though I would choose to render in lw instead of in studio.

PS, my lecturer can't stand me using Lightwave3D, they think it's for making toys or cartoons :mad:

I've never used Alias myself.

Has your lecturer even seen any of the stuff produced by LightWave? Point him to the LightWave gallery and watch him eat his words!

LW bashing out of principle annoys me, at least take a look before making an opinion!

I was curious about the pistons, too. I count five on the visible side and the top says V8, or should that be A8? Are there only three on the other side? Just trying to figure out the mechanics :-)

Definitely some awesome work!
