Here's a simple cutaway 3D product animation project I did to show how the device worked for a trade show. The client added their own voiceover. This part of the project was primarily focused on building a detailed model of the device with an initial simple cutaway animation. More engaging and advanced animation will follow in future phases of the project.

I built the model in modo 1.3 from engineering blueprints using all subpatches for LightWave and I textured/animated it in LightWave 8.5.

I've attached a still composite rendering below. To view the first simple animation, click on the animated preview on the online portfolio page (http://dreamlight.com/3d/3d_product_anim.html) for this project.

Here are some wires of different portions of the model... :)

Excellent modelling, very clean and professional looking. Textures and renders are also very crisp. Too bad the animation is really boring...

Thanks Aljen,

The focus of this first phase was primarily to build, texture and render the model, so that's were all the effort went. The animation at this point was just an initial step to show the moving parts for a trade show, as budget/time allowed. Future phases of the project will allow us to actually focus on more dynamic animation and really do the animation much more justice. ;)

Here's a higher resolution closeup view of some of the textures used.
