    Speed Modelling Challenge #17-Life Changing Inventions

    Speed Modelling Challenge #17
    ************************************************** *******
    Rules:

    1: Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modelling times 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 render of your model (min 800x600 pixels) in this thread with a wireframe.

    3: LightWave should be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug ins are allowed.

    **Please mention whether or not you would be happy to share the model.**

    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.


    ************************************************** *******

    "toilet brush"...

    Well, I didn't exactly have that one in mind, but I guess it works!! Good luck to everyone and I can't wait to see what great ideas come from this one.

    I'll be back doing these soon, #17! Makes me realize how long I've been without a PC.

    I think it's probably a good thing I'm going to miss this one, as the first idea I had might be quite incendiary given recent discussions.

    I've been keeping an eye on these challenges, good to see they're still going strong.

    The Gutenberg Press.

    The modeling took exactly 60 minutes, since I was timing myself. I knew I wouldn't be able to get the whole thing done, so there are many details left out.

    Rendered on 9.5.1 beta. About 5 min render with the volumetrics (AMDx2).

    Yeah, I was expecting someone to do that!! I figured it would be a simple disc, so you went above my expectations... Great job!

    Adam: Simply awesome. Great idea, man!

    The ramp, but that could take several days to model.

    Well here's my submission...the humble zip fastener.

    1 hour for modelling, and another for texturing, lighting and scene-setup.

    Wire attached doesn't show the teeth, as these were all placed with HD Instance (which rocks! ).

    Feedback, as ever, appreciated...

    Do Placebos cause side-effects?
    If so, are the side-effects real?

    The good old integrated circuit. About 50 minutes to model and another hour playing about on the texture/render.

    I messed up the textures and scene when I tried to package it so I just uploaded the object.

    Thanks everyone! I want to try and get the wood a little more weathered, which I'll try when I have some spare time.
