OK thought it might be fun to join the challenge. This is a solar assisted mechanical drill the concept is that there will be water heated up the make the drill cut through ice better now I am working on the drill head.

comming along quite nicely. how many minutes in are you?
06-02-2010, 03:54 PM
About 15 or so not much. Radial symmetry is fast in Wings other things might prove to be problematic.

what software are you using?

Wings 3D (http://wings3d.com/)Open source box modeler works pretty good for quite a few things. It is the best modeler in my budget.

how much does it cost. because for a relatively cheap price you can get the student version of 3d max or maya. Thats if you are a student.

Open source it is free of any cost. just download it. I have been looking into a version of Houdini like that but right now I use what I got. I render in Messiah for most things in bryce occasionally.
OK more done about 15 minutes on the tires here.
