SMC M#03 ragupasta: All Terrian Armoured Vehicle; Mass Effect Mako

Hi guys,

Thought I would join in the fun. I decided to go with the Mass Effect Mako. This is where I am at now, I have 16 minutes left to make any final adjustments (which to be honest there are a lot). There is also the underside of the cannon to finish.
Here are some renders of where it is now...






Also I thought I would record it as well. An opertunity to share.

NOTE: All limited broadband users might want to miss the video, its +/-400meg. Hosted at vimeo.

Cheers!

You need to beef up the thickness on that gun's barrel...otherwise, the first time it fires it is going to explode. Nice rifling effect though. How did you make it?

Cheers for the crit. Ive run out of time so I cannot tweak the barrel anymore

As for the rifeling, I used a cylinder for the barrel, detached as a clone the inside and isolated that selection. Selected a horizontal edge all the way around the diameter of the cylinder and did a loop select. Extruded the selected edges by a small amount in height and width. Selected the newly extruded edge(s) and chamfered those to make a square cross-section. Added a tessalation modifier set to faces, and upped the interation by 1 setting. Added a twist modifier and upped the spinner until I was satisfied.

That was it really, really quick and simple, and because I used already existing geometry (as I do all the time) it was exactly the right size and shape I needed.
Makes for a nice quick workflow.

Alll this is shown in the video link in the first post
