Most days before I start working at my job, I take 15 minutes to do a simple warm up art exercise. Since my main Max file was created in Max 2010 and at work we use max 2009. I HATE the fact that Autodesk products aren't backwards compatible. I mean why cant u open a Max 2010 file in Max 2009? Adobe does it, why cant you Autodesk...whyyyy?. Ohhhh yea I forgot, they want our monies. But thats a discussion for another day.
Anyway I will merge the drill bit into the main max file when I get home tonight.

So far I am about half way into my modeling...130mins total

Autodesk products you mean MAX only others do not share the same faith. Also autodesk is pushing FBX but never tried it.

rocneasta: Man the last time i used an FBX file format was almost 3 years ago. it is a good format but it seems more people and software developers push OBJs more.

@tntxgrave - i ahve good news for you, and bad news.
bad first - your drillhead wonīt work. the teeth from the wheels are at oppsite directions, which means a peak will face another peak, and a valley another valley. they have to interlock, like cogwheels. at least it looks so from this pov. but that can be fixed easily.

now good news. when max 2011 will come ot, itīll backward compatible. so you can work with older programms (starting at 2010).

Psycho Mantis: I have no idea what you mean. I got lost somewhere in your explanation. I was going based on this design (image below). I noticed there is alot more spacing between the cogs.
If you could save the image of the drill i posted and illustrate over it what you mean. It would be helpful. Thanks man.

the way you have the teeth now the hole on the one gear doesn't line up with the tooth on the other so the drill won't be able to spin.

Sorry I haven't gotten to posting an update. Because there isn't one yet. I got home from work and couldn't stand to look at my home computer screen, let alone 3d max. I work as a 3D modeler and Animator for a local gaming and simulation lab. So after looking at 3d max for 9 straight hours i think i deserved a little rest. So i came home and went to bed.

I took the day off work due to the fact that we are expecting 20 - 24 inches of snow. So i will take 1 hour later on today to work on this model. Expect my update later. Thanks guys.

yeah you got it, and keep in mind, that the wheels need different sizes and locations. they cant be all at teh same height, becuase then the wheels would stuck. i am not an engineer, and i guess they have formulas for stuff liek gears etc, but i think with trial and error you will get it done. just keep in mind that all 3 drillheads need different size, maybe angle, and location.

Ok so 3D Total Forums seemed to be down for like 27364726747682347 hours today. I finally was able to get on. I have noticed that speed modeling over a period of time is MUCH easier than doing it all in one sitting. I am amazed at how much I got done. I would never be able to do that much in one sitting. I get bored and distracted if I work for more than 2hrs straight. I usually end up on Youtube, Geekologie, Aint-it-Cool or some random Anime site to watch something.

Well I worked for 80 minutes today. I blocked out the rest of the machine, and began some minor detail work. I only have 30 minutes left to model. I still have to do the wiring, Solar Panels, the block that connects the drill to the rest of the arm so its not just floating, and the interior of the cockpit. Actually i might just tint the windows enough so you cant tell there is no interior...lol Ohhh mannn thats alott of work for half an hour. Hopefully i can do it. so here is the progress I promised earlier.

210 minutes in...
