Thefmilyofblood Solar Ice Drilling Machine

Throwing my hat into the ring... wait, can I have that back? my head's getting cold.

Anywhoozle, My idea is that in the far-off distant future, new technology harnesses solar power and shoots photons through various ski-ball and pinball machines, finally shooting out the end of a giant pachinko machine and funneling through a retro laser machine onto the target. the photons at this point are very happy (and quite dizzy) and bounce around on the target and warp space-time, creating a vortex wherein normal physics is thrown out the window and in it's place there is... CARTOON PHYSICS! Around the drill a bubble of cartoonishness is formed, allowing it to operate with no obvious means of locomotion, and in an eighth the time of a normal gigantic hand-operated ice drill!

I got the idea for this while wondering how my drill was going to run on solar power, which isn't very good at running gigantic machinery.

Here's my drill so far, I've got the basic shape down, all that's left is to make some of the details. It's now at about 40,000 polygons, and I've got an hour and five minutes left.

Beautiful start, loving the detailing, is that Cinema 4D you're using? ........i've not opened C4D for over 2 weeks I MUST get back into modelling soon....I miss it.

Looking forward to seeing where you take this, a really nice start.

Thanks! Actually, it's not Cinema 4d, it's hexagon. I don't really like the program all that much, but I can't really afford anything else at the moment, and the program is, well, cheap.

Also, I'm probably going to make the model a little more cartoonish, with some nice retro gizmos on it.

Cool, not used hexagon. Modo and C4D are the easiest to use at the moment, but like you say not always cheap lol
