Solar Ice Drilling Machine



Welcome to the fourth MONTHLY CHALLENGE which are spread across the entire forum. This section is the Speed Modelling Section.

Thread Naming: Your Name – Solar Ice Drilling Machine
Keep all questions in this thread

You're challenge if you choose to accept it is to make the best Solar Ice Drilling Machines.

Due Date: Sunday 11:59 pm (GMT) February 28th

Idea: Solar Ice Drilling machines, boring a multitude of different sized holes into the frozen ground beneath them. They can be from from any scale from hand held to giant industrial drilling behemoths.

Time Limit: 240 Mins, multiple entries are allowed at the WIP stage, but you can only submit one into the final judging.

1x Beauty shot of your vehicle. Feel free to post multiple angles of your model or just one big version on this page. You are free to do whatever post effects you like on this image. Be careful how you do this though, simple is often better. Your models will not be judged on texturing...this is after all a modelling challenge.

1x Wireframe of the model. Feel free to post multiple wireframe shots both screen grabbed and cell rendered, the more angles and good clear wireframes the better.

1x Clay render, a detailed clay render of the model created, again with as many angled shots as you like or one big render.

All images should be no larger than 1024x1280 in a portrait or landscape format. All images must be at least larger than 800x600 or bigger to qualify. All images must be uploaded to the threedy severs via the attachment button in the advanced section of the thread page.

Time spent on the model(s) does not include texturing, lighting or rendering.

State your software of choice, and time spent somewhere on your entry. Any additional details such as lighting and texturing and rendering times are optional.
It is permissible to use different software to light and render your model if you so wish.

Competition Restrictions:

Your entry must be specifically created for this challenge. Do not use any pieces from previous personal works. We are relying on your honesty here.

I am confuzzled. Is this a SOLAR powered drill?

nice!!

One questions:

1) Does the drill need to be Solar powered? If so, I don't think it will work that well o.O Is the drill going to be on an ice planet? If so, then the planet is solid ice because it is shrouded by its dense atmosphere blocking sunlight therefore no solar power =/. Or is it just a solar powered drill at the arctics? That sounds more plausible.

2) So there are no changes to the amount of texturing we are allowed to do? I changed my mind and now I agree with the rest that this should be SIMPLY a modeling challenge.

From all the excitement , i forgot to ask: does the machine have to be mobile?

@ zipel - since it's from hand held to big machine it's definitely mobile

I know it will be mobile if it's hand held, but i was thinking on a huge machine (more like a factory size, not a shed size )

hmm don't see any logic if the machine drills ice but cannot be moved or it's weight = 100 tons to make it easier for falling through the ice and drilling the bottom of the ocean

i don't think it has to be mobile, but it should be able to drill ice and be easily moved by some means of transportation - for instance by CH-47 Chinook. It's maximum takeoff weight is 22,680 kg so 22,6 tons

if i'm mistaken please correct me CG

Question - is the purpose of the machine to drill ice, like i want a hole and that's that or to be like a research machine to extract drilled ice (perhaps both concepts work)

if something requires DRILLING then we can assume that the surface to be drilled is EXTREMELY thick and hard! And I think it could withstand the weight of 50,000LBS.

Ice can be very VERY tough! Especially at the arctics! Now for this contest were talking about an entire planet made of ICE. There are MILE long caves in some of the locations! Especially during the ice age.

True but if someone is thinking of modeling a ice drilling plant, factory size machine, i doubt it's possible to build such a thing in icy conditions...

I think it has to be solar powered. After all, if we are continuing theme from last time, this would be about the time we have nuclear winter or second ice age. So my guess is solar power is just about the only power around (that and power of mutated two headed rabid polar bear cross bred with elephant, but thats a different story ).

Anyways, if the story continues, I am following the tracks from the last week. And I already have an idea. In fact i already have the drill in my head (figuratively). And again it would be based on the "ww2 never ended" concept

.. and amg! I got a perfect idea for beauty render!
