Hey guys,

With all this talk lately of Houdini's modeling capabilities, Ive been inspired to do some straight forward modeling in H10. So I got a few basic sketches of a scene, but nothing 100% or in colour yet. Perhaps once I do I will post them.

Basically it's a gloomy dark night in 1888 Whitechapel. A Daimler Motor Carriage parked under a street light (gas-lamp) on a cobbled street. A few buildings in the background, perhaps Jack The Ripper lingering in the background by a brothel.

Anyways I made a start into the Daimler model which will be the focal point of the scene. Im about 2 and a half hours into the model so far….

…more to follow.

Cheers.

Looking good.

Have you put any thoght in to rigging the carriage so the leaf springs work and the steering does it's job?

Hi Jeff,

I was originally thinking of this being a static scene. However once the modeling is completed, I shall be seperating the carriage into several elements for unwrapping/texturing, so rigging would'nt really be a difficult thing to implent….

…actually I might just do that, turn it into a small animation.

Cheers!

Modeling is just modeling.
You gotta make it move IMHO.

This is really very nice however if it is modelled after something like the Daimler then the springs are too wide and heavy.

your right probbins, the leaf springs are too chunky. Also I have put the drive gear on the rear axel, when it is actually sat on a seperate input shaft to the back of the rear wheels (found some better references).

Cheers!
