3D Model: Bus Blaster v2.0a1

Posted on Monday, February 20th, 2012 in 3D Model, Uncategorized by Filip

Our latest 3D model is the Bus Blaster v2.0a1. We continued to play around with Maxwell’s free rendering plugin for SketchUp. We reduced the gloss on plastic components, as per Jerome’s advice, for even more realistic rendering. Thanks Jerome.

The models will be published in the Dangerous Prototypes 3D warehouse collection. They are also uploaded to our SVN. You can find them inside the “art” folders in the respective project folders. Check out the 3D view below. You can zoom and rotate the model.

You can get a Bus Blaster v2 for $34.95.

    Again one of the coolest 3d rendering. I wonder how much CPU used to make this.

    Anyways, I’m confused, is there any (social network malware?) named 3d warehouse embedded into this blog post. I’m seeing message that my gmail account is not allowed to the service. Is there something in the blogpost for a selected group of gmail users?

      Hi Arup, thanks. To render the picture above took my CPU about an hour to do. My CPU is AMD Athlon II X3 @3.6Ghz.
      3D warehouse is a repository of 3D models that is integrated into Google SkethUp, You can download the model from our SVN if you don’t want to have anything to do with gmail.

      But I dont understand the problem becouse I have access to the warehouse even when I am signed out of my gmail account.

    I spend at least 90 minutes to produce results like that with my old computer (Intel Prescott with 512MB Ram) :D

    Now I’m making some real models through hole components, like this is one https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/432145_3244721355230_1182761343_33294961_584697968_n.jpg
