Hi all,

It has been a long time since my last post, due to work and other projects non scifi, I hope to see some old friends still posting here!
I'm working on a new private project Wall-E, here is a start, I hope you like it.
Final texturing will be done once Wall-E is completely dressed up

    That's... Amazing! Are you actually modeling this model piece by piece in Solidworks and assembling it there as if it were an actual engineering project?
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Thanks so much guys!!

    Hi VASIMR, yes I am

    0oooo cant wait! Im glad your doing this, you'll do it justice!
  • VASIMRVASIMR0 Posts: 0Member
    That's insane, but really cool. Are you just doing that for ease of modeling (I would figure that it would be easier to model/position something like this in parametric engineering software), or does this project involve actually fabricating the individual pieces?

    Excellent start. I would expect no less from you. ;)

    Great stuff!

    I don't think I remember who you are, and from the look of your first picture on this, I imagine I would have spent some time bowing down at your feet and generally gurgling. That's a pretty good start... I'm a pretty good understater.

    nico-r44 good to see you posting here again mate.

    If Wall-E going to be like your other projects here I know it going to be mind blowing great.

    I am deeply envious... and extremely glad that someone is finally doing this. I wanted to, but I'm realistic enough to know that my skill level is WAY below what's required to do it justice. It looks fantastic so far!
  • FalinFalin0 Posts: 0Member
    wow, magnificant start, they're so realistic! more please :)
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Wooow thanks so much guys for the nice comments! I'm getting a bit shy now ;-)

    I will also model those solar panels, as real as I possibly can, and today I started modeling the body, it's not just one part but a lot of separate parts

    Nice start ... :)

    what happened to the Eagle? :)


  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Hey Chris :) thanks!!

    Ah my eagle, I also started to remodel him in SolidWorks ;)

    amazing, you are doing a superb work! can't wait to see it finished!
    are you going to use it in some animation?
  • AnnihilatorAnnihilator0 Posts: 0Member
    nice work. looks like something i want to port over to Inventor. :D
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Thanks guys!!! :)

    I don't think I will animate him, but render a lot of poses

    Thank you so much Mr. Wilde :)

    At this rate, he's going to make the pixar version look cheesy. Brilliant!
  • FreakFreak1088 Posts: 4,361Member
    ^ would say that is a bit of an understatment. ;)
  • NightShadowNightShadow10 Posts: 0Member
    I don't know about all that- Pixar is filled with a bloody lot of talented artists. Nico's work here, though, shows incredible skill and promise.

    I love that last render doing wall-e some justice, I love the shinny metal on the 'arms'
  • DannageDannage236 Posts: 634Member
    What gets me is the quality of the render output! The mesh-esque shots look nice and show off the clean and smooth modelling but the render output looks like a photo of real world stuff. I appreciate that's either Materials, lighting, fx or a combo of all of em, but it still amazes me.
  • asddsa0147asddsa01470 Posts: 0Member
    Yeah, your renders are really photoreal. Are you using Maxwell for renders this time too?
