For this installment of Make Something Monday I have decided to show you something that I have been teaching my video production students. We purchased a lab license of modo a few weeks back, and I have been teaching them the fundamentals of box modeling. To accomplish this, we have been working on making a truck out of a box.
Now I know that I am supposed to make something new every Monday, and for the most part I do. I usually spend Monday afternoons working on my lesson plans for the week, so I model the truck on Mondays so I can lead my students through the process the rest of the week. I was inspired to do this truck by a 3D Studio Max tutorial I saw on the web, but since I don’t have 3DS Max I decided to adapt it to modo. So far I am really happy with how this is turning out. Of course, it is not a photoreal truck, but it gives the students a good modeling foundation and practice with many different tools.
We have pretty much modeled the main body of the truck. The next parts we will focus on will be the wheels. Once we have finished the wheels, we will start adding details such as the body panels, door handles, lights, and a roll bar. Hopefully we will complete this soon so we can move on to something else.
