Week 5, Day 3

Today I will be fixing my blog's pictures for accurate representations of my work. I'm also working on the inner skeleton arm part in TinkerCad so that I can 3D print it in class when I'm ready and to also bring it home so I can work on it. I believe that this project will be awesome!

Week 5, Day 2

Today I will be looking at example connector parts on TinkerCad so that I can have a base on how I want them to be. I've 3D printed an the example so that I know how the original part is. The material used to 3D print the part is hard plastic so it'll work great with the figure.

Week 5, Day 1

This week I'll be work on the 3D modeling process of the inner skeleton for Ki-Droid 99. For the characterization process I will be using a combination of Maya and 3DS Max at home. I have in faith myself during this project making period. Also I've been working and studying the designs of connector parts in TinkerCad that would go great with my figure's design.

Week 4, Day 2

Today I will be learning about 3DS Max along side with the Autodesk program Maya. From what I know about 3DS Max is that its used for character creation like Maya. So I will be watching tutorials on how to use 3DS Max today. (Down below is the reference image, for my project, in Maya)

Week 4, Day 1

Today I will be learning on how to do 3D modeling with Maya instead of Blender. Maya seems like it'll be easier to use from what I've watched on certain YouTube tutorials. This week I will be learning how to make 3D models in Maya for my project. Also at home I've been making a more effiecient reference for Maya.

Week 3, Day 3

As I work on my project, I'll make sure to remember all the tips I learned to make 3D models. I've decided that for my project, with the help of Mr. Martin, that it'll be better to use Maya and 3DS Max for the 3D modeling process. As I look at these programs, both of them need reference images in order for me to make my model. So I have those prepared and ready to go.

Week 3, Day 2

Today I will be continuing my video watching process. I have a model (down below) of something I created in Blender for practice. Throughout this whole week, I will continue watching videos so I can be better. Also I've been working with a phone scanner to scan my pictures for the design.

Week 3, Day 1

Today I'll be watching and working with video tutorials on how to use Blender. In order for me to make a 3D model of my project I need to use Blender so that I can make more detailed features to my figure. Hopefully, the info I learn will for my project will be very beneficail to future projects.
(Down below is an what will be going into Blnder as my reference drawing and examples of videos I'm watching.)

Week 2, Day 2

Today I'm finalizing my design for my project Ki-Droid 99. Even if it may be finished there will probably be design changes along the way to accommodate certain features or detail that I would like to add. But so far it looks good.

Week 2, Day 1

Today I'm continuing my work on the design of Ki-Droid 99. I've posted my proposal last week so that my reasoning and budget will be availble to thise who would like to see my scheduled process.

Week 1, Day 2

Today is my first blog post on my project, Ki-Droid 99. I started with some designs for how I wanted my figure's body to before I add it to Blender. Down below are rough drafts for the design of my figure. Quick fact: Blender is a free 3D computer graphics software that can be used to create animated films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications and video games.
