3D model robot- part 5: painting and testing techniques

Here’s part five of the 3D model design process, this time I’m focusing on starting to paint the model in plain basecoating. Then I’ll be building this up in several parts, building layers until I get a professional painted model. Carrying on from part 4, I’ve completely basecoated the model in gloss white spray paint.Continue reading “3D model robot- part 5: painting and testing techniques”

3D model robot- part 4 [update]

This is just an update blog on what I’ve done so far with the final design model.  So the pipes I used on the model weren’t as weightless as I thought they were, as they couldn’t hold onto the plant pot by the glue and kept tear off from the bonding. The solution was toContinue reading “3D model robot- part 4 [update]”

3D model robot- part 4: Improving and creating final design

This part will explain my process from what I’ve learnt from my test design, and starting the process for creating my final design. Whilst the design will be similar, there are a few improvements to the methods and process into creating the final design. So I started out by looking through my  test design workContinue reading “3D model robot- part 4: Improving and creating final design”

3D model robot-part 3: test design part 3

Continuing on from the last part in my 3D model design series, this time I’ve spray painted the whole body and legs seperatly, to see how the model looked once basecoated. The tape didn’t really go down well, it looked odd from the basecoat. I originally thought it might look smooth but wrinkled once IContinue reading “3D model robot-part 3: test design part 3”

3D model robot- part 2: testing part 2

Carrying on from the last post, I’ve added the second part to the test design experiment phase. This part focuses on the top part of the model, adding parts to the head of the robot and the legs. Materials: One tikka curry packaging lid and bowl. 135 degree pipes and 34mm pipes (x4 each) OneContinue reading “3D model robot- part 2: testing part 2”
