Sample Project - Drone!!!

I did this project as a sample to show work (trying to solicit to AirHogs). Design is intended to be very light weight and rigid foam like they currently use. Obvious performance issues, but looks sweet for the little guys!

This represents about 10hrs of work. First is lots of loose sketches, then I like to try ideas quick and loose in 3D to check that they look good from all angles. Next is a more detailed photoshop sketching if needed, and then more refinements to the 3D. This is modeled in Rhino and rendered with Vray, it can be easily exported in STP, IGES, STL.. etc.

  • I love this! I wonder how many ID people have this passion for RC? I sure do. Did you prototype this one up to test it out?

  • @Sean Horita Yes sir it is these days! We all find our thing it seems, I have used Rhino for enough years that nothing matches its speed for me. Loose sketch, then Rhino, then PSD sketch (usually no shading) then refine the rhino from there. Sometimes I start in rhino blocking in known dimensions and then go to PSD without any pencil sketching if it is a more confined object with less freedom for large forms. What is your flow?

  • Is sketch - PSD - Rhino - VRay your preferred workflow?
