i'm pretty partial to both 1 and 2, so whichever you think'd be easier to model lol
I don't think they'll be too tough...they kinda look like flying money-shots. I'll put something together with the "shaft" from #1 and the "tip" from #2.
hell yeah, sounds like a nice compromise.
although i'd be lying if i said i wasn't considering getting the boxing glove effect for the fusion cannon...
I'm envisioning the three Reflector bots in a Larry-Curly-Moe routine...
Is this anything like what you had in mind?? Sharper? Spikier?? Thinner??
i actually quite like the 3rd one
It's actually kind of a tough effect to replicate now that I've started playing with it. The brightness and luminosity of the blast in the cartoon has a lot to do with the way it looks in the show. That can be a bit tough to accomplish with a non-lighted plastic part. The plastic used to print the piece as well as the paintjob the end user applies will be key to getting the end result to look right. It really needs to be painted very brightly and/or produced using a semi-translucent material...or have an LED installed in it.
I agree with all those points, though it's actually the shape itself that drew me to it. its more chaotic than the rest.
i love it
Great! Don't be shy about offering some constructive criticism if there is anything you would like tweaked. How long would you like it to be?
How's this? I took some liberties.
A variation on the 5-missile-burst:
yeah that's pretty wicked
Do you want any changes made?? Do you have access to a 3D printer?? I'm going to stick this stuff on Thingiverse as well where you can download them for free (a couple things are already up). I've been putting things on Shapeways as well...but things tend to get kinda pricey.
WIP...but this is going to happen:
And, another version of the Megatron Chaos Blast (thinner and longer than the previous one):
What do you use to make these
I use two different programs. Both are 100% free. I first assemble a basic model in Tinkercad (free online software), and then I use Blender (free opensource downloadable software) to mold and reshape the basic model I produced in Tinkercad. Here's an example of the Tinkercad to Blender to finished product progression:
Simple Tinkercad model:
Remolded Blender modified model:
Man, @fschuler that Megatron blast effect is amazing. Could I get a commission?
man, been on vacation and totally forgot to reply lol. i think the latest one is my favorite.
