The Orrery

Recommended Posts

Made this model in the end of 2017 for Facebook's Weekly CG Challenge.

Couldn't finish everything in time but still happy with it.

 

Comments and critique are very welcome :)

    Very nice... I like the lighter version best and the YouTube video certainly brings it to life ::):

  • Thank you! Unfortunately a full animation took too long to render-.-

    Welcome to the Cafe....and I must say you've made one hell of entrance.

     

    I just love that work: modeling, texturing and lighting.  The materials (especially the fresnel glass in the center and the marble rings) are spot on!  

     

    I would love to see a full animation where the gears, rings and planets are all in motion.

     

    From a design perspective, I do have one comment because I think the most aesthetically pleasing designs are those that look like every element has a function: The exposed gears should have a purpose and in an Orrery one purpose would be to rotate the planets about their individual axis.  As such, it would probably help sell the concept that this is a functioning Orrery if the gear openings were better aligned to the planet's locations.  This is an easy fix....just move the planets closer to the gear openings.

     

    Hopefully, this improves the aesthetics because now function determines design rather than the other way around.

     

    But that is a small nit relative to just an outstanding work overall!!!

    Sorry...but I simply do not have enough faith to be an atheist.

    Great work ! Lots of insight !. May be the materials are a little to clean as the design suggest a retro steampunk item, may be the feeling would be enhanced with some aged materials. But it looks really neat already !

    I had two weeks to finish it but I think I started a few days late. So I think it took me about 10 days total.

    Yeah I also think that's true. But I couldn't do further detailing in the given timeframe of two weeks... Next time :)

    My idea was that the gears are turning the axes from beneath the metal plating. But you're right - it would be clearer if one could see an axis directly connected to a cogwheel.
