The image above represents the famous Lethbridge Teapot. The software I used
in order to design this teapot was 3D
Studio Max 6.0.
1. I first
designed the teapot. I used the cone tool to design the lower part of the
teapot. I used the scale and rotate tools to ratio the lower part to
the upper part of the teapot. For the upper part I took another cone and
I rotated it at an angle of 180 degrees. To align the upper part and the
lower part of the teapot I had to note down the radius of the two parts.Once
the upper part aligns with lower part, i was left with slicing the
upper cone to make a hole.I made a box and then used the boolean function
to cut the above cone in an angle.This gave me a structure that looked identical
to the Lethbridge teapot.
2. Then I used Adobe Photoshop to map the design of the teapot. I got the
design from the picture provided to us by the proffessor.Once the map was
made, I was ready to map that design on the teapot, I made in part 1.For
mapping the steps were:
3. The last image I developed was a table.I
used the plane tool and then applied the wood feature under material editor
to give it a table look. I used the reflection and omni tools for reflecting
the teapot at certain angle.
- Tool Bar --> Rendering -->Material
Editor--> Apply the map on the teapot
The difficult part for developing this image was to make a structure identical
to the Lethbridge teapot.I had to spend lot of time in aligning the upper
and the lower part of the teapot.
Image 2 : High Level Bridge, Lethbridge
The image above
represents the high level bridge. Build in 1909 this is one of the longest
and highest bridges of its type in the world .The software I used in order to design this
bridge was 3D Studio Max 6.0.
1. First step in the creation of this image was the creation of the pillors.I
used box and cylinder tool to make the pillors. I made multiple copies of
the first pillor and aligned them in a straight line.I colored the pillors
2. For the top of the bridge I used the plane tool.I scaled the plane so
that it could fit on the top of the pillors.For the track, i used small boxes
of 0 height and made multiple copies and aligned them evenly on the top of
3. For the train I used the box and cylinder tool. I used small cylinder
to link all the train boxes.
4. For the reflection I used reflection and omni tools.
5. I used the noise feature under the material Editor to make the water.
6. I took the teapot as a group object and fixed it on a cylinderical base
in the water.
The difficult part of this image was the creation of pillors and the water.
For the pillor part the hard part was to align the small cylinders in 'X'
form. For the water part the worry was the reflection in water. I used the
noise feature to make the water surface uneven and then I used the reflection
tool to reflect the bridge in the water.
