Lego Mini Telehandler by DTM-51 Lego Mini Telehandler by DTM-51
The next step after the Millennium Falcon was Lego Technic. So i searched for the smallest set and what should I say..
This little guy took me two Weeks :eyepopping:

BUT i made a small library with all the parts and now comes the big stuff :D

Let me know what you think :)

Love it! The lighting and perspective look tremendous. Now I wanna build one. :)

I don't know if perfect realism is your goal but if it is you might want to round the ends of the + axes a little more. The real ones are never that perfect. Same goes for the tyres, they are usually a little less shiny.

Thank's a lot! Of course it is! :D Good tip, maybe I can implement it in my current project but i guess it's to late now (there are already +1200 pieces and several axes, stay tuned ;D) But I will definitely  revise the Tyre-Shader  :)

Oh wow, that's fantastic! Great job!:ohyeahs: That's what my goal is too; build up a library. This makes for some great contributions! I haven't done any of those rounded pieces with holes yet.
I like what you did with the background scene too.

Thank's a lot! :D I have to admit that I used the LDraw Library as a template and revised them (Still up to 6 hours per piece..) :no:
I had no idea what to do with the background, to be honest.. :D I'm glad you like it ;)

Guess I never heard what LDraw Library is. But that works too!
You're welcome!:-)

LDraw is a pretty accurate library of all (yep, all) Lego pieces ;) There is a Add-On to import them. But like I said, they need a whole lot of revision :D
www.ldraw.org/

I'm now using it as a template to reproduce them in a CAD-program and import them back to Blender (even more accurate! :love:) :D
It takes some time but wow, that looks awesome :D

Oh wow, that's cool! That would be very useful! So there's an addon to import them into Blender?

How fun! I should get to making Lego mini-figures for some characters I want to do in Lego.:D

But in the final result, on top of the studs, there is never the logo shown?

Maybe because of copyrights? I don't know :D

Cool, Thanks! I'll have to check those out! I usually don't like to directly copy from things, but this will come in very handy for parts that are more sculpted without precise measurements, like the little hair wigs, hats and such.

Yes me neither :D That's  why i'm now using it as a reference to make them on my own :)
