My entry so far. All I need to do is add sound and I'll be completely done.

I'll have to pass on this one. I'm working on a massive project - already put in some 100 hrs and I have barely started. So better count me out  :)

Isn't this challenge over? It's past May 7th.

But as long as it's not over, I better do some rendering. I already have the animation. Just been holding off on rendering because of my Star Fox obsession. Been writing fanfics.

But I will try to enter this one, guys. :)

3dgeek: floyd pushed the deadline back a bit:

Hmm.. since most people seems to have trouble finishing or entering this contest I will have the deadline moved.
Everyone will have one more week to complete it's entry.

New deadline: 14th of May

This is the final deadline, so do your best!

So enough time to come with something still :)

Work in progress - articulation test.  Still quite a bit of modelling to do, particularly up front.  Rendered with ART at 400x300, hence the lowish quality.

Ok, I'm finally done. I was pretty busy lately, so it toke more time than I thought.

It's made out of two layers: one with reflections and no AA, or shadows in ART. One with scanline with AA and shadows.
The layers where merged and added with after effects. The intro is after effects too.
Physics where done with cre8or.

Update on the steam thing.  I realised that, with the valve gear the machine had, reversing would be a bit of a problem.  Also, I felt the drive gears did not reduce the revs of the crankshafts sufficiently for the machine to have much torque.  Therefore, a major redesign of the valve system and power transfer gears has taken place, as per the still below.

The reversing system lacks a link rod to the (as yet unmodelled) lever in the control cabin, and the control cabin itself remains almost entirely unmodelled.  I have scripted the motion of the rotating things, including a decelerate/direction change/accelerate routine, but the motion of the valve and piston links will have to be keyframed.  Subsequently I doubt this will be ready before the deadline, in which case the earlier YouTube link will stand as the entry.  I do plan to finish this project, however, irrespective of the contest deadline.

ENSONIQ5,  I have no knowledge of the construction of steam engines or any engine for that matter but this is one fabulous piece of modeling.
James Watt would be proud ;)

Very impressive!  And you scripted all the movement?  Wonderful job.
It appears to be a very complicated piece of machinery, and seeing your last animation it appears you're pulling it off wonderfully.  Keep it up!
