Wall hanger - An8 to Life
« on: April 24, 2021, 01:46:52 am »

Here's my latest woodworking project which I first drew by hand, then modeled in Anim8or -  an "Everyday Carry Wall Hanger" (attached at the bottom).

I had to make a lot of modifications in the building process because I found in a lot of cases the way that materials and tools work in the real world is a lot different from how tings come together when modeling or drawing, lol!


I guess I'll start calling these "An8 to Life"! For getting quick dimensions and sketches, Anim8or is great and simple. I pretty much exclusively use it for this kinda of 'preconception' of ideas these days, and my next project is even more detailed and is coming out closer to the model than I usually tend to do.

Thats cool davdud, and good job.
 2 things i can mention.
 No 'hanging hole', and no notes on the 'sticky notes'

 Looks awesome tho. I just wanna make the doors slide open and shut, and maybe then an animated gif of that happening. (probably morph targets, or might need to use a rig, but of course that's only if the doors are seperate meshes from the rest of it)

 i just love seeing, and making, things move.

 Good job !

Lol johnar!! Now that you say it, I might actually give that a quick shot tonight just for the fun of it. Would definitely be fun updating the model to match closer to the real version!

EXCELLENT work either way! But did you actually fabricate this object, and is the image on the right an actual photograph of the item?
