Entry Models

Sewing machines are fun! Why? Well, why not?
Sewing machines are little strangely-shaped boxes
filled with pleasure! Thread goes in, and clothes
come out! Try do design your own special Sewing
Machine, and it might come in handy when you
try to sow the sweater from #121 in reallife. Thank
you Goldensim for this great idea!

  1. :( i hope iam not the only one entering this challenge ..i thought a sewing machine would be a great challenge for the intricate shapes and mechanics!

  2. I'm not in this one. This challenge requires a lot of time and currently I don't have enough of it to do something good.

    I'm eager to discover other great models submitted by this lot of regular talented modelers.

  3. Hi Cathy. I have amended my model and added some more detail. I have also added the benchmarkings

  4. I'm making one now, just start today.

  5. Tomorrow is your last chance to submit an entry! Good luck!


  6. I may not finish my model in time, urgent work come to me and I'm back to busy again.

    My model in progress now is Little Wanzer, antique sewing machine. It have nice shape, small, have not much parts but I must to do some research to make it good. Maybe I started too late.

  7. Hi Crazy Eyes, It's a lot better, I've seen it yesterday evening. You can now sell your model to the manufacturer, it's very realistic!

    Thanks for listening to my suggestions.

    @GoldenSim. I am happy to be voting or your sewing machine. It is very beaultiful

  14. Hi guys, I was finally able to finish my Ray Gun entry about a week ago and I have posted it to the 3D Warehouse and to my blog. Even without the other stuff I was working on I probably still would not have finished in time. Have a look and tell me what you think. Thanks :)

  17. For the next challenge, I was thinking of an abandoned place, like a ghost town or also desert roads or things like that. I mean, it could be a building or a fatory with crumbling walls or even a whole city after an earthquake or an historic abandoned town... I personally think that it would be interesting. I'd like some feedbacks :)

  18. personally i dont like doing buildings

  19. Yes, I love abandoned random places, like old industrial zones or train factories such as forgotten whale hunter colonies. But I'm scared, how it fits into a week. (average challenge time)
    Cheers Moboille!

  20. The idea of doing an abandoned place sounded quite interesting too.

  21. I must admit two weeks would be required otherwise we couldn't really make something elaborated.

    @GoldenSim, you actually could create everything you'd like as long as it's abandoned, perhaps one of the technical stuffs I know you prefer, so to speak.. :)

    I guess we would be granted 2 weeks if many people intend taking part in the challenge.

  22. I quite like building abandoned places. I think that would be a very good subject.

  23. Voting closed.
    Next challenge will be posted tomorrow; I just arrived back home from a four-day trip to London, UK, which was great. I met a lot of other modelers! Tate Modern was amazing by the way. Thanks for voting!
