The Top 10:
Leopard-1A5 once again shows the quality of alfredix‘s modeling. This tank is another accurate beauty done in Pro/E and then translated into STEP format and uploaded to 3DVIA. [alfredix is from Germany]
To fully understand how wonderful model this is, open My Love V3 – Golden Bangles by XQH_XXX and then let it spin by itself. Using 3DVIA Shape, Parth worked his textures and the 3DVIA Player z-fighting issue to actually get his gems to sparkle! [Parth is from India]
Not only is the real 8C one of the most beautiful real cars around, Alfa Romeo 8C W.I.P. O by mynameisoscarjo is one of the very best Blender models as well. Great job! [myname is oscarjo is from Sweden]
Concept Car 1 by shodiq38 ups the 3DVIA Shape modeling bar for all of us. Check out his video of how he did it to learn his techniques. You’ll have to watch it numerous times to try to get it all! [shodiq38 is from Indonesia]
Just so everyone knows, the order that the Top 10 and Honorable Mentions are displayed is based on color, type of model and how I’m feeling, not any particular ranking. I just rearrange them until I like the way it looks. It’s as simple as that!
Here’s a brief recap of what I look for when I select the “Top 10″ and “Honorable Mentions”:
Variety – One of the most important factors. I try to show models created using lots of different software products and showing lots of different ways of using 3D. I include brief comments on why I chose each model.
Creativity, unusual subject matter and humor – These are big factors. We should all be having fun and feel free to model our passions!
Models must be uploaded by the original modeler – Many times I find models that I think will add to the community and will upload them with credit given to the modeler. These and other models that I can’t be reasonably sure who modeled them (for example – commercial models) are a welcome addition to the 3DVIA community, but the goal of the “Top 10″ is to encourage individual modelers and reward their special creativity.
Models entered in the 3DVIA Challenge contests will not be considered – They’re already getting plenty of attention and I want to spotlight models we may have missed.
There is no reward given – Other than the satisfaction of being noticed, spotlighted and being brought to the attention of more modelers. In my personal experience, the pleasure of having my work appreciated is the ultimate reward anyway.
Your comments are always welcomed and encouraged! Your responses will help the modelers and the 3DVIA community as a whole. Feel free to bring other models to my attention and let me know why they attracted you. (PLEASE NOTE: In order to make it easier to explore, all photos are linked directly to the model’s page.)
One final note of caution: these are my choices (dswavely) and my choices alone. So, aim the tomatoes appropriately.
