Simple tower or Electric crane made with 3ds Max 2010.
Excellent as a quick background fill for construction scenes.
Three parts are rigged (parent to child as groups) :
The hook can pull the springs up and down, the head rotates around the neck of the crane and slides up and down, so fairly simple to animate.
Rendered with scanline and Mental Ray (no external plug-ins needed).
* No textures used *
Other formats are available and exported from 3ds Max 2010.
Thanks for watching ;)
