Cutaway steam engine designed to illustrate the physical operations by which it functions. A great demonstration of steam-powered mechanical principles.
Modeled in Carrara 4.0 and provided in .car, .3ds, and .obj formats. The native .car file contains the animation setup for one cycle (which can be infinitely looped) as well as camera and lighting setups.
The .3ds and .obj formats contain the model only, as animation and scene setups could not be exported. However, The animation can be quickly reconstructed in your application of choice using basic rotations and translations.
Only simple shaders are used in the above previews (no textures). The model resolution is sufficiently high for close-up renders.
Included in Accompanying Product Files (available for download upon purchase) are larger isometric renders of the engine at each of the four stages of the cycle. Overall renders provided at 1280 x 960 resolution, and engine and wheel close-up provided at 640 x 480 resolution.
Free previews of three sample animations are also included. The animations are provided in .avi format, uncompressed, at 640 x 480 resolution and 24 fps. Animations will run seamlessly and continuously when looped.
