The CAD model for my 1912, 40 HP Traction Engine was created in SolidWorks™ as one of my many projects in the field of Industrial Archeology (IA). It was reverse engineered from many sources, drawings and photographs, and is an accurate representation of one of the most popular designs of the era. Research was done at the noted Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum, in Vista, California, USA.
The high-resolution 4,723,927 poly model is highly detailed, suitable for extreme close-ups, and is ideal for inclusion into period scenes and shop environments in the early 20th century. All parts are modeled to facilitate animation.
All appropriate parts and surfaces were color-mapped in SolidWorks™, and migrated to the .obj format to simplify material and texture application. Images 17, 18 and 19 show the mapping on the .obj model.
Converted from SolidWorks™ to .obj using SimLab Composer. Preview renderings created in KeyShot2 Pro from Luxion. Lighting created in HDR LightStudio.
