Group task – Micro modelling

For the micro modelling of recreating lego pieces, I have used the two lego pieces that my team mates have created as reference as reference lego pieces. Below are screenshots of the lego pieces that I have completed:

To create the above lego piece, I used two of the reference pieces that my team mates have created to measure the approximate width and height for the polygon cube. I also measured the approximate radius for the two polygon cylinder studs.

To create the above cube lego, I measured the approximate width and height by using the reference pieces that my team mates have created. I then set the yellow colour for the lego and then set transparency.

To create the above lego piece, I used a polygon cube, then I measured the approximate width and height for the cube. I copied and pasted the first cube to create a second cube, I then placed the cube slightly higher than the first cube, rotated it slightly downwards and scaled the sides a bit larger so I be able to create the slope for the lego piece. Below is a screenshot:

To create the above lego piece, I used the same method as I did on the forth screenshot.

Screenshot of yellow cone lego piece

The screenshot above, I have used a different technique to create the cone shape lego piece. To create this cone shape lego piece, I used one of the lego pieces that I have created as seen in my first screenshot. I then duplicated the lego piece, placed two lego pieces together, I then created a polygon cone on top of the two lego pieces to align the cone up to the approximate size for the cone shape. I then used a polygon cube to create the gaps.

To create the stud at the top of the cone, I used a polygon cylinder, I then copied and pasted the cylinder to create a second cylinder. I used the second cylinder to make it smaller and also raised it higher than the first cylinder, I highlighted the first and second cylinder, then I used the Difference tool to create that stud.

To create the above lego piece, I measured the approximate width and height for the cube by using the reference pieces that my team mates have created. I then copied and pasted the first cube to create a second cube, I then used the second cube to align it horizontally and then attach it to the first cube. I also scaled the first cube to make it thinner than the second cube.
For the two studs on the second cube, I used one polygon cylinder, copied and pasted it, scaled it smaller than the first cylinder, I then made the second cylinder longer, moved it higher a bit and used the Difference tool to create the internal part of the cylinder to create the stud. I then placed the stud on to the second cube. I also duplicated the first stud to create a second stud and placed it opposite to the first stud.

For the other two studs on the first cube, I created a polygon cylinder as a stud, placed it on the left side of the cube, I then duplicated the first stud and placed it on the right side of the cube as a second stud.

For the entire lego piece, I grouped it together by using union which is located in the “Mesh” drop down menu and then in “Booleans” and then in “Union”.
