    Fast modeling competition. Edition 9 : Modern lamp

    Long time since last speed modeling lets make one .
    The idea of it is to do model in less than 2 h. Every 2 weeks we will choose one the best model and person who done it will win one of our CD's (can choose which, only Archexteriors,Archinteriors, Archmodels or Textures4ever)

    Subject for this weeks is: modern lamp.

    There are two things that you must to do to start in this contest:

    1. Post in this thread screen shot from viewport of your model (wire and shaded).
    2. Eventually you can post some render, but we wouldn't entertain it in final judgment.
    3. Write how long it take to model it.

    Lets the competition begin.


    Best Regards

    well.. a simple question:
    the focus of this competition is the modeling skills or the lamp design ?
    so, the piece can be a reproduction ?

    Modern Light Model - Le Klint 172

    Here's a model which I started by drawing the cross-section of the folding shape of the pendant, using just basic splines. I then copied this section, mirrored it, and rotated it 36*. I then joined these two splines at their vertices, and added a surface modifier to that shape. I continued by adding a symmetry modifier, and then I adjusted the edges of the mesh until all of the seams between the symmetrical pieces were round and smooth. After this point, all I had to do to finish the model was add a couple more rotated symmetry modifiers, and smooth out the remaining edges. The metal hardware was added using basic 3d primitives.

    Total Time: ~1 hr. 50 min.

    Modern Lamp


    I'm in, and this is my modern lamp.

    I took half an hour, from modelling, materials and lighting, and over fifteen minutes to post-production and viewport grabing

    Hi, here's my first post here in this forum.

    I'm a newbie in 3D modelling and I wanted to start with this competition. Well, my modern lamp is a low compsumption light that levitates thanks to magnetic fields, and works without wires or bateries. Also, it can be regulate and set up with the computer bia "wi-fi" because of its antennas.

    Here are the pictures and good luck for all!!

    Brainstorming: 10 min
    Modelling: 40 min
    Texturing: 15 min
    Rendeing: 20-30 min

    modeling of a Lamp

    Hello to all. Here is my post for the fast modeling of a lamp. Here i want to mention that when i took step for post after modeling i saw that it required a modern Lamp, but my model is like a classical lamp. So i want to give some excuses. 1) here the design of the lamp is not so important, the modeling procedure is the important thing. 2) not only the shape but also material defines the classical and modernity. I think by these excuses my model can be accepted for this competition.

    I have given the procedure of the modeling. It will not take from me again to model it more than 2 hours with shading. First time it took from me much time to decide the procedure to make it. I have used here nurbs modeling, loft end editable poly.

    Thank you everybody. I wish the very best for all.

    My entry


    My model is a reproduction of a beautiful Magna lamp designed by Lievore Altherr Molina Studio

    The model itself isn't complicated, but I wanted to focus on resolving topology for problematic shapes that may not be visible at first sight. Check the timelapse.

    Wires and shaded attached

    Modeling time: 1 hour 5 minutes
