Lathe Animation

I rendered this short very amateurish half turntable animation last night.

Most of the solid modeling is done in Sketchup. It’s then exported to .obj and imported into Blender. I’ve got a file set up with materials for steel, concrete, etc, and a basic lighting rig, so I just have to do a little bit of cleanup on the model before being able to render the scene.

Feedback very welcome!

[2011-08-10 Update: Here’s a new more in-depth animation. Clearly a lot of work to do on improving my material/texture mapping skills….]
