This is Mechan:
“Like Echobot, an exploring robot, this robot is searching for life-form to but reaches much higher on much rougher terrain.
It is really slow, but reach about 20 meters Heights”.
Mechan was modeled with Autodesk Maya in about 4 hours, shaded with some basic shaders and rendered with V-Ray.
To create an space environment for it, it has been exported as an .obj and imported into Vue Xstream to finalize the scenes.
This model can be bought as an 3D print!
