Model Bashing Kit

The Model Bashing Kit is a collection of hundreds of pre-built meshes and images that supercharge modo for adding technical surface complexity or creating new objects that bristle with detail for your sci-fi, military or industrial visualization projects. With all of these presets at your command, you can quickly bash out your own creations that look like you spent days painstakingly modeling them. The Kit helps you to rapidly add realistic cockpit interiors and instrumentation panels for vehicles and control rooms, and also model sci-fi structures like spaceships and moon bases. Or you can use the Kit to craft clever user interfaces for indie games, get productive in modo in a fun way, or to create highly-detailed space art.

Cockpit instrumentation created using the Model Bashing Kit.

Imagine being able to quickly lay out a cockpit or a control surface of your own design. You’ve got switch arrays, dials, digital displays, head up displays, throttles, joysticks and even an ejector seat. The Kit provides high and low polygon versions of many assets, as well as tools for baking your instrumentation into a lightweight image map that you can use again and again.

The Model Bashing Kit is more than just a collection of geometry. For convincing instrumentation, you need the textual information and display screens that bring the panel to life.

Create control surfaces in mere minutes with an arsenal of presets, plus tools that help you to produce rows and arrays of dials and switches.

This model literally took less than 3 minutes to create using the Model Bashing Kit.

What kind of moon base would you create with the Model Bashing Kit?

Many of the presets in the Kit were created by Jose Perez, whose credits include Star Trek Voyager, Battlestar Galactica and Serenity. This is a must have collection of modo building blocks that you can tear apart and join together to create futuristic structures of your own.

Included in the Kit are tools that help you to position and array objects, manage materials, and most importantly a form that brings together all the major controls for baking various types of maps, making texture baking a one click process.

 

Example of Using Model Bashing Kit

modo screen shot by Brad Peebler

“Setup took all of about 5 minutes. I created a Group item in modo and added 9 of the Kit mesh presets. Then I created a cube and with 16 polys (4x4) on each side. Using poly Bevel with some randomization I created the rough volume of the Borg Cube. Then I simply added a Surface Generator on the cube and a Replicator item. The Replicator uses the surface gen as the point source and the Group item as the source of the prototypes. This way it randomly selects each of the 9 kit greebles and slaps them onto the surface! I also quickly scaled all the mesh presets so they were roughly the same bounding area and then used the average and min spacing options on the Surface Generator to reduce the chance of overlaps. I added a few green point lights and voila! BORG ATTACK!Z “
