KITTs Dashboard in 3D

Post by ChrisFTB » Wed Dec 28, 2005 2:34 pm

Hello!
Maybe you remember my last voicebox wallpaper.
Right now, I am creating something very special:

KITTs 2nd Season Dashboard- full 3D and animated.

Powerboard, Tachometer and Speedometer are already done, currently I am working on the Voicebox.


Here are two screenshots:

Those pics seem sweet.

Which 3D program are you using for your project?

Just wondering. I got 3ds max 7, though I'm pretty much an amateur at it.

here is a pic of the voicebox:

now, I only have to do the Monitors and Dummy-Displays, then is it time for the "hard job"- the Dashboard itself....

By the Way: Happy New Year!!! :)

As a suggestion, maybe you could make wallpapaers too out of some of these parts? That vox box looks awesome! :)

The VOXBOX one does look good.

Not sure whether the rest of the dash would work as wallpaper.

The dash is gonna be hard to do. So many LEDs!

that dash looks BRILLIANT!!! You should make it into a flash thing like somebody did once. Maybe the person could combine flash skills with your 3d dash. http://www.agostonl.com/kr/dash2flash/#
that would look mad!!!

Awesome work! You have a great attention to details, the readoutpanels & voicebox looks dead on accurate to the show!
You still need the top countdown, lower displays and PANP buttons to make a complete dashboard ;)
I've made the dash display drawings too but used just a photoeditor, not a 3d program:

Thanks :) Do you mean using the display panels or the dashboard body? I don't have any completed dashdrawing, only the MPH, RPM, etc display panels. The dash body in the pic I drew around those panels just for the dualmonitor picture.
Haven't gotten doing yet the other parts of the dashboard like that monitorpic except KITT & KARR voicebox but the displaypanels in the vbox pics aren't my best efforts... :oops:

Here's my first attempt from 2002 or 2003 for MPH drawing, I later redid the displaypanels with more accurate fonts etc. and the dualmonitor picture is the first pic with redone displaypanels.
