I'm not sure if this is the correct forum. It seems the CGJobs forum is designed for long term permanent job positions. I just have a 1 time short paying project.
I'm a digital printmaker in NYC, and one of our clients purchased a model from TurboSquid.com. The model is an American Cockroach, and the model provided was a SoftImage .scn file.
We are helping him to produce this as a bronze sculpture with a local foundry. Possible CGI renderings for print, may follow...
We need to move the roaches' legs into a specific shape/position. As well as bend the roaches' antennae into a specific position.
the model needs to be cut apart in specific areas. (Legs, Antenna, Body)
We'll make ABS 3d output of the pieces. A local foundry will cast the 3d pieces and a bronze sculpture will be created...
Export out as .obj, or other format.
From here, I'll fix any holes, clean up the geometry, and produce water tight .stl's for 3d output.
We are NOT fluent in SoftImage at all, but there is rigging already included with the TurboSquid model.
If the moderators are ok with this posting in this location, great. If not, please move to the appropriate location.
Please PM if interested. We'll need an estimate of cost to manipulate the model, and cut parts. I'll send pics of the leg and antenna positioning. We'll also provide the TurboSquid model.
I also attached 3 files to this posting. Hopefully that was done correctly.
roach1.jpg - snapshot of our first bending. We'll stick to something similar
leg position.jpg - image of a sculpture we're trying to follow. We want the roaches legs to be positioned as close as possible to this reference sculpture.
rigging.jpg - Here's a snapshot from within softimage, I included the rigging provided from Turbosquid.
