This robotic grasshopper i made last summer.
It was created with this as reference:
It’s a bit undersampled here and there but rendering on my xeon 1.7 Ghz was quite long already:D
Made in 3ds max 5 with brazil RS.
Mesh was about 100 mb which was a major pain when i started to animate so i devided it in several parts (xref objects). It took long to load but at least i could save it quikly:rolleyes:

I’ve redone the lighting on the grasshopper and rendered a short anim
Here you can view a short landing animation of the hopper:
