Project: Rubber Tyred Gantry crane for use in Unity
Purpose: Asset for use in in-house virtual crane control training system.
The challenge: Siemens sometimes uses 3D models for 3D visualization using a game engine. We had to develop a detailed 3D low-poly model of a specific RTG with realistic textures. The ground is realistically sloping for drainage, and Siemens made our crane models respond to gravity and real-life forces in this virtual environment. 3D modeling had to be accurate with a proper file structure, enabling others to work on our files afterward. Our source info came in 2D CAD form, and converting manually 2D CAD into low-poly 3D textured models to scale was the central part of this project. They also needed a detailed 3D model of a 12 m shipping container. The resultant models are recyclable and helpful for 3D rendering or 3D animation, where these models are part of a much larger environment.
