Yeah, it is quite useful for drawing, but since I still haven't used any 3d rendering software much, I had to ask. I've seen people use it for adding characters in filmed footage, but industrial design is way more accurate. This method is used a lot in engineering though, so it might depend on the software itself (like AutoCad, etc.).
Maybe we should try, since the machines' models are quite simple.
Thanks for the link! I didn't know that it was called like that (we could use both wireframed and outlined models).
For example, wireframes could be used for the splash screen, press kits, units' descriptions (for @Judas' MACHINES' app idea, for example), etc. And outlined models could be used for a strategic and tactical guide, a booklet with everything you need to know about MACHINES!
Also, I've been thinking about the following: this will be a product open to the public since it is going to be made thanks to the collective contributions of this community. So, what if we put as a splash screen a line-up of different machines similar to the original concept art? That way we could represent the variety of people that form this gestalt. Simpler, and it could be used as promotional material as well.
Besides, we will need to fix the original models anyway. Right?
