SketchyPhysics Excavator / Digger (J-m@n's model!!)

Bouke B.
First things first. I did NOT create the excavator itself! It's J-m@n's model. I tried to make one myself, but it couldn't really pull it off, so i used this one. A thousand thumbs up for J-m@n's awesome model! You will need SketchyPhysics 2 Animating this thing with SketchyPhysics was harder than I thought it would be. I had planned on making sort of a terrain where the digger could actually dig up things, but that dind't work out. I had to turn of the gravity, or the hydraulic pumps and the arms wouldn't stay on straight. Everything would just fall over. Because the gravity is turned off I couldn't make it in a way it can actually drive. You can still control the wheels (with a controller). As always, I've programmed to work with an Xbox 360 controller, but it's just the wheels and the steering. Because the model is pretty high polygon, it's not that fast, but it still works pretty good. Almost everything is animated. I'm pretty pleased with the result. Check out the interior. The steering wheel moves and even the little nob on the steering wheel moves. I've also made switches for the arm and the bucket, wich also move. Oh well, just check it out ;) #360 #arm #arms #black #buttons #cabin #CAT #chair #construction #dig #digger #electronics #engine #Excavator #gravel #ground #hydraulic #hydraulics #interior #ladder #Liebherr #mechanic #mechanics #moter #motor #oil #Physics #pump #pumps #sand #Sketchy #Sketchyphysics #sketchyphysics2 #steer #steering #support #tire #tires #wheel #wheels #xbox #xbox360 #xbox_360 #yellow
