Week TechVideo, 2013 #06 - SR 3D Builder adds pneumatics support

From time to time, when there is significant progress or new features being released, I use to show some videos from SR 3D Builder, by Sergio Reano.

It is the case again! And so I've a couple of videos to show you this time.

After 4 month of work and some preview videos, Sergio has finally released his latest version of SR 3D Builder (Ver. 0.8.3.18).
There is a long list of new features and fixes you can find in this new release. For details, have a look to the official website.

Looking at the two videos included in the presentation of this new release, you can immediately notice the news: Pneumatics support!
With this application you can not just create your models using pneumatic components, but you can also animate your model with them, like they would work in real life. Only a part of the whole LEGO pneumatic components are currently supported, but the other will be also added in further releases.

Another characteristic of the application is the computational capabilities improvement: the animation of the 8258 Crane Truck is computed in real time while the video is recorded. It runs on a Intel DualCore 3GHz PC with 4GB RAM with an old enough nVidia GT8800 and the fluidity of movement is amazing for a nearly 1900 parts LEGO Technic model.



Bravo!!


Disclaimer:

Please avoid sending requests to post specific models on this TBs section.

We understand some of you would enjoy to see your creations featured here, but please understand  that because only one video gets highlighted per week, it is impossible to accommodate all the great MOCs continuously build by the Technic builders out there. They simply won't fit all and that's also not the purpose of this blog (see the header statement).

Many of your MOCs are scanned anyway and listed for later publication when they do not fit immediately. However some remain in the backlog queue just for too long and eventually loose the relevance or the publication opportunity window. As a rule of thumb, we also avoid publishing MOCs that have been featured by their authors or other fans at some other great web places dedicated to the Technic community out there. It doesn't mean that occasionally some won't get published here anyway.



Thanks for your understanding!
