I used to make graphics and I still do. Some are old and some are new. Either way they’re here for you. Hip hip hooray and whoop-de-doo!
CVT Transmission 3D Animation
Though I am not personally a fan of CVT transmissions and would never own a vehicle that used one, I do find them to be a fascinatingfeat of mechanical engineering. pretty neat little xPresso rig set up to make the gears function properly.
This has been a controversial design concept, and I’m happy that Darpa chose Joe Ryan and I to create the mockup animation that was used to present and win a contract for several million dollars to develop this vehicle.
It’s hard to explain the benefits of a piece of engineering this large without showing what goes on inside. That’s exactly what I helped with. AMF provided some super complex CAD files that I was able to convert and bring into my 3D land. Then I turned it all into an interactive Android app for use at a trade show.
