3D Vacuum Modeling - Happy


I initially wanted to do a Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner, but I quickly realized the amount of work it would take and the time I didn’t have with graduation approaching. So, I went with a 70s style cleaner and chose red because of the multiple emotions the color can evoke.

Using joints was surprisingly easy, however, you must be careful with the object’s geometry. Vertices must line up if there are multiple objects you want to deform in the same direction—and do so smoothly.
