Description:

The old Lego Technic Bulldozer was published in 1993 under the set number 856. It has a total of 172 pieces of Lego, 46 individual Lego parts+2 rubber bands. The rig sould be identical to the original model. I made two easy sliders for the main arms, and a simple object to move the whole Bulldozer.

Note: It's possible to tweak the slider who controls the shovel too much, thats because it's rotating limit changes as the main arm gets lifted/lowered(so keep that in mind when you move the main arm up and down).

I must say that I enjoyed every little part of this project, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did^^

    i love the lighting, and the textures are really good, may i ask how did you create your textures or materials?

    Thanks:) I gathered a bunch of reference images and studied the original Lego material. Then I basically just made the materials^^ It takes a lot of practice to figure out how much glossiness you need etc. You really need to compare your material to the real object, then continue making changes until your happy with your result. The Lego logo is a simple normalmap, I also added a texture for scratches to give it some variety in the reflection, makes it less "clean". Hope this answers your question:3

    Well done, the modelling and composting. What I liked most is the texture you gave the parts. I tried to render but blender didnt want to and quit itself. I dont think its a Problem with your blend, but with my PC. All in all, very nice model.
