Construction Robot

Through out the build of this model I kept in mind that when animated the mechanical systems should be able to assume all the nessesary poses to function with out the mechanical systems exceeding their limits aswell as being believable in their proportions and appearance.

I was inspired by the Power loader from the movie Aliens and the complexity of the APU from the Matrix.

I also converted the model to be 3D printed the print was also metal plated in copper.
