X-Ray Machine in Blender 2

User Testing - finalising my model of an x-ray machine

This entry is part 20 of 20 in the series My X-Ray model project

So you may remember that we started this project with an overall plan that follows the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) approach to remodel a 3D likeness of an x-ray machine that I first modeled a year ago for a presentation at EuroPCR 2016 – the official annual meeting of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) and the world-leading Course in Interventional Cardiovascular Medicine. Here is the diagram

How did I make the x-ray machine model?

(Sorry – this is a repost as my database corrupted and I had to do a restore. Annoying as I had been in a hurry and had not done my normal post-post backup. Lucky I had a copy of the text.) I’m a Blender noob, so let me show how I used my simple skills to make the objects. Now the bench was really easy. Essentially it is a whole

The model of the monitor is complete

Well, didn’t this go quickly? The project is almost complete; much faster than expected.  I threw together the medical monitor today. Here it is from a couple of different angles: As you can see it also has a ceiling mount. I have not placed any images on the monitor, but I have created a texture that would easily permit images to be added as suitable for whatever process in being undertaken

C-arm broad design for 3D x-ray model

This entry is part 5 of 20 in the series My X-Ray model project

Hi all, Below is a diagram where I have deconstructed the various photos and videos of X-Ray machine C-arms into their various components in preparation for my Blender build. Obviously there is a lot of guesswork involved, but it is all I need to go forward with this design. As you will see I have identified six discrete objects. I pondered a bit over the Image Intensifier and it’s interface

Control panel design for 3D x-ray model

This entry is part 4 of 20 in the series My X-Ray model project

Just a short post today. It’s been a busy day job-hunting without a lot on this being achieved. So I have created my folder of reference photos. As mentioned before, I find Toshiba’s Infinix a wonderfully designed piece of equipment. Obviously this is from a aesthetic perspective because I don’t have the technical knowledge to comment upon how well it works. But it really does look like a machine of

3D x-ray model project - Phase2: Planning

This entry is part 3 of 20 in the series My X-Ray model project

Continuing with following a project methodology to create a model of an x-ray machine, I am working on the Planning phase. “The Planning Process Group consists of those processes performed to establish the total scope of the effort, define and refine objectives, and develop the course of action required to attain those objectives.” – A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) Fifth Edition Design A generic x-ray

3D X-ray model - my project charter

This entry is part 2 of 20 in the series My X-Ray model project

As mentioned previously, my first step is to set out a project charter for how I am going to approach creating this new model of an x-ray machine. So here it is: Charter Purpose My purpose is to create a 3D model of an x-ray machine that can be sold at an online market place. Ideally it will be rigged, but this is not essential. Success Criteria 1. Shaped like

Top level project lifecycle for new x-ray machine model

This entry is part 1 of 20 in the series My X-Ray model project

  Some of you may remember that around this time last year I designed a 3D model of an X-ray machine that my brother-in-law used in a presentation at an international conference in Paris. At the time I was really struggling with my eyes and I was very dissatisfied with the outcome, despite the good reception it received in Paris. So one of my projects while unemployed is to create a
