3D Air Cart Rig

This fully rigged 3D model of the Versatile Air Cart was created in Autodesk Maya. It has a hydraulic swinging auger with a wide range of movement. The buckets are connected with a dynamic hair system allowing them to bend realistically to gravity as the auger swings. The original model was developed by Versatile's engineers using Inventor. After bringing it into Maya I cleaned up the geometry, created the rig, provided the lighting and completed the final render.
