[Applause] wow hey everybody um all three of you welcome to our live modeling this week uh this week we've got the uh ever effervescent nick joining us again hello hello i'm here uh nick is uh stepping in gonna be running our sound panel and providing us with his witty banter and of course and that lovely voice is as you all know jody our oh i don't provide witty banter so oh and it's not effervescent no i will uh i'll do my best to not make fun of you any more than i normally do always uh don't make fun of me less than you do because then it feels weird yeah yeah i don't want to do that just just the right amount so yeah welcome to the the live modeling this week um i think aaron announced this on our instagram i saw something about it and he he said this too but my understanding is this is one of the most requested models that we've had since we started doing this and there's a really good reason why we have not tackled the sydney opera house yet there's actually lots and tons of good reasons why this is going to be kind of fun and may go down in a flaming wreck we'll see uh it's always always time to screw up you can you've got two hours to screw up as much as you want i'm gonna just mention real quick because i just saw nc posted uh a picture informing us that the the roof forms are spherical for the opera house and it kind of shows how the pieces would be cut out of a hemisphere yeah it's actually kind of kind of cool is this something you already figured out in your research it is in fact i'm going to be relying on that heavily in our creation of these shells so one of the things about this that's kind of fun so when you find pictures like that or you find because you know if you're going to model something like this you go out and you start doing your your search and you can find some plan views and you can find some elevation views but as you can see the actual opera house both the larger and the smaller one are at angles to these you know this uh platform that they're sitting on so your section might be it's hard it i don't i i think there are some drawings available out there but the other thing that happens is that the original drawings by uh and i i apologize if i say his name corr incorrectly uh bjorn utzen the architect who designed this as they tried to figure out the shells and the geometry and how to actually build this um they went through multiple iterations so one of the things you'll see out there is you'll see iterations and you're not always sure if you're seeing an iteration drawing or an actual drawing as it is kind of let's see but the the same is true if we look so this is probably what you're seeing or is being shared out there jody is there's yep there's a number of examples in fact that my understanding is there's a kind of little platform at the opera house itself that shows something similar to this that shows that all the shells were created from a sphere and some of these they'll show kind of like how it is that um then you'll see some drawings like this which again show the shells but i don't know jody nick could either of you interpret this into like something that is usable let me give me five minutes in sketchup i'll i'll figure it out yeah it doesn't look like it should be that hard exactly [Laughter] that's the thing is that there's um this was finally the image that for me that cracked it and i'm gonna show you why this made it feasible to draw the shells but even this one doesn't match up with for example say this one that says the large shell is 73 degrees this one's 45 62 and 83 um is not the same as as what this is i've i've measured them so which one's correct uh and that one and that one and that one um so all that to say what we're going to do today is kind of get uh you know an approximation of the opera house and um i my hope is to take it kind of like uh what a an architect's model or a maquette would be and then maybe at the end if we have some time we'll we'll actually drop it into v-ray and see if we can model it there yeah v-ray kind of like it was so we won't get into a high level of detail we'll get sort of just into a sort of massing level of detail because we'll spend a fair amount of time getting these shells in just the basic form correct but that's what we're gonna do just in an effort to take some of the load off it looks like uh jordan utzen passed in 2008 so chances are pretty good he will not call you out if you if your angles if your uh your percentages are off or your degrees uh well my understanding he said yeah is that they have actually enlisted his son who's also an architect to help redo some of the interior which was not all done with his original vision some of the interior was finished out in ways that didn't reflect the original vision of jor newton so they're working with it's had an unfinished basement for 50 years oh no that's just you and me uh and chat said that he's at 4am from city oh man no pressure holy moly you got this you got this do it um just click a few buttons i hope after this that you'll enjoy going uh going back and getting some sleep but that's thank you so the part of the reason just as a quick look if you can see how this one shows actually it gives us lines that shows where you cut through the sphere like we we look straight down and part of the reason is some of the images you can find you don't know if they're orthographic or in perspective but this one also gives us cutting angles and we're going to use those those are going to be important what do you say uh maraconi was wondering if you could sort of talk about what it's like using that wonky mouse of yours while modeling because he's looking at getting one this uh is referred to as a vertical mouse and for those of us like if you use flat mouse for a long time and you start to get kind of this i i like it quite a lot it's fairly easy to uh to use so i don't know what else to say about it it's just a vertical mouse and it's just a different way to hold your hand that's a little more natural i find it very comfortable it doesn't feel any this and it doesn't feel weird to use versus a flat mouse uh doesn't have been using it long enough yeah don't grab my style yeah oh uh aaron making stuff is on he wants to know why you're not done yet oh uh because i was like totally enraptured with this instagram account where this guy's like modeling stuff in sketchup and then casting it in resin it's insane everybody should go check out aaron making stuff instagram account because the guy's a genius maybe a mad evil genius but a genius we'll see if maybe uh this will inspire him to create a sydney opera house uh like a cast that yeah okay so your process is literally you're creating it you're gonna create a dome and then cut the chunks for the roofs that is correct we are going to create a dome um and and uh is it per building because there's three buildings yes but as best i understand this the smaller build they're they're identical you know this one's smaller and if they're not identical we're certainly going to make them so and this one out here um we'll use some of these existing roof for

Thanks Wilma your participation is very much appreciated
