Let me introduce C.A.D, the Climbing Assistant Drone. This little guy can carry 10 climbing pitons in its magazine as well as one pressurized air can. Result: C.A.D will scan the cliff you are climbing and automatically determine the safest path for you. Then, it will shoot the pitons like a nail gun into the cliff, and the last thing you have to do is to use them as you climb up. No need for a partner (or yourself) to hammer the pitons anymore, C.A.D’s got your back! This project was fun to imagine and realize. To achieve it, I firstly modeled a high-poly hard surface mesh in ZBrush, then made a low poly version in Maya. Finally, I textured it in Substance Painter and rendered it with Arnold.
I hope you will like this work. See you later for another 3D project!
