Create a Mars-Lander Animation in Blender 2.8 – Part 2 – The Lower Engine Cover

This is the second part of the creation of a Mars-Lander Animation. In this video I will create the lower engine cover. This can be done in many ways, but I always try to do it non-destructively so changes can be done without much effort. Addons can help you speedup your workflow quite a bit, so I will show you how to create the engine cover with and without addons.

  1. What am I doing wrong. In part 2 of the tutorial I have a gap between segments. Hard to explain without a screenshot but I hope you get the idea. I tried using hardops but twist 360 was not working at all, no matter what I did. Blender version maybe 2.80

    • Hi Michael, nice to hear you are working on the Mars Lander. Can you send a screenshot or even better the blendfile to info[@] I will definitely take a look at it and let you know asap. Thanks and have a nice evening.

    • Hi Michael, if you check the “merge” and “first and last copies” checkbox on the array modifier it will be fixed. I will send you an updated blend-file. Really curious how your model will progress. Keep me posted if you like:)

    • Hi Michael, I just sent you an email with some details how to get Hard Ops working on this model. If you don’t see it please check your Spam-folder. Can you let me know if the explanation helps?
