Hi All. I am doing a 3D render/animation of the 5 Doctors console to be used on an upcoming Classic Doctor Who DVD release for the BBC. I need the definitive answer to the following questions.
- How many sides are there to the layers in the 5 Doctors style time column. I've read 7, 8,10 and 11 on this site. I have to do an overhead shot looking down and personally this HAS to be right. Otherwise people like you will point and say 'Thats not right!!'
- What are the positions for the pegs that separate the X sided layers
-And Finally, I know the arrangement on the white and red lights, but what levels are they at, Ideally I'd like to know what that whole inside is made..
But I do need this info ASAP as I'm past my deadline for the animation . But they can wait because it has to be perfect!! ;D

Thanks Marc, you could always send them to me at who3d. But if your upload speed is slow don't worry about it
here you go, all running well today.
not majorly huge resolution, but should be of some use
If I did my research properly: The inner rods are staggered at alternating positions and the outer ones just move in, in relation to the points. It starts with 4 rods at the bottom and at the top the first few layers are the same.
-Marc PS... its interesting, I've never known maya to put so much antialiasing into its renders when saving as a JPG. Maybe I've just been using BMP, PNG and TIF previously? hmmm...
