Using 3ds Max to create a 3D model of the Virtual Boy.
I was looking for one the other day but could not find one.
I read a post here that some people were interested in one, so I decided to start my own.

currently an hour and a half into creating the model.
Only problem is I do not have an eye shade or a stand.

Anyone have a side view and front view of the eye shade and the stand?

I will make the 3D model downloadable and free.

Always open to constructive criticism.
Please not the grey parts are not textured yet.

I have got some parts 3D modelled, I use Solidworks so mine is dimensionally accurate, copy of the stand as a 3D pdf enclosed.
I have not done the head unit or visor, but hopefully this will help you out.

Awesome! This helps a lot. It wont look as good in 3ds max considering I am free styling it and not doing exact measurements but this PDF render helps a lot for the stand.

Thanks.

No problem, I'm pleased you like it. You do know its a 3D viewable pdf, not just a render, you can rotate, pan, zoom, hide parts, make them transparent etc.
I see yours is more stylized, I'm a 3D draughtsman so being dimensionally accurate is the thing I try and achieve, but so long as you keep that style its will look good once you have it finished.

stand portion is looking much better now that I have a suitable reference. Still a long way to go on this.

Need a verdict on this. Constructive criticism welcome. Ended up free styling the visor considering all I have to go off of are crappy google images.

Not bad at all, a stylized version sure, but it works, looks like a VB.
If anything you could have made it a little more angular with smaller filleted edges, but considering you don't have a unit in front of you to go on its pretty good.

My recommendation, buy a VB, play it, then if you find you still have free time, tweak your model a little.
