Electric Motor

Growing up, small electric motors held tremendous promise. Add a few plastic gears, axles, rubberband timing belts, and you could rig up your own invention. Out of reverence for this small token of possibility, I decided to model and render a somewhat glamorized shiny electric motor. I already have plans for building virtual gizmos with it which may or may not involve Stafano Saleri’s BMG. I used static particles for the copper wire inside the insulation as well as copper-and-green colorbands and colored clouds textures applied to the specularity color of the casing metal to give my best impersonation of what these little motors really look like. Enjoy!
