NASA Challenge: Develop 3D Models for Robonaut Simulation-Blanket Stand
- Status: Closed
- Prize: $150
- Entries Received: 9
- Winner: tarun3693
We (NASA) need to develop a number of high resolution 3D models to be used for Robonaut simulations. These 3D models are to be developed based on photographs of real items (see attached files). These simulated objects would be used for various grasp and manipulator testing.
This particular challenge is to build a 3D model of an Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA or spacewalk) Handrail. This item will be used by the Robonaut team to develop vision and grasping controls to increase R2's ability to interact with non-rigid, compliant objects in its workspace. It will be particular valuable to have an accurate location of the two quarter turn fasteners that hold the blanket in place.
Note that the pictures for this item were taken for two configurations. One with the blanket closed and one with the blanket open. Since the blanket is not visible in all angles, some of the images may be duplicate.
Submissions should provide the models for both the open blanket and closed blanket configurations.
There is a scale in the attached imagery is in inches. All final model submissions must be delivered in on of the following formats: .prt (Solidworks, ProE); .step or .stp; .iges; .stl; .dae. NOTE: Freelancer submissions will need to be image file views of your model. If you win the contest, you will then send/transfer the model files to NASA via email, dropbox, etc.
All entries will be judged on the accuracy, quality, and fidelity (detail) of the model produced. Note that where highly similar top submissions are produced, the submission entered first will win.
“Tarun3693 did an great job of creating a detailed 3D model of a blanket stand for use in our NASA Robonaut simulation. This was a contest and this was the winning submission.”
