SF Lunar Rover Vehicle and Module Trailer

3D Lunar Rover & Module Trailer

Model 8 of 8 of the series now available for 3DS MAX, Poser / DAZ Studio, Shade 3D, Vue and Bryce.

The Lunar Rover is a highly mobile, sturdy transport vehicle for a driver and three passengers (more if they ride outside). The vehicle comes with its own external lighting system, and a trailer for transporting goods; a robotic module manipulator makes it easy to pick up and move modules, loading or unloading the external trailer.

This is the bonus model for Near Future: Lunar Colony Volume 1 R2 and not sold separately. If you want this model, order the Complete Edition. Continue reading SF Lunar Rover Vehicle and Module Trailer

SF Lunar Reclamation Plant for Better Moon Living

Reclamation Plant (700 x 300)

Model 7 of 8 of the series now available for 3DS MAX, Poser / DAZ Studio, Shade 3D, Vue and Bryce.

Early lunar colonies have to be extremely efficient with recycling and water processing, and for every few living habitats there should also be a reclamation plant. The lunar reclamation plant utilizes solar power to purify water. Water is processed in external drums, with an external control and processing system that can be handled directly and externally on the main unit, or remotely from within the Control Module. Inside are additional storage tanks for purified water and a control room that allows management of the external system or of remote systems if the network is online.

SF Regolith Mining Robot Mines Moon’s Surface

Regolith Mining Robot

Model 6 of 8 of the series now available for 3DS MAX, Poser / DAZ Studio, Shade 3D, Vue and Bryce.

Lunar mining is all about mobility, with all bases and robots being highly mobile. The Regolith Mining Robot utilizes a broad, open collector that can scrap materials off of the surface of the moon (smaller vehicles can also scoop and collect). The regolith is then shaken and separated, allowing useful particles to be collected. These are then packed into modules that are then shuttled off by a delivery bot to a nearby base for refining (and later, to a builder bot).

SF 3D Regolith Mining Base Released in Lunar Colony Series

Regolith Mining Base

Model 4 of 8 of the series now available for 3DS MAX, Poser / DAZ Studio, Shade 3D, Vue and Bryce.

Mobile mining bases travel across the surface of the Moon, collecting and packing the loose material Regolith for processing into usable materials that are then formed into component blocks. Each base has a constant delivery of empty modules by robotic carts (included) that then return to central storage full of useful materials. Includes the robot cart and modules. Continue reading SF 3D Regolith Mining Base Released in Lunar Colony Series

Hydroponics Module Added to Content Paradise

Hydroponics Module 3DHydroponics Module (model 2 of 8 of Near Future: Lunar Colony Volume 1) is a self contained system for raising plant life that not only generates oxygen but also edibles. As with other modules, it has an airlock chamber in case it is not attached to an array of modules. The system is complete with lighting and air filters, and several internal tanks to store a back up reserve that isn’t automatically channeled off for use in other modules.

You can now get the Hydroponics Module on Content Paradise.

SF 3D Mass Driver Released in Lunar Colony Series

Mass Driver Science Fiction 3D Model

Now available for 3DS MAX, Poser / DAZ Studio, Shade 3D, Vue and Bryce.

With gravity only 1/6 that of Earth, Lunar Mass Drivers can leverage shooting payloads over the horizon and need not be angled like a cannon. This Lunar Mass Driver includes an airlock and control center (with toiletries for long work days), with a connected Mag-Lev chamber. External generators utilize the solar panels and other power sources to help build a high enough magnetic charge to launch module sized objects hard enough to propel them into space.
