AR Mars Colony

AR Mars Colony

#AR #3D

This summer I embarked on a journey! I started my Masters in Digital Arts and Science at the University of Florida, and in my first semester I got some cool things going.

I learned how to 3D model, UV unwrap, and texture using Maya and Substance Painter. Our project of choice was to make a Mars Colony scene, and I was tasked with modeling the Rocket and the HAB.

Here are some pictures of that process:

And if you want to check out the models I made for yourself, you can take a look at my sketchfab.

The final step of the (long) process was also the most satisfying -- putting it all together. I used Adobe Aero to create a quick test AR scene with my rocket first, and then I put together all the students models into an awesome little Mars AR scene.

If you want to give it a try yourself, download Adobe Aero on the appstore, and then click on this link: https://adobeaero.app.link/3lh7RWQEUtb

Looking forward to the next steps of this masters program, and making more cool stuff :)


A webmention is a way for anyone to interact with my content on any platform they like. Most of mine are on Twitter, but if you prefer to "like", "repost", or "mention" my post on any platform like Tumblr, or Reddit, that works too! Here's what you have to do: you can post a link to this post on your social media of choice, or even your own site, and I'll receive a notification. In a few hours, your post should show up below as a mention. Alternatively, if I post a link to this post on Twitter (as an example) and you like, repost, or reply to that tweet, those interactions will show up here as well! Here's the official Webmention description:

Webmention is a web standard for mentions and conversations across the web, a powerful building block that is used for a growing federated network of comments, likes, reposts, and other rich interactions across the decentralized social web.
