On March 2019, I have selected to join a robotic competition in China call GARC, (I forgot the full word). The Competition was tough, I said tough because the rule of the competition is really hard to do it. My team have four people, we work together really well but sometime we argue a lot because sometime we have different idea to build the robot but however it not break us apart. On the day of competition we don’t if we lost or win but the only thing our point is -148 (negative 148) because if we don’t finish the mission they will add the full score and minus our score. After the competition we have a great time there with other people from other country.
I first start 3D modeling in 2017 and now is 2019 it been 2 year for me. For that 2 year I learn and explore how to make this make that until 2019 January I start to make some thing our of what I know. I first try to make something small like a Cup
Something like that not really look interesting because I’m just a beginner. Now I try to make something look more interesting like this
This house I didn’t finish the texture it yet because I just finish modeling.
This is Call a Toon shader is texture for cartoon example like Spider man in to spider verse texture.
A good texture also need lighting if our light is not look good our model also not look good. Photorealistic is a lot of work because you need to work on texturing, a realistic texture need normal map, bump map, rough, displasment map, spec map and more that I’m not sure. I’m still learning how to texture for 3d model.
On 12 march 2019 my team been to Singapore to Join FLL Competition. Is my first time on a plane, after we arrived Singapore at 4 pm which is 3 pm in Cambodia, our teacher drop us at our host family. My host family was very friendly, they have 1 son and 1 daughter, they was 7 and 5 year old. On 13 march we (my team) went to the school that where we join the competition. The school name is CIA, the school was big, 13 is not our day to compete so we were look around what are they doing how do they compete the robot and to know the school well because we can get lost in that school cause is so big.
On 14 march is our compete day, our time to compete is around 2:00 to 2:40 pm. We were all nervous because there is a lot of team that we need to compete with and we need to present to the Judge, but it went really well on our presentation the Judge love it, on the robot performance my team robot doesn’t work, we only get about 16 to 15 which is very low the point when we practice at school is 166 to 170. It was very disappointed I was so sad on that day. After the competition I didn’t do anything else just go back home get dinner and sleep.
On 15 march, our teacher took us to downtown to just to release our stress, we saw a lot of thing, we saw a giant tree but not a real tree, we saw a floating baby statue, and more. In the afternoon Bopha host family invite us to go to his work, he work in Cloudera, Cloudera is just google drive, it keep data in cloud. One thing we wouldn’t believe that we been to the final both team.
On the final day they they lead us upstairs to their basketball court, there were 120 team from different school include us. One fact, we are the only team from Cambodia. They give us two practice round and three round for the final, but only one round is used to compare with other teams. That round is the one that has the most points out of the three final rounds we were given. However on the first two round, my robot didn’t work, but luckily it work on the third round. After the competition round we for 3 hour for the result. When the result come my get one award it call ” Oversea Team Award best performance team”
