Asteroids are an amazing resource of water, rare metals and iron. A perfect stepping stone towards the stars
Designing the Vernier Rig
The secondary aspect was to design and provide a rapid mockup of a hero vehicle, in this instance we design a Deep Space Exploratory Vehicle (DSEV) Mining Rig named Vernier, based on the Vernier Thrusters used in high altitude adjustments.
The Initial designs were thus:
Once the side profile was mapped out and designed, it was a relatively straightforward affaird to paint in a front side profile and apply a quick colour pass.
