One World Trade Center will Have Fastest Elevators in Western Hemisphere
http://highrisefacilities.com/one-wo...rn-hemisphere/

Quote:
With 104 stories towering 1,776 feet-tall, One World Trade Center is the tallest building in the Americas. The building will include the fastest elevators in the Western Hemisphere at 23 mph. Travel time from the lowest to the highest floor will be a mere 60 seconds.

Laid end to end, the steel cables used in the elevators span 198 miles, or approximately the distance from New York City to Baltimore. The elevators’ counterweights total more than one-million-pounds or comparable to the weight of about 250 cars.

The vertical-transportation systems in One World Trade Center are being built by ThyssenKrupp Elevator including 71 elevators and 11 escalators. Five of the elevators will have a capacity of 4000 pounds and run at 2,000 feet-per-minute. A crew of 90 ThyssenKrupp Elevator mechanics is scheduled to complete the project by 2014.

The infographic below lists some of the incredible stats involved in this monumental project:

--- Soon there will be another cluster of bright lights from Tall Buildings in the far west side of Manhattan.... the Hudson Yards.

Finally, a properly sourced info graphic. Best of all, they didn't even plagiarize my work.

Alright, the Wall Street Journal article has stepped it up a notch. They stole my newer model, and updated the graphic.

I present to you: Plagiarism at its finest!

Go to the competition newspaper with the plagiarism story, I guess, they'll love it.

That's not even the best part. He updated it with another model by me. He had to actually go through the process of downloading my newer model, copy/pasting into the file with the rings, rendering it, and then post it again without giving credit.

Edit: another member the forums gave me a large it of help. I'll try to work with the guy.

Special note. Mouse over to the bottom right of the paragraph to expose a very faint word bubble/circle, and then leave a kind message. Keep it classy, I would post if I could without looking bad, but you guys can feel free.
Did you upload your models to google warehouse? Can you set up your licensing settings for the models you put there?

My other question is - why? If you put all this energy into creating these valuable models and you're concerned about people using them without giving you credit, why do you make them publicly available? A 3d model is much harder to keep track of than a photo as it can be altered and rendered in million different ways.
Also - if it's an accurate model of the spire - it can be hard to tell whose model it is. There are several detailed 3d models that the architects and cgi companies created for this building. (Although in this case I'm sure you recognize your own)

If I were you I'd just put my models up to turbosquid so pple who need them at least pay a few hundred bucks.

Because I want people like you guys to be able to mess around with it and figure out how they look. Besides, it's also against the T.O.S. and Privacy Policy of the warehouse for a third party to use the models without credit given. Besides that, it's the fact that the Wall Street Journal is stealing free material and passing it as their own to paying subscribers. And I know for a fact that it is my model. In the first version that was posted on WSJ, the spire was my V2 model, the one without a completed section that I left with three simple rectangles as a stand in for the structure in addition to the fact that he left the temporary platforms on it. Hell, I put half my renderings on YouTube in the Creative Commons, but regardless of use or means of acquirement, credit must be given. The other reason to be tough on plagiarism is the fact that if he's stealing my work, he's probably stealing others' work also. In response to the work I put in to the models being worth making a profit off of. I made them with the intent of sharing. There are however some models that will not be shared, or others that are in components. I'll try to use some in a YouTube project I'm working on. If you want your mind blown, the newest version of the spire is about 1/4 the file size and was created in two days of casual work. The secret is step by step phased modeling.

Peter, as much as I (and surely some others) respect your spirit of sharing your work, you can't expect everybody to follow the rules, there will always be a douche trying to steal another's work and claim it as theirs (particularly when the work is well executed). My recommendation is to take down all of your complete, heavy models and keep the ones that aren't that difficult to produce. I, in your case, would upload a simplified and/or primitive version of every model and add contact information to the description for those who are willing to get the whole pack. There I could have at least control of who is downloading my material.

Sorry to hear about people stealing your work, Pmad.

You should add, if you haven't already, bigger watermarks to your work.

... Those are my basic models, well, comparatively. I still have the airport hangers, a plane, several Calatrava inspired bridges, and the Burj Kalifa that will never be uploaded. Besides, making a deal out of the thing with the WSJ spreads my name arround. I also did experiments with the Path Hall, before uploading a small section of the memorial above. Besides, I haven't uploaded the new stuff I've been working on because it's for use in the rendering project I have previously mentioned. Also, If I don't share things like the ESB corner model then modeling each brick is kind of ridiculous. In addition to modeling I do other stuff. I'd love to publish a piano piece or short story, but I only do sketches and simple fugue fragments to pass some time and experiment. The only significant photography project I have uploaded to flickr is a simulated tilt-shift image from a private plane of a football stadium. I assure you that I have things that I'll only show in renderings. Speaking of rendering, I've got a list of five second fly-overs I want to include in my channel ad/portfolio (order of Rendering/ re-rendering):
1-ESB Exterior Corner (Failed Render)
2-4WTC (Already Renderd)
3-Street Sign (Grand Finally)
4-3WTC (Bare steel and first cladding panels)
5-NYT Building (Extremely Heavy)
6-M1280D (Failed on frame 8 after 15min per frame)
7-"Fence" (a super detailed shed and fence)
8?-Most advanced animation (waiting for new Comp. dispersion, refraction, glass sign with the first two bars of my favorite musical piece BWV 552)

When I say heavy I mean HEAVY I upload a lot of the complex models in sections because I make them for the challenge and learning opportunity and then forget them. I do a lot of the work from 9:00PM to 10:00PM to allow me to fit them into my schedule.

I'm working on a universal logo that can go on my videos, images, literature (Should I finish anything), and music (fugues are hard to write). I'm down to medium turquoise as a background, blue for my name, and teal for intermediate details. those work as black on white with a black outline.
