Dry stone wall 3D model

Traditional dry stone wall.

This model has a natural look because it contains 170 individual rocks which pack together to form a self-standing, stable structure under the influence of simulated gravity. The front face of each rock was modelled on the shape of a real rock and the rock textures are photos of real rock textures.

You can take the wall apart rock by rock or run a physics simulation to create your own version of an old dry stone wall. Check these animations of physics simulations http://youtu.be/i4libtFl_KA http://youtu.be/cnx5BoF_Sd4

Model created using Sketchup and the Sketchyphysics plugin then exported to 3ds and obj using Sketchup Pro v8.0.

There are two versions of the model. The high poly version has a total of 44K triangular faces and the low poly version has 5K faces.

The 3ds files open OK using Blender v2.67b and the obj files open OK using MeshLab v1.3.2_64bit.

The prism-shaped rocks were packed using the Rocksolver optimisation software application to form a single-skin wall then two walls were placed parallel and leaning in on each other to simulate what happens with a real dry stone wall.
