Here we go with the last update of the Espresso MATchine!

Probably, the most challenging part was designing the Height Map because (thanks to my addiction to product design), I'd like to make it hypothetically feasible. So, during the process, I was thinking all the time about things like, 'If I need to fill the water tank, I have to open this, and maybe I could have something that reminds me to fill it when the level is low, like a light, perhaps...'

Was it useful? No.

Was it helpful to the project's success? Maybe.

Do I now have a machine that's functionally correct? No.

Amazing! Good job!

In the renders, you can see that the machine is clearly used but not dirty. In my mind, this is a product display: it is never used or put into operation, and it is in good condition, although it may have minor scratches, signs, and fingerprints from consumers who touch it. 

This is also the reason for the guarantee stickers.

Here are some of the Alphas I used. I created them with a mix of Illustrator, Photoshop, and Substance Designer.

I hope you enjoy it!
Best of luck to everyone :)
