SGI Wallpapers made from Techpubs graphics

Unread postby Dodoid » Mon Nov 06, 2017 3:39 pm

While looking for some vector graphics of the Origin2000, I stumbled upon the PDF versions of SGIs TechPubs documents (archived at techpubs.jurassic.nl, thanks jan-jaap!). The PDF versions contain vector images of the systems, so I thought I might make some wallpapers using Inkscape. I just had to clean up some of the weird lines they used for "faux-gradient" effects and so on, and change the colors to "Dodoid Highlight" (which I use for my channel logo, etc) on black. Here are the results, as 4K raster wallpaper images:

Some of the original drawings (in particular the O2) were a little bit strange, and I didn't fix the geometry of the lines I kept from the Techpubs version, but overall they're really nice.

There's another cool part: SGI drew the insides as well! You just have to remove the outer layers (this is from an earlier test screenshot so the color is different):

cool! Except I'm playing with my Fuel and Tezro (well and Origin 350) tonight. Also my favorite machine isn't there, Indy.

Super cool even if you didn't come across the machines I'm on right now.
