Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


One of my regular cabinetmaker/furniture builders brought me in this unique table the other day, his wife designed it, but they were stuck on what to do for a top, so they asked me if I could come up with something "funky"

This is what I came up with, showed it to the wife this morning, and she loved it.

My buddy tried talking her into a solid maple top, but she wasn't hearing it. The edge detail will be done in "bloodwood" to match the drawer box. The center will be maple.

I'm very new to rendering. Learned a lot from Kerky the last few days. Anyways, a bar I've done a lot of work for asked me to make a tap handle with lights for their in-house brewed beer. DAM is the owners initials. Fun to play with at least. Sure I have lots to learn.

I think that's a big hurdle right now. Taking the CAD software to the next level would probably tale a lot more work, and beefier machines than most are using.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


This is something I was playing around with about 6 years ago and just never finished the prints. It's all exterior modeled, nothing interior. Fairly large home, somewhere around 12K SF. Modeled in Revit.

The car came from one of the online catalogs of 3d cars, it is an older model Caddy CTS I think. I converted it to a Revit file.

The mapping comes from a myriad of places. Most from Revit. The wall shingles were a custom one done by myself. It actually started off as blue. The mapping that Revit has is so so. It's not very seamless. Has quite the pattern to it.



This is the opposite side of the home. You can see that I had a problem with the modeling of the curved roof. I never figured out how to fix it.

I did model the windows though for future usage in my Revit program. I still use it for interior renders of kitchens.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


This is one I was just playing around with. I am working at a clients house that is a turn of the century type home. One of the things I like about living and working in New England is that there are some really nice architectural details, more along the line of what I feel is the PROPER way of doing things. This Wal-Mart mentality we have today just makes things dull and soulless for everyone.

This is the opposite side of the home. You can see that I had a problem with the modeling of the curved roof. I never figured out how to fix it.
Most 1k aspect ratio or less (1000x1000) texture maps if repeated more than 4-5 times, visibly in a scene, generally start to show they are tiles. It's a level of detail in the texture image vs pixel aspect vs level of detail in the rendered 'view' kind of deal. LOL insert Charlie Brown adult speaking voice LOL However that is the essence of the loose formula for minimizing the appearance of tiling. One of the 'issues' that drove >me< away from strictly CAD based rendering applications.

Kent, correct me if I'm wrong- Revit does not have UV mapping. In the sense that you can alter the models UV projections in UV space after the object/mesh has been created.

At first glance on the round roof appears to be cubic mapped. Cone primitives are hard to properly texture without Explicit UV Mapping or a custom texture image made for that specific shape.

Still even with the issues you pointed out...that is a good rendering and imho a Great Rendering out of revit.

Apply Moore's law and it will happen much sooner than later, I think. The developers of Cad software are in no hurry to change up their cash cow or make great modifications effecting the herd using it. AKA Autodesk, nothing wrong with that either. Just consider, though, they own applications from basic cad to the most used 3D applications to image modeling apps to Editing to Animation to ..... They could easily take it up a notch. Though market share by division and end user costs may suffer.

Moore's Law started breaking down 10 years ago, or a little longer, and it's has only been getting worse. Affordable SSDs however, are a big advancement. The bottle neck still remains with data transfer across busses, and how the tasks are split between CPU and GPU, and then there's the multicore and APU wild card. I agree the hardware will come in line faster than the software.

Powerful software that takes over a lot of what people now do is way more expensive than anything I've seen for construction (7 figures at least) and runs on systems costing $50K for a starter system. I could see a design service that's used by a lot of firms being able to afford something like that, but in general it's tough for me to imagine the design software guys being able to foot the bill for the software development - probably 9 figures in R&D expense.

I'm not sure whether to be optimistic or pessimistic, but the rendeering part of all this is the most exciting to me.

The rendering in Chief has gotten much better since creating their own raytrace engine in X4.
These are nothing very special (obviously) but each one took only about 3 min.

It seems to me good rendering has to be a competitive advantage.

Nice rendering, PD.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


I really love the look of columns like this. I want to build one, but i need to find an appropriate time and place to do one.
Here is a little something i drew up, influenced by a few that i have seen around here.
