Nice Job. I was 100% going to do this... I rendered out a transparent one, then decided to try something different. Funny how some people think alike.

Had fun lighting the model 40 min.
Renderings, 10 min. (5 min each)
PS to apply filter to Rendering #1 (the light one) 5 min.
PS to crop rendering #2 (the dark one)

Total time spent: 1 hour 45 min.

Breakdown:
- playing around using KS5 looking for ideas = 20 min
- applying metal & emissive material by KS5 = 30 min
- post-process making light trail and background using PS = 15 min

Very simple. Hope u like it!

Hello everyone!

Here is my entry. It is straight from Keyshot.
Time spent is about
30 minutes thinking about what to do, doing materials and scene
20 minutes playing with an anisotropic ground material  ;D
30 minutes rendering so my ground would look a bit smooth

Good amount of variation so far. Nice work all!

Solidworks 50min
Keyshot: Materials and Composition 45min
Keyshot: lighting 5min
Keyshot: render 20min


Spent a while in solidworks breaking out surfaces and adding a LOT of fillets.
My first time really using an IES light in my scene...picks up the fillet work I did in earlier nicely in the front but there just wasn't enough time to deal with other stray highlights, speckles and the blowouts from the environment lighting.

Nice work! Looks good. Not sure if you knew this, or if it would have helped you in this case, but KS has a feature where you can apply fillets so to speak. They don't change the geometry, but it simply moves where an edge catches light I believe. In this case, it may have helped you have more time. Maybe not. Just figured I'd mention it.

Thanks =)
Yup! I know about that feature, I just don't like it very much as it doesn't actually deform the geometry - so if I ended up doing a shot where a filleted surface/edge is located on the outer edge...it would still be sharp and break the illusion. I also did it in the model as I could control the fillet dimensions on different edges and also have some edges (eg, for a mating surface) still sharp.
