Cat 3512C GenFlex from Pon Power - Ship Engine
« on: April 21, 2015, 05:01:50 am »
Hi folks,

A former colleague contacted me  the other day, and he requested some renders in KeyShot for their new ship engine: Cat 3512C GenFlex from Pon Power. This highly detailed model was a joy to work with. I've attached some of the results. Hope you guys like it. C&C are quite welcome.

Model Courtesy of Pon Power.

Absolutely stunning!  And an amazing model!  If you can start with an exceptional model, the rest is easy.  Well, sort of! Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks, Bill! Appreciate that. And I couldn't agree more. Such detailed great models really makes the rendering work so much easier. Had to do a lot of radius adjustments though, but it worked like a charm in KS.

Thanks Josh, and thank you for sharing!

Awesome renders, the modelling looks exceptional too. Curiosity has the better of this pussy cat, was the model NURBS rendered or Poly-Mesh ?

And my question- what's the poly count?

So much galvanised material ... to the point where I wonder if there shouldn't be more parts sand-casted looking ?
I have no idea haha, unlike my brother in law I am not seeing ship engines too often  :P

Nice renders tho !  :D

I actually planned for it to be a NURBS-render, as  the model was relatively large. However, I found myself short on time during the geometry prep in NX. I suspect that some of the parts were .IGES, which really is very time consuming to prepare. so I just went for a coarse mesh import, using the fillet radius function in KS. Didn't know at that time that this function didn't work together with NURBS rendering (which probably should be obvious). So I ended up with a coarse poly mesh, which turned out to be good enough.

And my question- what's the poly count?

Not completely sure where you can access this information, but if you mean Triangles = 8 100 000. Is that.. much?

Hah, yeah.. I got to admit I kinda went overboard with the galvanised metal. It should probably be less, but I am as oblivious as you on ship engine appearance. I'm doing some rerenders though, as the finished Pon Cat engines have a lot more paint(typically yellow/black theme). Just went with a prototype/concept look.

Thanks though!

These are just stunning! I particularly love the first two shots, and your materials are sublime - regardless of whether they are over galvanised!

Sh!t hot

Yep.  Not bad for this complex a model...  I have one bad boy that's 71,000,000 + polys!

Thanks Ed, I appreciate that! I just generally like the visual feel of that material, which might explain that it was used a tad too much;) The people at Pon Cat certainly liked the results.

Yikes, what kind of model was this? This makes me curious about other models I have lying around. Got a fully equipped fishing vessel somewhere which is pretty heavy. I'll see if I can dig up the images somewhere.

Amazing work!

THanks man! :)

Incredible images.
What material did you use on the tubing? It looks like it could be chrome or clear zinc. I like the hint of yellow on the tubing nut close up.
Could the materials be uploaded to the Cloud, or is that where you got them?

The tubing is actually a basis from polished steel, where I increased the roughness to 0,02 and added a very subtle "polished steel" bump map. This map is quite similar to photoshop clouds, adding a gaussian blur to it. I cannot share the materials unfortunately, since some of the textures are propriatery. The yellow hint you are pointing out is actually a sphere with an area light diffuse material. Glad you noticed that ;)
