Sweet stuff. Thanks a bunch for sharing the model.
I love these images.

Way cool stuff... In the first image though, you can see segmentation in the geometry

My favourite is the last one - I love it that when they touch they illuminate

Thanks!

I know. I use SolidWorks for modeling. For the first models, I imported my models directly with highest quality settings (tesselation quality = 1). Even then, spring type models don't get silky smooth meshes. Thomas has pointed out elewhere on this forum that it is a characteristic of the current tesselator.

For the last 2 images, I used the SolidWorks plugin to transport the SolidWorks mesh into KeyShot. The result is a smoother and especially more consistent mesh.
