I designed this in Mechanical Desktop and rendered it in 3D Studio Max.....

It's only a start... I am going to do the whole machine, when i can.

Very nice mechanics and render ! what render engine did you use ?

06-17-05, 05:10 PM
I used 3d Studio 7 with a skylight and light tracer for rendering.

Cool, good render, realistic materials and ilumination. I see a little problem in your mechanics door, the part of the security lock has few faces, maybe should be a round shape, is not normal this type of security lock.

salu2 and good work

Can you show us a wire?

It?difficult to modelling with mechanical desktop?

Cool image.

MY RESPECTS if it is modeled in mechanical desktop, that is the worst software i have ever used to model ( i understand it is easier to make the blueprints and get it ready for production) i prefer Catia or Unigrafics, and when it comes to render models imported from mechanical doesn?t let you map easily the surfaces. and if you try to add fillets to the borders as frun2 said about the security lock.

Great job!

I actually model using 3d Solids in Mechanical desktop and then export it so i can import it into 3ds..

It's kinda funny. modeling in autocad is 2nd nature to me, i couldnt imagine using anything else, i've been using it for 12-13 years now. Personally it would take me forever to model that in 3ds.

If i want i can convert to smooth surfaces before i get it into 3ds also.
