I made a render for fun today


#1

I’ve been having a lot of fun with MSPhysics lately and felt like making something. This room is what I came up with. This was made in a few hours - a half day. I used the 3D Warehouse for the computer, pencil, and toast. I modeled everything else.

I made some gummy bears today.

I thought up a skate park obstacle today. It’s a 1’-3" tall by 30’ long galvanized metal guardrail on a bridge. The downhill part is 6’ long with a mellow 2 in 12 slope. It’s designed for intermediate skateboarders & above and should provide hours of fun. It was important to me to add in nature, shade, and stained concrete accents to make the park a pleasant environment to skate in. My end goal is to complete the skate park, but I’m not sure when I’ll finish it. Anyways, I figured I’d share a render.

I 3D modeled this skateboarding full pipe filled with shiny spheres. There’re 20.1 million polygons, so it’s getting pretty laggy. But it ended up working out.

Thank you!

My first rendering animation. It took like 18 minutes to render, otherwise I would’ve made it longer.


#13

Maybe I missed this, but which rendering software was used?


#14

I use Twilight Render V2 (the free hobby version). Animations are really easy with that program. You just make a couple scenes in SketchUp, then go to “Extensions -> Twilight Render V2 -> Animation editor”, adjust some settings, and then wait forevverrrr for it to render. In my opinion, the last step is the hardest.

This project reminds me of a story about a house in flying saucer format. I searched YouTube now and just found it.

Set the subtitles from “portuguese” to “english” in the video settings

Wow! That looks so similar to my design. The automated staircase was a nice touch. I liked the sliding windows too. Cool video!

The “Futuro” fiberglass house was designed by a Matti Suuronen and “mass-produced” (less than a hundred were made) in Finland in the years around 1970, before the first oil crisis.

If you put this house on a lake, can you see the fish from that window facing down?:grin:

Oddly enough, one of these ended up in my home state of Kentucky.

I understand that the Futuro has become a sort of collector’s item. The photo I posted is from an art museum near Helsinki, Finland.
