    Construction renders

    Hi there,

    I've made a construction model, and tried to render it out, so you can see some of the construction element of the building.
    I think it is somewhat over the top, for i have half cut open the building with an non visible geometry.
    A lot is going on in the image, so i've wonder if it is not to mutch.
    The original image was 43mb, so i've compressed the image to be able to upload it.
    The rendertime for this image was about a day, as i really wanted to be able to zoom in at a detail level.
    I also used 3D rebar. This was my first project that i put in 100% 3D rebar for my shedules.
    This was really fun to do, but a little more time consuming then when you only use 3D rebar there to make your details.

    Bross.

    Hey! These are pretty neat! One suggestion that would probably cut your rendering time down is changing the chrome looking material of your steel members. Calculating all those reflections will destroy render times. Plus, I highly doubt all of your tube steel will be chrome plated in reality

    Thanks for the reply,

    I agree on the chrome look. I've chosen this material because for me it would give you the best impression of a steel material.
    Otherwise poaple would ask me "what materials are those beams or column's. But is will indeed be of a other steel material than chrome in most of the chases.

    Thanks. :-)

    How's your computer running with all that modeled rebar? Know someone that did a window surround and it about killed his computer performance. (Window was only 5' wide and 9' tall...)

    I've got a couple entire buildings of rebar. (Not a lot, but a couple). They're heavy, but not completely wrecked. Still workable. (Shrug)

    The OOTB steel material works well enough IMO.

    I actually use a Plastic material, with a light gray color. I find all of the OOTB metal materials drastically slow down rendering, because of the MINOR reflectivity they have.

    This was quite a few years ago...probably working a lot better now that most machines have more than 8gb of ram now.

    You said you wonder if it's too much. Can I ask why you did them? They can't build by them (obviously). So, why spend the time to do them unless it was just for the fun of it. They do look cool, though.

    I think the exploded views would look better instead of trying to cut-a-way different locations..
