After Hours in the Virtual Lab

While working on a visualization for a new lab space, out of curiosity, I decided to render the scene after dark, and was quite surprised by the results.

The dramatic light provided almost entirely by a single omni-directional shadow-casting light somehow makes the scene look more real than it does with the lights on. It draws your attention to the main subject in a subtle, but interesting way.

Another PGM Rendering

Most of you have noticed that I haven’t been posting a lot lately. The main reason for this is that I am so busy at work. When I’m not tending to IT tasks, I use every spare cycle rendering one thing or another. I really love doing this work, but it consumes a lot of time I might otherwise spend blogging. Sorry!

This latest rendering of the Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine will be used in a very cool brochure. The image will stretch from the front to the back of an 11 x 17″ brochure. Woo-hoo!

Rendered with the fabulous Thea Render.

Pratt & Whitney Engine

Another Thea Render from a freely downloaded SketchUp model. Wow!

Thea Render

I’ve been playing around with what I consider to be a very fine renderer. Thea Render produces images with striking realism. It runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. It supports slave rendering nodes. Slaves can be configured to cooperatively render a single image. This very cool feature yields excellent rendering speeds. I hope to have more 3D stuff to post soon!
