1st Keyshot project
« on: March 26, 2011, 09:05:48 pm »
This is something I was working for a young friend and now it has taken on a life of it's own....I mean I want to get it looking great. I am new to rendering with a few months of playing with simlab I have moved to keshot. This was designed in Alibre Design and then I began to create the textures in simlab, I just got keyshot running last night and I have gone over a few webinars on texturing today. The following is what I got so far, Not sure about my damascus steel texture yet but will keep tweeking it.

here is a sample pic....

and each piece is going to look different, This is made from the multiple layers of different steels to get the metal.
