Hi, I’m a noob to Blender so please forgive my lack of knowledge.
I’m trying to render this model I made (File: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6LZR8E7BbohRnBiSkpDQ0lyNDA) at 1080p, 500 samples. I’m rendering with a GTX 970M, which is a pretty powerful GPU for today’s standards.
When I go to render, Blender estimates that it will take over 40 HOURS to render the image. 40 hours! Letting the render run for 15 minutes, the estimates seemed accurate… Is this normal?? Could anyone test this on their rig to see what you get?
Please tell me if I’m doing anything wrong. I’m coming from a Solidworks background, where it only takes around 5-10 mins to render most models.
