Animation of a Lego Car Design

A turntable animation of a Lego car. Best watched at 720p

My friend designed it in his industrial design course [in Solidworks], and gave me the model to render(I like rendering).

Sadly the only format he could export that would import into Blender was .stl (Why doesn’t it have Obj by default?) so there were no materials at all… I had to manually assign them to the faces :stuck_out_tongue: Then I got to setup the lighting and select hopefully good materials.

Rendered with LuxRender at 3mins/frame on a 7970 + i5 750, took 12 hours. Enjoy :slight_smile:
