Being a vocation engineer, for me it was always an art.
In this paper I wanted to show the connection of visual and technical performance.
The main objective of this work was the production of textures as close as possible to the real world.
Nice job. What is/does the object being held do in real life ?
It’s a holder for air filter element, what used on fermenters (vessel for growing cells).
At one time i use to make flanges like that (sides and bottom)… noticed your welds too! Full assembly was used in medical too, forget the exact use. Pretty cool to see a model like that on a Blender forum
It’s called Tri-clamp connection.
It’s a standard connection in pharma, food, biotechnology equipment.
