Here’s a quick render in progress. I am not aiming for photo realism or even scaled to size, but something presentable. This is a “Design-Build” blue print for a small construction job, meaning that there are no actual specs for the piping. In other words “connect the pipe between the equipment”. This is not an uncommon practice for some of those last minute side jobs.
This is an actual piping project, where stainless steel piping will be installed. Somebody from the job-site came up with a crappy pencil-drawing on a piece of paper, so I decided to make it my weekend project.
I have seen many AutoCad prints for job-sites, but none that have the quality of Blender. AutoCad’s purpose is to have accurate drawings and blue prints for construction, not to paint a pretty picture.
Anyhow, when it is finished, it will be very clear on what is needed to fabricate the piping. When I print it on paper, I’ll leave eatra space to allow for jotting down bits of information for pipe sizes and take-offs, gasket counts, bolt counts, etc…
