I have used Blender as a help in the process of making my art wall works.
Expecially I want to see how the pattern looks in 3D environment as it is impossible to imagine it otherwise.
Exploring light positioning and scattering effects is essential to do at the same time.
CAD program is useful as it can be used in manufactural purposes as well as bases for 3D -rendering.
2D dxf files were imported and extruded in Blender.
Please, have a look at my website http://www.ilona.rista.net/english_musichall.html
Non-photorealistic look was used with purpose for concept images.
Final result is NC-worked birch and LED light.
