Gorgeous design. Can’t wait to see the physical sample.
Thank you OLG! I’m going to adjust a few of the detail pieces due to not having enough depth for polishing purposes once cast. Overall though I think it’s coming along nicely. I went ahead and rendered some of the wire frame to see if Freestyle would work.
A sapphire it shall be. The stone is an 8mm round synthetic sapphire. The photos are of the 3D printed model, printed at 20 micron layer thickness using my Solus DLP printer in B9 Emerald casting resin.
Heck of a weekend. I tried a few new tricks on the printer and my renders. Volumetric SSS material to look like B9 Emerald resin and I worked out an idea with printing larger rings.
I decided to have some fun with my renders. All done with the same settings, no post production. Cycles, 1024 samples, Denoise, Filmic Color Management.
Quick animation rendered in Cycles.
A project is never really done is it? Last renders before my materials show up for making the ring a reality.
