Guest 3D Model: Little Wire

Posted on Monday, July 30th, 2012 in 3D Model by DP

Today we feature Squonk’s 3D model of the Little Wire AVR based multi-tool. As with our models it was designed in SketchUp with the eagleUp plugin, and rendered in Kerkyrhea. You can download the model from Squonk’s 3D warehouse collection.

Via the forum.

    Very cool! I wonder how long it took to render

    • Squonk says:

      This 800×600 picture took 15 minutes to render on my modest 4-yea-old Dual Core Centrino laptop!

      What took me time is to create the model for the glass-coated Zener diode with this realistic “milky” effect.

        Snap, yeah I’d immagine that would be rough making the zener diodes look realistic, not to mention the LED. Turned out great, though!

        Ya know, I think it’s great that people like you have time to create nice-looking, realistic models. (not that I’ve used 3D rendering yet, but it’s tempting)
