I use Solidworks and PhotoWorks for rendering. The truck is mosty surfaces, but things like the grill and mirrors are solid. I like to use bluprints if possible, but this one was mosty by eye.

 

Here is an immage of the layout i used.

 

Bumpmaps in the walls, gound, marker lamps and headlights.

 

I used an environment map in the background, really makes the reflections snap.

 

The wheels use the new satin finish.

 

The flames are an EXTREMELY high res decal. If it was any bigger id run out of resources :).

 

There are NO lights in this scene, only the environment map with indirect illunination.

 

 

 

 

BTW nice tutorial Parel! :)

WOW! Thanks for all the comments!! It looks to me like the SolidWorks community is starved for information!! Due the the overwhelming requests for files, here is a link to download the models. PLEASE keep in mind that these models are for educational purposes only :). If would like to use my models for any publication besides this site, please PM me.

 

Here are the links...

EDIT 1/17/07: Thanks to Muggs, the files are now online again. Please use the following links. The files will be avail untill Jan, 2008.

The videos use:

SolidWorks (for the models),

CosmosMotion (for the physics),

Photoworks (textures, shadows, ect.),

Animator (To capture each frame from Cosmos, which photoworks renders, to put into an avi.)

 

The files were created to study the effects of a design change to the a-arms. They were part of a presentation that i did for virtual prototyping in 2003.
