Precious gems and valuable metals

Hello,

The challenge is to render your designs in such a way that makes all the precious gems and valuable metals look believable, sparkling, and shiny.

So here it is, $25 Amazon gift card to each member that submits their very own rendering of a precious gem or valuable metal. Think of diamonds, ruby's, silver coins, gold rings etc

Some guidelines:

  • Each member can submit a max of 3 gems or metals or combination of both. *Potential to earn $75 in Amazon gift cards. Feel free to upload as many as you want however.
  • Submissions must be unique and original.
  • Submissions must originate from a Creo Elements/Pro file. Files can be attached as a reply to this thread.
  • Use the Tag "gems_metals" (without quotes) when creating your photo album.

Submit your gems and metals >>

Good luck!

-Dan

*As inventory allows

Dan,

Thanks for the topic. Just for fun. Got me thinking about combining an old hobby interest in the exquisitely elegant geometry of crystallography with the highly capable modeling engine we all share. The gems you have asked for have cool cut facet geometry; natural crystals gives us facets determined by internal geometry and a so-called unit cell. Here's a quick-and-dirty approximation of one of the many naturally occuring forms of quartz.

P.S. NOT meant to meet your challenge of "believable, sparkling, and shiny."

Re: Precious gems and valuable metals

Re: Precious gems and valuable metals

Hi all, ok here is my first modeled and rendered concept in Pro/E Wildfire 5.0. There is not any retouching with third party programs.
