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
*As inventory allows
I created my first design for Engineers ring (golden ring - shaped computer mouse).

This album I have prepared for all our other new ideas in the challenge "Precious gems and valuable metals"
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.
Nice work David - it is look realistic
Do not forget add to prepared fotoalbum: Gems and precious 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.
