    Geno,

    I saw a post directed at us 3D guys a week or two ago and
    I went and downloaded some of the veneer images. Here is
    a sample of what I came up with using those images.

    well you are definately welcome. those look fabuloso. is that an ash burl? anyway they look beautiful, now when are you REALLY going to build them [​IMG]

    PS do you build your own speakers [as in drivers or woofers and tweeters] in 3d or do you find the wireframes online somewhere?

    and i know ive read it before but what programs do you use. i use acad first then render in 3d max. i even noticed you used a reflection map on the spikes [nice touch].


    ps we need a section in htf where we can post pics of these 3d monsters. like a gallery of some sorts.

    well glad you used them, again those look fabulous.

    Geno,

    Nope I am not building these.. This was just a quickie
    model to see how well the veneer images would skin to a
    3d object [​IMG]

    I use Metatools Bryce 3 currently but it's not a modeler.
    You can model with Bryce but it's very difficult to do so.
    My favorite Modeler is Caligari TrueSpace but at the moment
    I don't have it installed (I need to install it though).

    I make all of my drivers from scratch as did Gomer.

    Brett, nice renderings, as usual... but don't you want to BUILD those now!? [​IMG]

    Anthony, yours was great too, I thought it was real until I looked closer at the wall and floor!

    Excellent work gentlemen!
