Another AMAZING contest and we are all thoroughly impressed with the submissions from both the KeyShot and GrabCAD community. This was a very challenging contest to judge. There a a lot of great entries that meet the criteria of creativity, realism and composition. In the end, we had to narrow it down to one winner for best rendering, one for best animation and one for best student entry.
Along with the 3D renderings and animations created, we also have a taste of some brilliant and very intricate engine models--links below. Once again, we would like to congratulate everyone for an amazing job! Links to the forum post have been added so you can see all of the renderings submitted by the winners and congratulate them as well. Without further ado, I present, the winners of the KeyShot Engine Rendering contest!
Rodrigo Soria - Cirrus 22 Engine
Model: Rodrigo Soria
Rodrigo Soria demonstrated his skill for creating an amazing model and then creating incredible compositions using the rich capabilities of KeyShot. The materials and lighting in each shot submitted displayed a level of attention that comes together to create an absolutely stunning image.
Tim Purdy - 9 cylinder radial engine animation
Model: Jan Elg
Tim Purdy took a very detailed, highly intricate model created by Jan Elg and created a wonderful animation of how the model functions and assembles. This is a perfect example of KeyShot animation capabilities and shows Tim's thought process into putting together the steps for an effective presentation of the model.
Best student entry
