Fun with Texture
Having fun in Solidworks
About this creation
Having some fun with textures, seeing how lego might look if it was not plastic.

The Rails and Steps are Oak Wood, the verticals are Chrome and the base is Granite.

Cant wait to render a castle :)

Quoting Stewart Ramsey this is awesome!! i had to look for this because i hadnt thought about until now for whatever reason but you mentioned solid works and i was just wondering what that was because i dont think the wood grain is a natural tile pattern so does solid works allowyou to make custom pieces if so then it sounds amazing but i would just like to know how to find and use it, thanks!
Solid Works is a 3D CAD program, it costs around 18k NZD, not sure how much it costs anywhere else. Its a great tool if you have the time to program each and every brick into it :) I only have around 200 pieces done, although they are all available in every LEGO colour. Cheers.

In average, how much would that program cost me? Looks interesting, and I've worked with other CAD programs in the past, and would love to work with this.

Quoting LEGO Lord This truly intrigues me, enough for me to ask: did you actually re-cast the same pieces with real oak rood and chrome metal, or was this digitally altered? If it is indeed real oak wood and metal, you've done a great job, and same for if it is merely a digitally altered image - it does look like genuine wood and metal.
This is completely digital. I use the student edition of Solid Works, which is an industry standard 3D Cad program. Thanks

Quoting Ru Corder Did you say 18k? :o I'd rather buy real lego.
Truth be told - so would I. However as this is a 12month student license it was much much cheaper. The lego castle I am going to build in it is going to cost close to $30'000 and use over 200'000 pieces (i've had it in mind for 2-3 years now). Doing a mock-up of it in solid works will give me a very fair idea for exact ordering quantities, then I can get all the parts over time. It will also allow me to change the design without making any bricks redundant. I've started doing preliminary designs in LDD. LDD isn't powerful enough to handle the fully assembled castle though - and doesnt render anywhere close to SW :)

Quoting Deus Otiosus Oh, that's how you make a turn! I was thinking that...
Your on to it man, I wasn't sure if the reflection was clear enough for people to see its details. The original image I rendered was 3600x2700px. I've also done 7200x5400px images too but they take 4+ hours for the computer to render.

Its a photo-realistic rendering done in Solidworks. Although wood is what Lego was originally made from 50 years ago. I dont think those bricks will exist anymore except in a museum.

Quoting Ru Corder Nice! How much does this program cost?
I'm really not sure you wanna find that out lol. I use the student edition which is only a 12 month licence. I was quoted 18k for the full licence...
