Visualize Rendering Competition
With computer generated graphics and rendering quality ever improving, how do we know if something is real or a render? The lines can become blurred at best, but how realistic are your renders? We ran a competition to see what your renders look like and what you can achieve with SOLIDWORKS for a chance to win an iPad.
We received over 100 entries with most demonstrating such great CAD design and SOLIDWORKS knowledge that it was very hard to choose a winner. Our technical engineers shortlisted some entries and all employees across the Solid Solutions Group voted for their favourite renders.
1st Place – AJ from Gaudio
Realistic enough to play? Great use of textures and bump maps to give depth. Addition of a lens flare and dust in post-processing makes it look like a real photograph.
25 votes, to quote
our Regional Sales Manager, Elliot Parkin-Webb, “the detail on the SNES
controller is on another level”. Elliot, you are not wrong!
2nd Place – Rod Dixon from
Wood grain within a texture gives realism and this is a brilliant example of true engineering.

it! An old-time regular on our Support Desk, who enjoys rendering WW2 aircraft
during semi-retirement, Rod has really impressed us with his aircraft engine
design. The details and realism is as impressive as Rod’s knowledge of CAD
Currently living in Australia, Rod is so passionate about CAD-ing, he has created his own website to host his projects and form a community of like-minded CAD users. Make sure to check his work and join Rod’s conversation by following his site: https://www.virtualaircraft.com.au/
3rd Place – Martin Jordan
from Klöckner Pentaplast (Linpac Packaging)
Everybody loves Lego! Brilliant composition and use of Bloom upon the lights.
18 votes, Lego is always a crowd pleaser and great use of Bloom.
The Solid Solutions team would
like to thank all participants for sharing their work with us and congratulate
the winners for their fantastic renders!
