I had an idea of two lamps meeting, interlocking into each other, creating their common intimate space. When standing alone the lamp would give a directional light with a sharper light image. When locked together by each of their’s soft, extendable plastic shades, the light would be twice as strong but dimmed.
Since I am a beginner at 3D-modelling it took a really long time for me to figure out how to build the base of the lamps. The shape had to lock into itself once duplicated, like two pieces in a puzzle.
I find rendering in Keyshot9 difficult too. To me, the software is not intuitive and so it takes a lot of time to understand how to do simple things, like adding texture to a material.
One year later I went back into Rhino, adjusted and cleaned up the 3D-model. While doing this I noticed how I had improved, I have expanded my skillset in Rhino during the past year and I could see that I had build parts of the lamps in ways I would not do today. 🙂
I have spent the last two weeks working in Keyshot and Rhino on those lamps every single day. This is how good it gets. I know I have a lot to learn when it comes to both 3D-modeling and rendering, and building those skills takes time. I might get back to them in a year when I have put more time into improving my skill set. We’ll see. 🙂
