Solid Edge Rendering Contest Starts NOW!

By MLombard

This has been in the works for a while, and I’m excited that it’s finally here. A monthly Solid Edge/Keyshot Rendering Contest! Download the model, set up your scene and render settings, then submit your images.

Anyway, here’s the deal.

  • Go to the page for the contest.

  • Read the rules.

  • Download the piano model in Parasolid 25.1

  • Open it in Solid Edge

  • Add your own stuff, backgrounds, lighting, props, etc.

  • Render something amazing in KeyShot

  • Submit your rendering on the Entries tab

  • On May 18 we’ll vote

  • On May 25, you Win! Some small prizes will be involved, but what you win is mostly notoriety and bragging rights.

  • In June we do it again with a new model.

A key component of this will be dicussing the renderings and models. Share cool stuff with other users. Of course, have fun.

My image below is just a screen capture, so everything everyone else submits is going to be nicer than this.
