ABOUT BLADE RENDER
What do we do?
We use your 3D models to create photographic, artistic images to your specification. We can work with most 3D file types. We can also create a 3D model for you if you don't already have one.
How long does it take?
Typically, a regular watch will take up to 3 days to produce images for. We advise allowing one week to include changes and alterations.
How much does it cost?
The price depends entirely on the complexity of the model. You can send an image of the watch or the 3D model to us (under confidentiality agreement) by email for an accurate quote. The more time spent on the image, the more refined it will look.
How are the images supplied?
Images are delivered at 10,000 x 6,000 pixels at 600 dpi unless specified otherwise. They can be delivered in CMYK or RGB (RGB by default) and they can be delivered as JPEG, PNG (transparent background) or fully-layered TIFF.
What Software is used?
3D Modelling work is done using Solidworks and ZBrush. Solidworks is the industry standard for Industrial Design & Engineering 3D work and Zbrush is a specialist program for creating organic forms such as leather. Rendering work is done in Keyshot, which is the Industry leader for product rendering. The lighting is created using HDR Lightstudio; another very powerful piece of specialist software.
