I thought I would post this as it’s kind of a unique project for me. I tend to do more graphic design oriented projects.
A Spiral Refrigerator unit down to it’s bolts and fasteners rendered in Brazil at high res. It’s really the only rendering solution I would attempt this sort of thing with. VRay may very well handle the project just fine but I am not as familiar with it’s ins and outs. My graphics cards don’t have sufficient ram to attempt Arion as the project file was 1.4 gigs.
Brazil would continuously crash on me, at higher res’ until I turned down the threads a little. Seems ‘auto’ would run the processor at 100%, something Brazil did not like at all at upped res. Once down to 5-6 threads everything was fine and I could finish the project. I was running at about 75% CPU power.
All in all the project turned out quite well.
