first post for me in this forum so some details about my intentions/background:
20 years working as a goldsmith for mid to high-end jewellery in germany.
We use Rhino at work for 3D-print since R3 and for the last couple of years outsourcend renderings if need be.
Now, after the upgrade to R6 my master asked if there may be a quick way to render “not perfect but usable” Pictures for customers.
So i tried out some trail-render engines until my brain noticed a familiar name in Rhinos itself: Cycles.
I used to privately play around with Blender a while back and knew what Cycles is capable of so i gave it a try.
The results where actually way better than i had anticipated with just one detail bugging me:
The missing dispersion (aka fire) for Diamonds.
Thanks to this thread i made my own environments and kept "trial and error"ing.
A few results i’d like to share:
Pure render, no dispersion:
pure render with added dispersion (HDR background):
Shopped with added Picture of a real Diamond from our Workshop in the upper right corner(made with my phone so don’t judge it ) :
Playing around a bit:
I kinda like the results im getting fast and simple without a lot of work(Brasil)
Thanks a lot for the input and happy CADing y’all
