21004 Guggenheim Museum
LEGO has launched a new Architecture line and I have to note that they are pretty impressive. So impressive, that I spent some time on vacation modeling the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in POV-ray. 21004 Guggenheim Museum by Steven Reid, on Flickr This model is a great example of the effort the LEGO…

Structure Synth Fun
Ran across some interesting images built using Structure Synth and rendered in POV-Ray. Thought it’d be cool to try some myself. I was playing some of the demo scenes, exporting them to POV-Ray for a high quality render. The image looked like hair and made me think LEGO minifig…

Cow
This is a “sort-of” recreation of the original cow image with the “Moo!” bubble. Unlike the original, this is a true brick cow and I’ve tried to make it more “realistic” then the original “flat” and shiny version. I had added the bubble with Paint Shop Pro on the first version…

LEGO 7804 Lizard
Ran across this really interesting LEGO set and I just “had” to render it. I needed to model a few parts I didn’t have in my library. I also threw it into the same background I used on one of my Fire Truck renders. I might change the scene a bit to better show the texture on the front slope…

602 Fire Truck and Radiosity
I ran across this wonderful little macro by Jaime Vives Piquere to do Pseudo-HDRI lighting. I ran the macro with both POV-Ray 3.6 and 3.7 beta 31. I actually liked the 3.7 better. However, the image map I used is a bit lower resolution then I would like causing the pixilation in the background. I’m …

More Lorenz Attractor Fun
I was looking over my Lorenz Attractor images and wondered how the spiral would look close-up. So, I created another version looking down on the spiral with the tendrils coming up from the it…

Getting a Little deviantART
I’ve been a lurker on deviantART for awhile now and decided to take the plunge and upload some of my ray traced images there. Since I tend to use the same alias at all my sites, you can now catch SafePit on deviantART…

Playing With The Lorenz Attractor
I was searching for some pov-ray liquid routines and ran into an interesting article on The Lorenz Attractor In 3D. The Lorenz Attractor is an interesting equation and surprisingly beautiful. Since there was a sample pov-ray macro on the site, I thought it would be fun to generate some pictures…

Well, it’s been over a year since I last played around with my Lego ray tracing and even longer since the last time I traced a new model. Well, ’tis the season to build new models! I did some searching around and found a model from 1969: 318 Windmill. Yes, it isn’t a large model…
