3D Equipment

This is a sample of some of the 3D assets generated for Dish Network’s training department. These detailed assets were all modeled, rendered in Lightwave, using only the actual equipment as a guide. These assets needed to be as photo-realistic and geometrically accurate as possible, since they would be used in training materials.

I always like to have the actual object on hand that I’m re-creating in 3D. It’s the best reference for textures, colors and dimensions. One remote or receiver would typically take me around a day or two to complete from scratch, and I built about 3 dozen models of equipment.
