This is great! I’m a sucker for a good 3D model!

I have to say the heat effect on the diffuser is brilliant!

Ok, you've now officially became my hero.

That oil cooler looks crazy time consuming to reproduce.

Dang....

Thanks gents! I'm debating what I want to do about the transmission. I found the model for this one online and originally used it as a placeholder. It's not really a model I can revise, as it is one imported "blob" without editable features. But it's also not quite up to the standards that everything else is at.... unfortunately for me to get a trans model to that point it would take starting from scratch.

Certainly something I *could* do, but the drive to do it isn't the same as when I was creating the engine.

That's one of the reasons I have been holding off on creating too many art prints. It's just weird to see the engine so well done and the trans just kinda blah.

That said, there are a few prints available on my page at www.society6.com/autoillustrated for those that want to give it a look.

As always, thank you for the support! The real build is stalled out while I save funds to get the casework done.

Just built a new computer for rendering, I thought I would expand a bit on my previous response to this. the new build renders an image in 1/3 the time that the old computer did it.

-processor is the 2nd gen Ryzen 7 2700 (8 core)
-32gb of RAM, though 16 would have probably been fine
-GIGABYTE Radeon RX 550 2gb graphics card
-boots Windows 10 from a Samsung SSD, storage is a 1T WD mechanical hard drive


(for reference, the old setup was running an Intel Core i7-4810, 16G of RAM, not even sure what GPU)

Keyshot is very processor dependent, so the more cores the better. Other software may rely more on a graphics card. And any system benefits from a lot of RAM.

My advice is to research what your software likes and build to that. Building your own PC is not only fun and extremely rewarding, but it's also far cheaper than buying a spec'd out box from a retailer. Also, it's really very easy.

Here's the new rig





I've been meaning to get back to this model and render out some posters, but I've been swamped.

Thanks for the feedback. If folks only knew how much effort this is.....

Apologies for not being engine related, but wanted to show another little project I'm working on.

I figured it was about time I get a new transmission modeled. As stated previously, the one shown before was just a place holder. It was a model I found online that was fairly accurate. This new one was scratch built, but there aren't any interior details. This is a 901 gearbox that would have been in 911's up to early 1969.









This one was made using almost entirely reference photos, so for anyone reading along and wanting a 3D model to help you with some project, this isn't it. Some aspects might be very close, others are literally just "eye-balled". Good for making pretty pictures but that's about it.

Glen, the sticker on the coil BRACKET did not appear until the SC. The sticker on the COIL is OK.

I am really enjoying this thread, thanks for sharing this amazing work with us.
