Stack of Crystal Grids
For Sacred Creation I rendered one of their best selling Crystal Grids. With a Crystal Grid you can bend the energies of the Universe to a specific goal. Usually with the help of crystals. The product is laser cut and engraved.
For this render I modeled a very basic cylinder (with just 6 sides) in Blender. Then I UV unwrapped it and exported the UV layout so I could create the necessary textures in Affinity Photo.
I thought having a simple roughness on the lasered pattern would be enough for it to make it clearly visible, turns out I was wrong. After several trials I ended up with a blend material (meaning two materials combined), one material for the transparent acrylic and one white plastic material for the lasered pattern.
The result looks quite convincing!
