My made-from-scratch-in-CA La Cornue 1908 Range

A while ago I reduced the poly count, though still heavy is still a beautiful piece.

If you would like the all stainless version just material grab the top and paint the white with it-stunning

If you want the black version, just material grab the burner tops and paint the white with it.

OK, should be some good items here- straight from my own living room to yours, the CB2 Remy couch modeled by yours truly in CA(dimensions on the website don't seem correct so this is my interpretation)

The West Elm Terrace Coffee table

Some entourage/ picture frame, table top items, books

A cable railing with a bit more detail-made for California where the cables can't deflect so far as to allow a 4" ball to poke through.

Just to note, no bottom rail, bottom rail spaced 2-7/8" from decking- posts set to 4.53" railing height at 42" This will make it so that the studs on the posts align with the cables.

Thank you, I use that scene for testing tile- love it

and yes been waiting patiently. We were hoping the beta thread could be moved but the public beta has its own program versioning so I figured I should redo it.

A couple of fireplace goodies. One is a mantle assembly that I had previously uploaded in X10, this one stretches around your firebox and maintains its scaling quite well:

 

1755057297_TRACKLIGHT.thumb.jpg.d7938c0533dc65c8cad50c17c1b37648.jpg

The other, a simple distressed and polished wood mantle that I'm sure may be used for things other than just mantles. I setup the stretch planes around the notches in case you'd like to make a thick shelf:

A set of stretchable picture frames. Grab an image and load it up as a material- remember to turn roughness all the way down in your material's properties tab for a realistic glass effect. Paint it over the image in the picture frame.

A starter pack to create templates for kitchen PBR

** each of these textures can utilize the "blend with material tool" to create a ton of additional materials**

 

This includes the following library items:

  • My recessed LED 6" cans specifically made to create more realistic light
  • A re-worked version of my oak plank floor. (blend with dark brown for a great looking Dark Oak floor)
  • A wall gyp bd and ceiling gyp bd specifically made to maintain shadows at the wall-to-ceiling transition...this will be subtle yet have a large impact on the scene. Remember to blend with your wall color.(this texture is size restricted to 10' max height)
  • A white and a brown countertop material with special reflection maps
  • White subway tile with grey grout- also blends with with most colors
  • A glass material specifically made for round glass like bar-ware
  • Appliance Nickel/Stainless Material
  • A cabinet wood material that blends extremely well with other colors

These materials were created from this video, a catchall video showing my process for creating some of these materials

Rene - Your efforts in this endeavor are greatly appreciated. Excellent textures, additional models and very informative instructional support vids.

 

Just a thought as I was watching your latest vid(s). As they cover an extensive array of techniques within each just wondering if the vids should be shorter single subject focused. Say something like PBR & Glass, PBR & Spot Lights, PBR & Point Lights, PBR & Reflections, etc. If a user is struggling with a particular item then they could just jump directly to the applicable instructional vid. Also, as additional techniques evolve it would be much easier to update a shorter specific vid to reflect this.

 

Many Thanks,

Graham

That was about the most ADD-riddled Video I've ever made, HAHA!

...thanks Graham I appreciate it.

After reviewing the vid I'm considering deleting it;  I used SO many incorrect terms!!

It will stay for now until I can put some short ones together as you suggested.

      I've been working in Chief Architect x12 and just upgraded to x13. I hoped that the upgrade would fix this problem I working on.
       
      All of the walls are meant to be this warm wood tone. In pbr mode, the sloped ceilings are practically glowing and washed out. Some of the walls also have this super washed out brightness to them and occassionally I get a really grey wall as seen in the bedroom. In x12, that grey wall was showing as solid black. I can confirm that the wood on the walls and ceiling are all the same materials with the same properties. In the bedroom, all the lights are off while the living space lights are on, without it affecting the brightness. I've adjusted many of the lighting settings but everything else in the model is correct. Any ideas on how to fix this?

      Does anyone have a

      What determines which CAD blocks get shown on this list, under "2D Block" in the Symbol Specification window? Or, more to the point, can I affect which CAD blocks get included in that list? I have a symbol in my User Catalog that I'd like to replace this fixture's assigned symbol with, but it doesn't seem to have made the list. It's hard for me to intuit what criteria this seemingly-arbitrary collection of CAD blocks all meet that make them distinct from all the CAD blocks (like the one I want to use) that are excluded from the list.

      I have changed nothing in any of my settings since I worked on this plan this morning.  Now, when I go to my user library and the lighting I have saved there.  I have red outlines on the majority of them and I have no idea why.  Has anyone experience this?

      I am doing an ADA master bathroom and have looked in vain in the Chief and manufacturers libraries and have not found a pivoting wall mirror symbol.  It does not matter the shape.  I could swear that there was one.  If anyone knows where one might be hidden, I would appreciate help with this.  Using X-13 for interiors.
       
      Thank you.
