3D Industrial Machine Visualizations

We partner with our friends at McLanahan to create 3D renders and animations of their high-grade industrial machinery. In order to visualize how these enormous machines work, we prep very hefty CAD files, create materials and textures, setup the CGI lighting, animate virtual camera and the product elements, generate liquid simulations, and a lot of rendering.

Finally, we composite all the layered passes together. Before we begin working with a model, we collaborate on a detailed animation outline script and schedule several video calls with engineers while we screen share imported CAD files. This way we learn how the product works and what the individual elements are that the script calls out.

Elevated High-Rate Thickener

Elevated High-Rate Thickener
3D Visualization

McLanahan's Elevated High-Rate Thickener might be one of the more intensive 3D visualizations. Working with this model required separating the engineer's file into smaller models and a week prepping these models for materials and animation. Reducing and cleaning up the enormous amount of polys was needed since where simulating mud and water with it. We make it look easy, however, these machines are very complex and require months of planning and collaborating with engineers. Particular attention of detail is given with water simulation and flocculants.

In order to visualize how these enormous industrial machines work - we prep very hefty CAD files, create materials and textures, setup the CGI lighting, animate the camera and product elements, produce liquid simulations, and a lot of rendering. Finally, we composite all the layered passes together. Before we begin working with a model, we collaborate on a detailed animation outline script and schedule several video calls with engineers while we screen share imported CAD files - this way we learn how the product works and what the individual elements are the script calls out. We make it look easy, however, these machines are complex and require months of planning and collaborating with the engineers. Particular attention to detail is giving with mud and water simulations when it's the primary function of the machine itself.

UltraDRY

UltraDRY
3D Visualization

The UltraDRY is Deep Sky's 8th 3D visualization video for McLanahan. Working with hefty CAD files, we prep models, texture, light, animate, simulate, render, and composite how these enormous industrial machines work. We make it look easy, however, these machines are very complex and require months of planning and collaborating with the engineers. Particular attention to detail is giving with mud and water simulations.
