If you use my models, Send me a render! :)


Born and raised in Utah, USA, I've spent most of my life taking things apart and putting them back together. Imagine my chagrin when i got my first car! So many pieces..... :) Ever since, I've had a passion for vehicles of any type and own several that I am in the process of restoring/heavily modifying. The first time I got my hands on a CAD program and discovered how easily i could put ideas on paper, I was hooked. I'm very intrigued by computer graphics and renderings and consider myself to have a pretty good eye for composition. I've used SolidWorks for three years now and very much enjoy the real life design of industrial machines, but I've always fancied the 3D modeling and rendering side of things. I've tried MODO and 3DS Max, Keyshot and Bunkspeed, but ever since my trial versions ran out I'm left with the somewhat limited rendering capabilities of Solidworks.
