Few pictures from Scene in mental ray

I thought that one single picture of mental ray from previous posts wasn’t enough, so I added in few more pictures. (Each pictures takes at least 5 – 7 minutes on small resolution)

Here is the first picture of tower case behind the chair; except it’s been shaded in shadow: (as well as keyboard)

Next is a picture of what my wall looks like:

Last picture is  a monitor screen with its monitor stand.

Creating in Maya, encounter error.

Things are going well with modelling objects in scenery, however I encounter errors which I can not fixed.

From what I read on help forum (autodesk), it is to do with version error. Which I can not do anything about it, it seems the education version in college may be the cause of creating the error to my work.

Which I only have one option left, redo the ENTIRE work from scratch…

So I thought, restarted maya once more, but click on “Ignore version” and fixed the problem.

This thread save me big time solving the problem:

Render View Problem

I thank tristanb3d for the solution.

As for now, here is my work so far:

 

The layout looks exact position from the scene view I have drawn, what it really needs are texturing & lightning.

But I think what it really needs is tone lightning and I need to worry about what to do with glass attaching to the metal floor.

Next is in mental ray, I added glow intensity to see how it goes, so far, its going great.

I also added in a carpet, it going to be turned as a small fluffy carpet; the base colour is already shown on these two pictures.

Tower Case idea

Below is a picture of my tower case ideas, server case wouldn’t be a good idea as I didn’t plan of making my pc host as a server.

Tower case:

First idea – There wasn’t a lot of futuristic design on this idea as I was wondering if I should keep it as rectangle case or square case.

I decided on making it as square case; which should be two times smaller than regular, modern tower case.

Second idea – A square case, have ports for external devices to plug in like all tower cases has while the power button is almost t the centre of the front.

Third idea – Very similar to second idea; except two fans are added to the case for cooling purposes. But the case looks like a animal face.

Fourth idea – A different idea from second and third idea with similar concept. This time, four Hard Drives are attached on top of the square case, on the front of the case, the power button is at the side that looks like original keyhole with ports at the side of it. On its left side, there are two cooling fans with expanded metal grid above it, allowing more air to inhale and exhale.

The fourth idea is my ideal tower case for my scene object.

Server Case / Tower Case

Source images from website as reference for my project:

Server Case & Tower Case:

This image is futuristic metallic server case.

Next image is futuristic design of Tower case; it stands out to me the most.

Next one is a giant look alike cooling fan case.

Third image has a interesting design that does look like futuristic.

Another image that has futuristic design on the case.

Different futuristic design for Tower case.

The last image seems to be far better than the others I have found above, its called Darwin Machine Hammerhead HMR989.
