Thats is just awesome, it looks really nice. Like that brushed material, is that the standard one?

PS i havent posted my addon update yet for Blender. I found some issues i want to fix first. Sorry for the big delay. I keep find small issues and keep adding stuff. Than i always test items and sometimes notice earlier added items are broken.

Hello,
For the metal I used a material from the online repository. I think Angle_B_A2_Matte_Brushed_14k_Unplated_White_Gold pretty nice.
For the lighting, I used an HDR image. Here I used one from HDRI IBL Studio.
OK, one or the other will change. But the microphone itself is almost done. I would like to modifi the environment even more. But i'm not shure what.

There is hardly any environment, its just a plane with a wood texture?

That's true. There is no environment. It's just a plate with a wood texture. So not really something to show. I think to take a slightly reflective plane. I also would like to change something on the lighting. But thats the next step. Currently I create a plug with a cable for the microphone.

I still thought to make a holder for it. but have the fear that it deviates from the microphone.

OK. Here the next version of the microphone. It is supplemented only by a plug with a wire. And the background is different now.

Why not something like quick added sketch. I think that would like nice as a product shot. You can decide to use a gradient background or dark one.

PS the parfum is also a nice backdrop. That is "C_Studio_04" Studio IBL from Thea's studio lib, i LOVE this one.

PS there is a nice trick using Hooks on your curve path. That way you can style the cable super easy

great work!

But any sound technician would cringe seeing a microphone like that just laying around ;-)

@ Werthen: You're right. That's why I have tears in my eyes when I see it lying. I tried to construct a microphone holder, but it did not look as intended. I will first take the "Siemens air hook (Siemens Lufthaken)" :lol: .

@ Rombout: I like the idea. Will try to implement in the next days.

This is one great model to see! Great job.

I must have missed it somewhere, but what modelling soft as used to create the model?
SketchUp & Thea Render are my tools
What else is there to know? :-)
