Project: Molecule isolation with graphene
Purpose: Vitrotem publications, website, and marketing.
The challenge: The 3D modeling was going to be a challenge in this one. Vitrotem make a machine that isolates microscopic samples for scientific analysis. The sample itself is contained on a 3 mm disc, and the important details of the sample are smaller than the thickness of a hair. We had not used 3D visualization for something so small before and so getting our heads around that was the first complication. Some different types of molecules were modeled and for the graphene layers, we chose a grid size that would not distract from the molecules which were to be the main focus. Lighting and render style played a large part in the final stages and lifted the 3D rendering results to the required quality for the client's purpose. The whole scene was ready to make 3D animation from if the client so wished.
