CSPC 3710

Ray Tracing Project

By: Pinder Mangat




For this project I decided to render a 3D model of the Calgary Tower using 3D Studio Max 7. To construct the tower I used a tube for the shaft of the tower, as well as a turus to connect the shaft to the main cylinder which was topped with a disc. The difficulties that I came across while constructing the tower were the camera angles and the lighting, they were hard to set to the right settings and to place in the right spots. The way I chose to set up the camera made making the details at the top very difficult. I tried to add windows and other such details but finally had to remove them.
