UPDATE: Happy New Year everyone! The TOP ring is the photo. Of the 59 submissions, 37 correctly chose the real ring. I selected a winner at random and am waiting for a reply. Here’s a write up about the process of taking the photo and matching render.
Happy holidays! We’re counting down to 2015 and we wanted to announce that we’ll be giving away this 3D printed ring in the new year. The ring was 3D printed in Shapeways’ Polished Silver material and will go to one winner who can correctly identify which of the shown rings is an actual photo (the other is a computer render). Share and comment on this post or on any of our social media posts about it or simply fill out our contact form (be sure to mention this post) to enter to win. Indicate which one is a photograph by saying the top ring or bottom ring. We’ll be taking answers until December 31, 2014 at 11:59PM. We’ll draw a winner at random from all the correct answers on New Year’s day.
The photo was taken in my office.
The computer render was created using Blender:
Stay tuned for more about the render after the winner has been announced!
