This started out as an exercise to render in several render engines, having spent an afternoon modelling the unit, I decided to give this unit a full Octane Render/Lightwave experience and I'm pleasantly surprised.
Each frame came in at around 45s a frame to render using 1 GTX 680 GPU. I now want 9! Noise is a bit of an issue, but then again I do like a little noise in images, given it being the right sort of noise!!
Updated images and animation.
