As a final improvement to a scene in progress, I removed a free downloaded 3D park bench model, and replaced it with one of my own design.
This adds a nice touch to the rose theme I’ve been weaving throughout the image. I am making several versions of this virtual park bench available for free on my free 3D models page, a Bryce OBJ file, a Vue VOB file, and a generic OBJ file that will render anywhere, though you’ll have to provide your own material for the OBJ. Feel free to see what it looks like in shiny chrome or pitted kryptonite if you’re so inclined.
Since this model was designed for inclusion in a busy scene where I am working to minimize memory use, it is designed to be easy on your computer’s memory, using a minimum of vertices without losing detail, using simple procedural wood grain textures for Bryce and Vue, and staying away from memory eating bitmap textures.
