miniCHALLENGE#03 - NGA House with Maxwell Render
Time for a new miniCHALLENGE... the third one! And this time it is all about Maxwell Render.
It will run from today, March 17th until April 18th 23:55 GMT.
About the NGA House / Maxwell Render miniCHALLENGE :
In this mini challenge you are being asked to submit 3d exterior visuals of the NGA House using the 3d model provided for you. You can not change the house model but you can add to it and the environment is totally up to you and your creative minds!
How will this miniCHALLENGE run :
as opposed to the much larger in scope Architectural Visualization Challenges going on here like GH HOUSE & HOVER, this one will be contained in a single thread. the first posts will be reserved for administrative and informational purposes, but all else is yours... you can freely post your work in progress or just final images, it's up to you... But I suggest you do post as many WIP's possible and get the help and feedback of fellow forum members.

- The deadline for submitting your final images is April 18th 23:55 GMT
- Criteria for judging are based on composition, modeling, texturing, lighting, concept and mostly final result general impact on the viewer.
- You can't post the work you do here in other forums, but you can link to it - the aim is to keep the discussion in one central place... HERE.

congratulations for the great new mini challenge.
One little thing. The Max File is version 2010 (not openable to older versions)
At importing the 3ds there is a message that no object is found.
Maybe you can look for the 3ds.
that's really nice house to play with. Looking forward for the buzz around and getting in!
noo problem, i will use the fbx or obj.
Maybe I was the only one, but I had a tricky time getting this into SketchUp. I ended up getting a nice clean model in there eventually so I thought I'd share it here and save others the trouble. I did take out the ground plane and tree however, fyi. Ronen, feel free to add this .skp file to your download options above if you wish.
File is 1.7mb
