Custom Prop: MacBook Pro

For various reasons, I wasn’t happy with the laptop and smart phone models I already had, so I thought it would be a fun “learning challenge” to try making my own. I created the 3D models and UV maps in Cheetah3D and put the textures together in Photoshop.

After I finished working on the MacBook, I realized that the way I beveled the corners of the base is slightly different from what I did for the lid, but you can’t really see the difference unless the lid is closed all the way. Like I said, “learning challenge”!

Here are both models, lit and rendered in Poser Pro’s Firefly render engine:
