Renderings

So far in this book, you have worked with wireframe, hidden-line, and shaded viewing modes. Now, you will begin to work with renderings, which are shaded, realistic images of 3D objects. In creating renderings, you can simulate the effects of both natural and artificial lighting, and you can transform surfaces into bricks, tile, and other patterned material, as well as create transparent and reflective surfaces.
