In this case the image shows a carved glass spheres conjuntode with reflective properties and transparency.
The fields were generated with the primitive “icosphere” to which was added a modifier “Command” bevelled surfaces allowing.
For the surface we used a value factor of subdivision “3”, so that the triangular faces that comprise not excessive for subsequent rendering.
The modifier is then applied, and after selecting some faces, Extrusions were made small value to generate the relief effect.
The result of the extrusion is an area that appears to be carved. After creating multiple copies, are assigned a material with a high degree of transparency, a small mirror and three colored lights complete the scene.
To select the faces to extrude has opted for a multiple selection based on the similarity of areas. For this, select one face and we will press “Shift G“. A new pop-up menu will offer the possibility to choose the type of similarity we want.
Then extrude the faces of the icosphere, from the menu select
Only fail us apply a material with the desired properties:
