<p>RENDERING USING AUTODESK INVENTOR STUDIOBy Neha Gidwani The object of this tutorial is to make lifelike renderings using Autodesk Inventor Studio.</p> <p>Rendering of a Toast RackIn this tutorial we will be rendering a Toast Rack. The rendered image is shown below.</p> <p>Figure 1</p> <p>Tools used in Inventor Studio for rendering:Each surface style corresponds to an Autodesk Inventor color style in which basic material properties are duplicated from Autodesk Inventor, but additional properties are available in Autodesk Inventor Studio.</p> <p>A lighting style consists of one or more discrete light objects, each with its own set of properties, which is used to change the lighting effects in a part or assembly. This tool can be used to enhance the display of colors of the object (part/assembly) to make it appear more realistic.</p> <p>A scene style consists of background geometry, colors, or images that appear during rendering.</p> <p>A camera can be defined using this tool to focus on a particular aspect of the object (part/assembly).</p> <p>This tool is used to render the image using the surface, lighting, and scene styles defined.</p> <p>This tool is used to view the last rendered image.</p> <p>Procedure:1.
