3D GRAPHICS, ANIMATION & FILM


"At the Department of Conservation, I worked with Chris Keenan for over ten years. His firm created films commissioned by DOC that included both historical interpretative pieces and films explaining and promoting DOC ecosystem management. I was repeatedly impressed with Chrisís ability to bring together all the components of the films including animation, film footage, sound, still images and script. He is a team player who combines creative intellect with great technical ability and always delivered a product which exceeded expectations. "

Hapuawhenua Construction Details



Using the actual construction plans, the viaduct was accurately constructed in 3D to its original rail configuration circa 1908. The completion of this viaduct created the first rail link between Wellington and Auckland and opened up the central North Island to development.

"K-38" A 3D Yacht Design



Reflection Graphics designed this new yacht, "The K-38" entirely in 3D software. The actual construction process was managed by using 2D templates sliced from 3D forms.


Complex Design Challenges



The anchoring configuration for this yacht was designed in 3D and fabricated into full scale moulds that were cast into bronze.


3D Design and Computer Fabrication



Designed in 3D by Reflection Graphics, this lounge chair's computer generated shapes were emailed to a large format laser cutter and cut in marine plywood. It was assembled in 45 minutes and later epoxied together.
