This is how I normally render objects with no reflections. If you have an object with reflective material you need to do a few more steps. Let's see why (chrome and other materials are in another FDA tutorial). If you create an object made of chrome and you go to make a rendering you will have the result like in the image below

We can have a better result with a few more steps...Let's create two big boxes. like in the image below.

Fig. 12


Create a white self-illuminated material and apply it to the boxes. If you make a rendering you will see a big difference between image 10 and 12

Thank you for a very detailed tutorial! I'm a design student myself and did have CAD course in my university but they are not as good as your tutorials!
