Simple white ceiling fan with spot lights. Rendered with Luxrender.

The model uses utopianqn's excellent fluorescent light bulb model: http://www.blendswap.com/3D-models/author/utopianqn/

Wood texture created with Wood workshop: http://www.spiralgraphics.biz/index.htm

See http://www.luxrender.net for installation instructions if you don't have it already set up.

The environment light and the spot lights are separate light groups so you can change

the intensity of them separately in Luxrender at rendertime.

    Wow, just wow. Great detail, you even have the screws holding on the fan blades. And the little arrows on the on/off switch. Yes, I'm neurotic, I looked. Just curious though, the wood grain seems a bit coarse, and the boards a bit wide. And thanks for the link, even though spiralgraphics only has a @#@$%^&$! Windows version.

    Very good and useful model, thanks for sharing! btw: your meshlight count is an overkill somehow, good that luxrender is that well developed to handle such many meshlights without huge speed impact ;)

    Thanks for the feedback everybody. Jeffie: I knew something was off with the wood texture but I just couldn't see what it was. Thanks for pointing it out. B.Y.O.B.:Yes, the mesh lights are way too many, I realize that now. But it's my first render with Luxrender, it's bound to be flawed :-)

    I think your ceiling fan made it into a movie. See the video under Dx3_1979's post titled Mary (Lance
