Created a 9 minute animation for Osseolink Corporation on their Dental Implant System. Plenty of time was spent creating the models, materials, render settings, and client communication.
Cutting the gums was done with cloth in 3D Studio Max and some clever compositing of layers to isolate the effect. Drilling into the bone was done using the powerful ProBoolean system inside of Max. It wasn't without it's headaches but ended of working well here. Objects often needed to be pretesselated prior to using the boolean operation. Fluids were done with basic Particle Flow and metaballs. All rendering was done using Brazil.
