Hello and welcome to my website, Stein Designs.
I’m Ben, an aspiring engineer/designer and this website is dedicated to showcasing the Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) I have produced, during my spare time.
I have a passion for creating breathtaking 2D and 3D images of extraordinary clarity and detail, so all images, renderings and 3D models on this website have been created solely by me, on my brother’s computer.
I hope you enjoy looking around the website and please feel free to give me any feedback regarding my work or the website by navigating to the 'Contact' page on this website.
I am Ben, a student who is passionate about design, engineering and technology.
To produce my work, I use multiple software, those include:
• SolidWorks (3D CAD software) to design, assemble and create 3D models of objects.
• KeyShot (rendering and animation software) to apply textures, lighting and backgrounds to 3D models, animate them and then render them, to create stunning images.
• Adobe Photoshop (photo editing software) to enhance colour in images, add text, crop them and add interesting effects.
• Adobe Illustrator (graphics software) to create and convert vectors and to produce 2D graphics.
In the near future, I am looking to broaden my understanding of the current software I use and also look into using Blender, Cinema 4D, Maya, ZBrush and Adobe After Effects to create more mesmerising work.
Ever since I was young, I was always interested in how things work. I distinctly remember watching a documentary with my dad, about design and a quote from the documentary, has stuck with me ever since.
"Every man-made product in the world, from a pencil to a car, needs to be designed."
This curiosity I had, for how products are designed and engineered, led me to attend an engineering specialist school in September of 2015.
At school, I was introduced to Computer Aided Design (CAD) software (SolidWorks) for the very first time. I loved using and experimenting with the software, as it involved using skills I had already picked up using Photoshop and Illustrator in a 3D environment.
I was often asked by other students in the class and teachers for help. This encouraged me to learn the software at a greater depth at home.
Whilst researching 3D CAD software, I found out that you could render 3D models in another software, making them appear photorealistic. This led me to try out KeyShot and create most of the images you see on this website today!
