We’ve enjoyed taking a look at the new version of VRay for Rhino and are especially excited about the addition of VRay proxies. In short, a proxy is a crude representation of a complex mesh geometry within modeling space. It’s linked to this mesh geometry, which is imported only at render time. This results in a significantly improved user experience as well as increased speed and complexity of renderings.
An area of pattern exploration on the TCPA is the face of the hall into the main lobby.
