Well, I don’t know about you, but it’s been a tense couple of weeks watching the entries come in for the iPad model rendering challenge. The wait is over… Or is it? YES, it is!

All together we had 28 submissions and over 50 renderings from people using a variety of top-notch rendering tools – very impressive the options you all have. Here they are along with the top contenders and the one to take home the prize, a 3D Connexion SpaceTraveler.

Oh! and if you have an idea for a future rendering challenge, just drop us a note.
