This is a grand piano modeled in Blender 2.58, the latest version, and exported in .obj format, as well as the original .blend format, which contains all of the modifiers, original Luxrender materials, and more. My primary concern is that this model is beautiful, useful, and high-quality. It was modeled off of many reference photos. The .obj export was tested and worked perfectly.
The first image was rendered in Luxrender, one of the most accurate rendering systems that you can find. The other renders were done in Blender's original rendering engine. The materials in the .obj file are the ones that were used in all but the first image. The .blend file, however, contains the Luxrender-compatible materials that only render with Luxrender, which is free and open-source.
Note: the only part of the model that was UV-mapped was the wood on the inside of the piano. No other mapping was necessary.
