16 Psyche is one of the ten most-massive asteroid-s in the asteroid belt. It is over 200 kilometers in diameter and contains a little less than 1% of the mass of the entire asteroid belt. It is thought to be the exposed iron core of a protoplanet. It is the most massive metallic M-type asteroid.
Scene is ready to render. You'll get same results as above preview images when pressing render. No post production is done on previews.
Actual Metal Asteroid diameter in real life is over 200 kilometers. In the 3d scene however, diameter of asteroid is set to 152.6m x 142m x 152.8m Meter - So average diameter is ~150 Meter
No third-party plugin is used. High quality Textures (8k). Everything is named, layered and organized properly.
Model details is mainly achieved by displacement modifier + turbosmooth - this gives you some flexibility to adjust the look and polycount.
Subdivision is set to 4 at render time ( 24 Million Polys during rendering ). It's set to 3 for scanline version - This high level of subdivision allows the displacement modifier to create extra details on surface of the planet. This is specially needed for close up shots. For further distance a lower subdivision would be enough if you need to speed up rendering time or lower memory consumption.
It's easy to take the source model & provided maps to re-create the planet in other software or to change the rendering engine.
OBJ format has 2 versions of the Asteroid model: ~49k Polys which is the default base model and also a lower poly version with ~3k polys.
