Modo and Unity for Event Visualization

The last few months I have been focusing more on 'traditional' 2d design and UX, but recenty a project has necessitated building components in 3d for event design, which has been a challenge due to the time constraints, but it's also allowed me to stretch my 3d capabilities. I had only been dabbling in Modo previously, but now, I have been using it for direct production, and it' been a blast! The render below is the first draft of concepts on the booth design to the client. 

As with any 3d application, scratching the surface and occasionally using the program doesn't teach you much about the strength of the tool, the flexibility, or the shortcuts and how to get around. Initially, I had a bit of a hard time with the way that Modo treats objects and textures, as it is very different from Maya, which I had been using as my primary 3d application for several years. To bridge the gap, I started modeling in Silo, and began to transition into the Modo modeling and UV tools. Scene layout is a bit more straightforward than Maya, and I am starting to enjoy the navigation of the windows, though I have been using 901 rather than the newer 10 due to my designs being done of MacBookPros; I have not heard good things about the render times on a Mac with Modo 10.
