DrillSIM Blowout Preventer

A series of views showing the various interactive states of the DrillSIM generic Blowout Preventer.

This asset was used in a number of different bespoke simulators, with steadily increasing functionality, culminating in a version where you could see all the inner workings and operate the valves and RAMs. It was very challenging to build the model in such a way that it could be viewed from any angle and still display what was going on.

A good example of programmer and 3D artist working together.
