Baker Hughes

Overview

Ask any 3D animator about some of the more difficult effects to pull off in a 3D simulation and "particle effects" will quickly appear near the top of the list. To illustrate what makes a Baker Hughes different from the competition, we needed to show how an additional layer of metal is added to the backface of the bit to give it more resistance to the rigors of drilling through solid rock. Watch as we rotate this bit and add a pass of molten metal the steel surface on the underside.
