Nested Dielectrics – I Will Drink to That Fusion 360 Update!

Nested Dielectrics are literally a beautiful thing!

It sounds like a medical condition or power system design, but
In simple terms it is the ability to set priority of the object
to render much like draw order works. The ability to allow the
order of render priority for transparent materials and was part
of the recent
May 30, 2017 update to Fusion 360
.



Here is a blog post on how to use it.

This all got me thinking it was a perfect time to try and do an
interpretation or homage of the extremely popular
Engineers Guide to Drinks
but in Fusion
360
.

The Engineers Guide to Drinks is a 1970 era plot test that we
made it into AutoCAD
(2D
and
3D
) drawing and someone attempted one drink in Revit, but now we will
create a Fusion
360
version using the new dielectric priority.

Here is a deconstructed drink in Fusion 360 as I play around
with more of the new ability and explore ways to re-imagine the
Engineers Guide to Drinks.

There are many practical uses for the new dielectric priority
in design renderings beyond drinks of course, but this is a fun
challenge.

Cheers!
