Rendering Section Rules

Mecabricks is not an image sharing platform. Each artwork posted shall be carefully crafted and well composed. The purpose of this section is to showcase your best work only. Always favour quality over quantity.

Acceptable Entry Content
  • You must be the original creator of all images you submit. You may not submit an image made by, or on behalf of, someone else unless you have the authorization.
  • When using a background image, ensure that you have the appropriate rights. For instance, images from Google Image may be subject to copyright.
  • Image can only be posted once. If it is relevant to multiple models, carefully choose one only.

Entry Quality Standards
  • Image shall be computer generated using Mecabricks online render mode or any other third party 3D software like Blender. Screenshots from the Mecabricks workshop are not allowed.
  • Image background shall not be transparent.
  • Image shall bring something special to the 3D model.
  • Image shall be related to the model it is posted in.
  • Image shall not depict minifigures only unless there is something special that shall be explained. Adding a couple of bricks in the background is not considered a waiver.
  • Image resolution shall be high enough to avoid resizing degradation when displayed in Mecabricks. 1920x1080 is a good starting point.

  • Any images not following the rules will be deleted without any warnings.
  • Images do not disappear. If a render has been taken down by an admin do not post it again.

External services
To showcase images not following the Mecabricks rules for the render section, you have the possibility of using external hosting services like imgur.com which doesn't require any account. Upload your image and copy and paste the BBCode provided in a Mecabricks comment. It shall look like the following:

Most of the rules here make sense to me, but what do you mean “image shall not depict minfigures only”? Does the render need to have some brick built content as well, or can it not have a minifigure on a plain coloured background with nothing else? Thanks.

@XForce198 This is to avoid all the recent images "me as...". Minifigures on a plain background or with images taken from Google Image are not allowed. This section is for artworks. There shall be something really special about the minifigure or the composition for an image like this to be kept. An example would be the procedural texture research made by Renderbricks.

You are still free to post them in a comment under the model as suggested in the External Service section.

@Phantom_E This is not the purpose of the section. For these images, you can host them somewhere else and display them in a comment as explained.

Find below an example of the type of images expected to be posted.

Can I still render for my profile picture?

@Phantom_E you can still render anything without worrying about the rules, it’s just that you can’t upload them. So yes, you can still render your profile pic.

You can also add the url tag around to make it a link to the bigger version.

Thanks Scrubs for clarifing all this. I did have some of my renders taken down, so I guess I know where they went. Thanks for the rules, because I think this is going to help me with making much better renders, and improve my digital LEGO skills. Thanks a lot Scrubs!
