Mirror / Disco Ball (free 3D model  blend + obj) by pnn32 Mirror / Disco Ball (free 3D model  blend + obj) by pnn32
Created especially for current artwork ( fav.me/d6lnp47 ), but I decide to share it :)

--
:bulletgreen: In attached ZIP file you will find model of mirror / disco ball, in two formats:
.blend - Blender scene (v2.66a)
.obj + .mtl - Exported to OBJ format
Macro file for Octane (.ocm) is also included

:bulletyellow: Some notes:
Diameter of ball is 20 units (20 centimeters)
Ball is covered with 1147 small mirrors each of 10x10mm
Materials for reflective surface and glass base are separated
Total number of polygons is about 43k
Mounting parts and light source is not included

:bulletred: You are free to use or modify this model as you see fit for use in your own renders, and it's free to use for both commercial and non-commercial renders. You may not redistribute or resell this object, or any derivative of this object, by itself or as part of another package.
Link to this page is highly appreciated, but not required.


:bulletred: :bulletred: :bulletred: WARNING: :bulletred: :bulletred: :bulletred: Octane 2.06 may hangs (during scene compiling) if this .obj mesh is added to scene, but 1.55 and 2.14 (RC) versions works well.

:star: Update 2015-12-12
The realistic reflections achieved, here is the result >>  fav.me/d9lfaag :aww:

Now the bad news :shrug:
Using this ball with mesh light in Octane Render (right image) is unobvious... we need some sort of light source with parallel rays to get small and crisp patches of reflected light.
Any suggestions are welcome... :eager:

Thanks, but I get an error when importing to 3ds max. Second time it crashed max. Just FYI.

I've included .blend file in archive, so you can try to export it into 3ds or another format (Blender doesn't require installation, it can be run just from unpacked archive). Probably there are some errors with mesh, because one version of Octane Render was also crashed during importing.

Nice work, but... I can see reflections, which is rendered, but glare rays were added as postwork?

I hoped that reflections (which should be small bright spots, not blurred areas like on right side of promo image) will appear one day as render result, but... I can't do that even with Octane render :shrug:

Oh yes. I realy tried it, with several spotlights directly to the ball! But without any result. :D (Big Grin) 
So I add some gobo-lights with a colored bmp. It's not the result I've wished, but for the first try it's ok.
