Re: Reality Check
Hi Anh─Éinh

Sorry for the late reply.

I think the key difference between our lamp models is that I don't rely on the shininess property of the object.
Instead, my lamp makes use of the sweethome3d_window_mirror prefix.

If the name of an object (group) in a model (e.g. the lamp) starts with sweethome3d_window_mirror, SH3D will render the object surface as a mirror (only in photo creation at the two best levels).

The mirror model in the stock furniture catalog is a good example for this feature. The following is the OBJ File of that model with the g property (object, group name) set to sweethome3d_window_mirror
