Got a freelance commission last Fall for a logo and they came back for a series of catalog shots of their modular exercise station gear.
I was trying for the best appearance and, quite by luck (because I'm not very good at this part of 3D modelling), came up with a Material that looks just like the powdercoated metals I encounter in my day job.
That, plus judicious beveling, leads to a photo-realistic result that is very believable (to me, at least).
