Why are my shadows not appearing? I did the lever and slight shadows appeared, but I can't figure out why the piston doesn't have any shadows..... I'm using a spot light with a ton of watts and the bg at a strength of 0.

  • $\begingroup$ Hello, I think you are talking about ambient occlusion ? Your object in the second image doesn't seem to "touch" the ground. Maybe you can try to lower it slightly $\endgroup$ – Gorgious Sep 18 at 7:24

It's not shadow but reflective object for your base:

Despite you use a lot of light source in your scene, non of them actual contribute the "different" for the piston top side.

If you want it to be a little bit more realist, add a bevel modifier to it:

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you! I think this is what it was, in the previous image, because i did edit the reflectiveness of the plane. And thanks for he suggestion of the bevel modifier, it really helped. $\endgroup$ – Google Tech Team Sep 19 at 2:30
