Chiron Diagnostics built a machine to continuously run in excess of 2500 tests of various kinds in a hospital lab. The help manual for both users and technicians required 900+ illustrations, some flat, some in perspective, some in 3d. In this case the pictures truly were 1000's of words.
The Spotlight film box allowed scientists to expose film without a trip to the darkroom. This sell sheet flyer was created for use as a promotional information piece made available to potential clients, and handed out at trade shows. No photography was used, as the box was created as a 3d model to facilitate animated demos of the equipment. When a last minute logo change was required, the file was just reprocessed, rather than having to schedule and manage a complete photo reshoot.
