3 top tools every 3D artist should know about Which 3D tools are the best on the market? That's a difficult question to answer definitively, but what we can tell you is which ones artists like the most. That's because every year, the CG Awards sees the industry vote for their favourite tech. Fascinating Lamps by Calabarte Calabarte is the pseudonym of a Polish artist named Przemek Krawczynski, whose art takes on a peculiar but incredibly beautiful form: cool lamps. The name itself is a portmanteau of two words – art (obviously), and calabash, the fruit that carries his imagination. The calabash is a bottle gourd originating in India, although Calabarte gets his supply from Senegal.

QuaDror, a New Structural Joint to Build On Posted by Robert Blinn | 23 Feb 2011 | Comments (8) Core77 had the opportunity to be invited into Dror Benshetrit's Studios to take a glimpse at QuaDror, his new structural joint. QuaDror is a lap joint construction that provides for limited freedom of movement without the use of a traditional pin. The design is elegant enough to prompt wonderment that it hasn't already been built in the world, even as forgotten carpentry. By superimposing two lap joint frames with miter cuts, Dror makes the formation of a collapsible structure possible. Once a load is applied to the top of the two frames, it spreads out to an optimal angle for load distribution.
Folding Concrete?! Flat-Pack Building Blocks of the Future This may be the biggest invention since that long-standing, still-universal staple of the construction industry: the red clay brick. A single identical unit, multiplied by four, forms a rigid structural element – stack these and set them side by side, and you have nothing short of a material revolution. Watch the videos to fully see how these function!
Password Strength Meter design pattern The currently entered password in the password field is measured on an often horizontal scale from none to max security. If the password is weak then only a small portion of the horizontal bar is highlighted, and oppositely if the password is strong then a larger portion of the horizontal bar is highlighted. The password strength is also appropriately indicated by coloring the bar in a color associative with good or bad: Green indicating a strong password and red indicating a weak password. How strong a password? The definition of a strong password can be intensely argued. A forced complex password at first glance only spells increased security, but forcing too complex and rigid rules on the complexity of a chosen password can have the opposite effect.
Pop-Up Corner Lamps Illuminate those Hard-to-Light Places Standing lamps in corners often feel a bit like round pegs in square holes, not quite fitting the space in a way that would feel intentional. This flat-pack, fold-out solution from Well Well Designers is a low-cost and elegantly-designed approach that is minimalist in terms of both materials and appearance. The product packaging and typography are all comprehensively considered in form and function – this is not a typical in-the-box retail object, but a simple black (or blue or red) on white approach.
Resignation letter as Bishop Dear President Martin Firstly, please may I thank you for your amazing example and love. I feel your love and concern for me personally, and hold you in the highest regard as a friend and brother. The Ludlow Project - Saving Hot Metal Typecasting History by International Printing Museum WE MADE IT! Thanks so much for all your support. We made our goal a few days ago and then some! All the extra support is really appreciated as well.

DIY Mud-Brick Machine Builds Life-Sized, LEGO-Style Blocks Rammed earth structures make great use of local and sustainable construction materials, but pressing and curing each layer can be tough to do for small-scale contractors or do-it-yourself types. Hence, this ingenious portable hydraulic press from MecoConcept, which can pump out finished blocks in thirty seconds right on site. Set on wheels, the brick-making machine can be moved along as needed, requiring only one person to work it at a time. Styled after LEGOs, each pressed-mud building block is shaped with bumps and grooves on each surface for easy stacking and side-by-side placement.
5 rules for visual direction in interaction design 03. Ensure visual consistency Consistency is important in all aspects of interaction design, not just visuals. However, inconsistencies in visuals are glaring (just check out the The World's Worst Website Ever to get a vision of design hell). Consistency creates a sense of logic in how your site is designed and arranged, which creates a more gratifying experience (and we all know happy users are returning users).
