Kuroyume's DevelopmentZone Free C++ plugins for Cinema 4d IvyGrower 1.2.1 Based upon Thomas Luft’s Ivy Generator with many additional features. Create Abstract Greeble In this tutorial you will learn how to create a complex (around 600,000 polygons) abstract Greeble scene without getting into too much modeling. Loft NURBS, Sweep NURBS, Formula object, Structure tools, and Visible light will be used to create the scene, and Advanced Render will be applied to generate the final image. You will also learn some cool tricks on how to tweak the final rendered image, by modifying the visible light, and adding glare and depth of field in Photoshop. Box of Goodies I’ve realized that the only way to create realistic outdoor scenes is by adding lots and lots of nature elements. Things like trees, flowers, bushes, rocks etc. are essential in making the scene look “believable”. But I also know that creating these things by hand takes a very long time.

This video explains the tool Initialize tab features that allow for quick primitive generation. ZModeler Introduction 60 Excellent Free 3D Model Websites 3D printers have immensely revolutionized the art and manufacturing industry. With advancements in the 3D printer technology, it is now not very difficult to own one, even in your home or office. Moreover, you don’t have to be an AutoCAD engineer to design a 3D model for your needs, as this job is taken up by numerous 3D model websites.
Textures Guide for 3d artists - Part 1 - A good base from baking without 2d knowledge Occlusion Normally I start with the occlusion and put it right over my Value Block group.And then I set the layer blending of the GROUP to multiply.Multiply means that it will get the grayscale version of your image and make the whites transparent. So if you have a 50% gray pixel, that pixel will be 50% transparent. A full white one will be 100% transparent.Here is the occlusion in multiply. Denali 3D Design Portfolio A sampling of projects designed by Marcus Ritland for 3D printing. My goal with this lamp was to explore the limits of the technology.

Sculptris - Download Sculptris is a free 3D modeling application, that is unusual in that anyone can pick it up and play without any technical knowledge. Incredibly, Sculptris doesn't require installation, and is surprisingly lightweight for a 3D modeling application. Each time you start, a ball of 'clay' appears in the center of the program. To the left is your toolkit, your digital 'hands' that will model the clay. Above are controls that allow you to tweak the tool size, strength and alter the material you see. Holding the ALT key and the mouse allows you to rotate the ball, and move the camera. 8 Tips for 3D Printing with Sketchup I am new to the world of 3D printing.

Importance of 3D Printing in Education 3D printing is a technology that allows users to turn any digital file into a three dimensional physical product. 3D printing also allows for massive customization and unlike with music and movies, everything that is printed is protected by copyright. One of the good things about this printing technology is that it changes the dynamic of consumer culture. In other words, it turns users from being passive consumers to active creators. How beneficial 3D printing is in education ? Yes schools are still in the early stage of adoption of this innovative technology, but the exciting thing is what is to come. 3D printing provides several features that can revolutionize education here are some of them :
