TF3DM 3DM3 3D Printed Sculptures Look Alive When Spun Under A Strobe Light | SF Globe John Edmark is an inventor, designer and artist who teaches design at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. One of his latest creations is a series of 3D-printed sculptures designed with proportions corresponding to the Fibonacci Sequence. When Edmark's sculptures are spun at just the right frequency under a strobe light, a rather magical effect occurs: the sculptures seem to be animated or alive! The rotation speed is set to match the strobe flashes such that every time the sculpture rotates 137.5º, there is one corresponding flash from the strobe light. What makes the sequence so incredibly fascinating is its proliferation throughout nature, such as in the branching of trees, the arrangement of leaves on a stem, the flowering of baby broccoli, a nautilus shell, or even the spiral of galaxies; and that's just to name a few. Regarding his sculpture series, Edmark states on his website: I employ precise mathematics in the design and fabrication of my work. What did you think of the art?
3DS Modèles 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. And not everyone has time to sit down for hours on end and create tree after tree after tree. Which is why I’ve done the hard work for you :) The Box of Goodies! Inside this box of goodies you’ll find 9 nature models that you can keep. As well as this you’ll find a collection of grass reference photos that will help you to better create it in blender. Eg. What will you do with yours? Drop your email address in the box to the right and I’ll send the Box of Goodies your way.
60 Excellent Free 3D Model Websites 3D models represent a 3D object using a collection of points in 3D space, connected by various geometric entities. A free 3D model definitely can save your budget and deadline. On average, a modeler saves over 2 hours of modeling time when they could get a free 3D model. Today, 3D models are used in a wide variety of industries. The movie industry uses them as characters and objects for animated and real-life motion pictures. The video game industry uses them as assets for computer and video games.The architecture industry uses them to demonstrate proposed buildings and landscapes through Software Architectural Models. We understand how useful a 3D model could be. Note: Some of these 3D models have limited rights.
Denali 3D Design Portfolio | Denali 3D Design A sampling of projects designed by Marcus Ritland for 3D printing. My goal with this lamp was to explore the limits of the technology. The full story can be found here: The Story of Twisted Star Lamp. The Twisted Star Lamp, fresh from the 3D Printer 3D Printed Twisted Star Lampshade plus electricity! Composite image with design wireframes and photos of the Twisted Star Lamp. Originally designed as a gift for a graduating medical student, this pendant has proven to be a big hit with professionals in the medical field. Sterling Silver Rod of Asclepius Pendant This piece is based on a drawing from a mathematical book published in 1940. Just for fun – a Hole thru a Hole in a Hole
AISD Middle School Tech Ed - Google Sketchup This page is for resources for the 3D modeling tool Google Sketchup. Google SketchUp is software that you can use to create 3D models of anything you like. The main page (including the download) is at 8 Tips for 3D Printing with Sketchup I am new to the world of 3D printing. So in this guest article, you’ll hear from expert 3D printer/designer Marcus Ritland from Denali 3D Design. He shares some tips to help you create amazing 3D printed models by designing them in Sketchup. [Update June 2014] Marcus has written a book about 3D printing your SketchUp models! 3D Printing 3D printing is awesome – we can all agree on that. But how does one get started making awesome models for 3D printing? 1. Models must be “Solid” to be 3D printable. Solid, sometimes called “watertight” or “manifold” simply means the model is a complete enclosure. Another way to define solid: Every edge in your model must be bordered by exactly two faces. The most common errors (and the corresponding solutions) are: Stray edges (just delete them)Holes (trace an edge to fill them)Internal faces (delete them) 2. Single faces in Sketchup have no thickness, so we need to simulate wall thickness by simply placing two faces a short distance apart. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
