    thanks
    Definitely with perspective on, at least turned on at the end so you can see what it'll look like, the real world is all in perspective.

    I think 50mm focal length is about the same as the human eye sees... at least that's how it is with SLR's. I assume they've used the same standards for 3D apps.
    ITS is a possessive pronoun its color, its shape, its size
    IT'S is a contraction of the words IT and IS It's nice = it is nice, It's fun = it is fun

    YOUR is a possessive pronoun Your face, your car, your thoughts
    YOU'RE is a contraction of the words YOU and ARE you're wrong = you are wrong, you're nice = you are nice

    Usually when you type IT'S, you really mean ITS
    and when you type YOUR, you really mean YOU'RE.

    Default More information for this thread

    This is a great thread and I have enjoyed it very much. Im working on a chapter for a book that is talking about this very process. Getting things out of the computer and onto your desk. It is fascinating. I have also pitched a second book that will focus on artwork that is created with new technology. All of this is a part of my graduate work, bridging the gap between the traditional studio and new technology. I thought I might share a few of the links that I have found on this subject.

    First Im very excited at the growth of digital printing. Ex one has a wonderful process of printing in metal. Here is a direct link to their site and check out the artwork and printing of Bathsheba Grossman and Gil Burvel. http://www.exone.com/eng/technology/..._prometal.html

    Solheim Rapid Prototyping Laboratory in the Mechanical Engineering Department on the University of Washington campus is doing a great deal of research on digital printing. I am happy to report they have just come up with a way to digitally print glass and of course ceramic. http://open3dp.me.washington.edu/

    Now you will also see that solheim prints their recipes. They are open source. Open source offers the opportunity of growth.

    And the blog also reads

    "Are we the first in the world to 3D print translucent porcelain? It took us a while, but we did it!" Assistant Professor Ronald Rael at the University of California at Berkeley and a team of architecture graduate students (Emily Licht, Colleen Paz, Brian Grieb and Plamena Milusheva) have developed a method for 3D printing translucent porcelain.

    3d printing of porcelain. Too cool.

    Now for those who want to try their own extra hobby you can make your own 3d printer. There are a couple one is rep rap http://reprap.org/bin/view/Main/WebHome

    The other is maker bot http://www.makerbot.com/ These are both open source. I have some pictures on my blog Nov 2009 of the cupcake machine at work.

    If that all wasnt cool enough. Yes, they are beginning to digitally print skin and organs. Here is an article that I wrote with links. http://www.creativesculpture.com/blo...an-organs.html

    Please anyone else interested or knowledgeable about this topic please feel free to e mail me any information. And anyone wanting to know about it can certainly follow my blog or tweets.

    Keep this thread alive!

    Bridgette Mongeon

    Oh a couple more things. A great book on the subjec is "Printing the Future" by ed grenda and his worldwide guide to rapid prototyping http://home.att.net/~castleisland/home.htm

    Yo!

    I've been lurking in these forums for some weeks now and I think it's time to start posting.

    So, this is a very interesting thread and I have something to say about it, while lurking on these forums I came across this:

    drRoot01.jpg

    Well, I can't for my life remember in which thread I found it, I only remember it was in the Zbrush Main Forum. Anyway, this impressive piece of work was originally a Zbrush model, it was then printed (it is 13 inches tall if I remember correctly), and the painting was done by the same guys who printed it. The owner of the sculpt said it was done by "Ownage", so I googled ownage and found the Ownage Manufacturing ( www.ownage.com ).

    It's a company specialized in making 3D prints of CHARACTERS made in Zbrush.

    They seem to do 2 unique things when it comes to 3D printing. First, the amount of details is superb, they go as far as making hairlike structures by hand (see Dr.Root err... roots) and second, the incredible painting.

    I'm yet to see a 3D print more impressive than this Dr.Root.

    Haha. Yes, that's my baby. Des is the guy at ownage responsible for bringing Dr Root to life and you can view his WIP thread here. LOTS of amazing prints from Ownage.

    WOW! I hadn't yet seen the actual print of this. They did a wonderful job of bringing Dr. Root to life!!! most times when I see these, I'm very underwhelmed, but this looks fantastic. Reminds me of one of those cool Spawn action figures.

    XN-Sigma & CMOFFIT - I'm in your debt. I've been following the 3D print thing for about 7 years, have a bunch of samples from various companies and machines, but they're all STAIRSTEPPED. I never saw the OWNAGE thread this past year. Actually I'm pretty mad that it wasn't top row with a big "3D PRINT" tag on it.

    Anyway, this company looks pretty amazing. I am a bit nervous that they're in China though... will your character suddenly appear in a HK market for $20 a piece?


    Icreate- You have blown my mind. I'd like to see how clear these come out. MAKE YOUR OWN 3D PRINTER?? How can that even be possible when the real machines are barely toddlers!

    Are you familiar with "Art Clay Silver/Gold"? It's real silver or gold inside a clay base, that you fire, the clay burns away, and all the metal particles bond to themselves. It shrinks of course about 80%. It seems like this could be done as a 3D Print too, that would be awesome for instant jewelry.

    I'm gonna have to do some sculpts for the city or something and get some money to pay for some 3D prints

    The quality is finally getting there, so that just means prices should start dropping (hopefully).

    Keep in touch, people!

    I read about the Desktop Factory 3D printer, but couldn't find any decent models that have been printed using the machine. Have you seen or heard anything about that machine?
    Well I believe the cost just depends on the economy of the country. But I think the cost is just worth it to reach our dreams which is to invent more micro fabrication machines and earn a profit.

    They are really cool. I soon want to build like this.

    Default WIP - Print process tryout help?

    Hello Boys and Ghouls,


    Having sculpted in various traditional media I am now trying out digital media as well.


    A few years past I became a Business Angel on a 3d printer that recently entered the market and I wanted to try out printing this first digital sculpt.


    I was hoping to get some advice for how to set up this sculpt for printing. The printer is an SHS technology. I've enquired the two Ingenieurs about possible specific further details for the printer, answer is pending.

    I would like to print the eyes rotatable in the socks. The eyeballs are made from sphere tools so they should be no problem but any suggestions as to how to fix the sockets would be much appreciated.

    This area is brand new for me so I'm in need on information on all aspects of this process, resolution, size, format etc.


    I was planing to print this fairly simple to start out with and then gradually advance the sculpt, between prints. I would like to try out masking techniques and texturizing next.


    These questions don't really seem to fit into any of the Forum categories(?) so I hope some one can help me out from here.




    Cheers and Tally-Ho!
    -Philip
