WWI Collection for X-Plane 9.70

WWI Collection for X-Plane 9.70 | 3D Printing | Scoop.it

Create your own WWI virtual battlefield over France with this collection of famous warbirds: the Avro 504, the Nieuport 17, the Fokker EIII and the Curtiss JN4. The 3d external models and textures are neat. Only 2D panels are available, but the impact on the framerate is minimal even with 10 planes dogfighting together.

Stuart Welsh's insight:

We create 3D model aircraft with a mix of low resolution to keep framerates high for games and high definition 3d model aircraft for movies or stills renders at http://www.virt3d.com

3D models vs 2D sprites: what's more expensive?
GameDev.net
So we collected some humble funds to pay artists and for some other stuff like Unity. The question is: what is finally more expensive - 2D sprites or 3D models?
Stuart Welsh's insight:

As a 3D model dev myself I would say that we devs need the funding to keep creating the high definition models that we all see in the movies these days. 2D sprites well if you like minecraft type graphics lol...

Most of the architectural models we 3D print at Shapeways never make it into the Shapeways shops as they are private 3D prints for architects and their clients.

Stuart Welsh's insight:

Its good to see intricate 3d models being printed like this. There needs to be a standard 3d printing high definition format though for this type of industry. http://www.virt3d.com

Disney Research Makes 3D Models From 2D Photographs ... | 3D Printing | Scoop.it
As you can probably guess, this research could lead to the creation of high resolution 3D printed recreations of 2D photos. Some have already dabbled in the field of converting photos into 3D printed models, but Disney's ...
Stuart Welsh's insight:

Its good to see a major production company embracing new technology. I hope one day to be printing off my own 3d models at my business website http://www.virt3d.com which has several 3d vehicles.
