If You Dream It, You Can Print It… in 3D!

If You Dream It, You Can Print It… in 3D! | Infographie 3D | Scoop.it

So, we sort of can't get over the fact that all these futuristic ideas keep coming true, and are actually accessible to regular folks. Whether it's a gray hair pill in testing, a blue light that zaps zits, or a digital camera that captures 360 degrees, it's no joke that the future is now. Today, this amazingness rings true in the form of 3D printing.

VRayPattern review

VRayPattern review | Infographie 3D | Scoop.it

VRayPattern is a 3DS Max plugin made by iCube, publishers of the well-received MultiScatter and VRayScatter plugins. At first glance VRayPattern appears to be another entry into the burgeoning proxy scattering market, already well served by the aforementioned and competitors such as Carbon Scatter, Forest Pack Pro and ScatterFX.

The Mill by Chris Kowal

The Mill by Chris Kowal | Infographie 3D | Scoop.it

The Mill is a conceptual design project, done by Vancouver based 3D Artist Chris Kowal, to showcase MP Lighting‘s LED lights. Chris started his WIP thread about this project on the forums back in July 2011 and kept updating us about his progress. Yesterday the work was finally published in the form of an interactive website, best viewed on a tablet device and designed with the sales team of MP Lighting in mind offering them a portable tool to help their clients visualize lighting designs. All the work (design, modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering) was done by Chris except the coding of the site.

3ds Max 2013 announced!

With this release, we tried to do something slightly different. Along with the bigger features, we tackled improving things that might seem small, but can be annoying or cause inefficiencies when you work. For example, we now allow you to move the viewport while creating various entities like arrays so you don’t stop creating, change your viewport, then begin again. Instead, you simply move the viewport while continuing to draw/create. These are old legacy issues, many of you are used to it, but it doesn’t mean it needs to remain that way. We tackled dozens of these workflow improvements and you’ll encounter them all over the product. This is one outcome of our 3dsmaxfeedback.autodesk.com effort from a year ago.

Mechanical design for everyone: SpaceClaim 3D Direct Modeling

Mechanical design for everyone: SpaceClaim 3D Direct Modeling | Infographie 3D | Scoop.it

SpaceClaim is a solid modeling application with a goal similar to SketchUp: make a 3D mechanical design tool so easy that anyone can use it. We helped the SpaceClaim team read and write SKP files years ago, but their latest release is a big step forward for engineers who are looking to use SketchUp in their workflow.

With SpaceClaim, engineers can convert conceptual designs in SketchUp’s native SKP format (which is optimized for fast performance) into precise solid models needed for mechanical design and manufacturing.

3D-Printer with Nano-Precision

3D-Printer with Nano-Precision | Infographie 3D | Scoop.it

Printing three dimensional objects with incredibly fine details is now possible using “two-photon lithography”. With this technology, tiny structures on a nanometer scale can be fabricated. Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) have now made a major breakthrough in speeding up this printing technique: The high-precision-3D-printer at TU Vienna is orders of magnitude faster than similar devices (see video). This opens up completely new areas of application, such as in medicine.

Making an Environment Concept from a 3D Base

Making an Environment Concept from a 3D Base | Infographie 3D | Scoop.it
If you prefer the freedom of painting your lighting in Photoshop, this tutorial teaches you a fast way to set up masks in Photoshop from renders with red, green, blue and black, without the slow tedious work of tracing them by eye with the Paint Brush or Lasso tool. The masks used in this tutorial are two different renders using the Red, Green and Blue channel. One render separates the faces facing different directions, the other separates different objects.
Samuli Lautjarvi is a 24-year-old digital painter from Finland. He has been working in a mobile game company for half a year and doing minor freelance gigs (CD covers and game graphics). His biggest enthusiasm is painting environment concepts, for some of which he uses Sketchup models as a basis.

For 3D modeling and rendering, I used SketchUp and Kerkythea (both free) and then Photoshop for the 2D part of the process. I won’t go into detail about how to model in Sketchup, if you’re new to the program, there are many good tutorials here to get you started. I have also included the model with Scenes for download here if you want to just practice the rendering and Photoshop work.

Interview :: John Carter: Scott Patton of Legacy Effects | Infographie 3D | Scoop.it

John Carter may have explored Mars, but for the movie it didn’t begin there. Before anything can actually be made for film, it must start as a concept. This has traditionally been in the form of drawings and paintings, but thanks to advancing technologies and innovative studios, an entirely new form of Concepting is coming forward.

Elvin Aliyev’s 3d recreation of Tadao Ando’s Church of the Light and adjoined Sunday School extension is one of the best made and look better than any photo I’ve seen of these projects. His render set showcases the design in a remarkable way with his attention to the materials, camera placement and light which shows great respect to the work of the master that Ando is. Now we can have a glimpse into Elvin’s work process.
