  1. L'Ancien Regime I am not sure why you say that Rhino or moi3d for that matter doesn't do BREP- Please see https://www.grasshopper3d.com/forum/topics/differences-between-brep-nurbssurface-geometrybase-and-surface for the definitions I am working with. Anytime that a NURBS surface modeler knits or trims surfaces it is creating a BREP-boundary representation. The latest Blender has some configs that can very nicely approximate Maya and Modo UIs. It is absolutely possible to model Daniel Simon's works in Blender. He, in fact, is doing some very nice experiments with Blender poly/SubD concept modeling. See here https://www.instagram.com/p/B8jYvRzFa-a/ kenmo- Michael Gibson has a very elegant mindset. He tries to do the most with the least. I love that the moi3d interface is so so sparse and functional. His implementation of SubD to NURBS is also very clean. I've run some comparisons to high-end Siemens NX and it is much lighter. It is most definitely a great tool for modelers.

    3D-Coat 3.7 updates thread

    Personally I like this idea a LOT- the idea to have a simple mesh smooth out an area or precisely control curvature of a rough sculpw, you can use the retopo mesh to do smooth manipulations to the overall surface or details. This would be very useful for hard surface sculptors who want the workflow to sculpt smooth areas like we do in clay,

    3D-Coat 3.5 updates thread

    Please- I agree- the interface should be more elegant. Consolidate features and rooms.... it is a UI headache.
  5. Of course it is! That would be the perfect blend of the control in Blender/bsurfaces and 3dcoat.
  6. AbnRanger- Thanks for the comments. I am working on an update based on what you said- which really help the tone a lot. I am trying to tighten the timing and framing. Will post as soon as I am done
  7. Hmmm...Maybe I can pick some clearer verses and clarify the intent. You are right- it is pro-life and perhaps the message is muddled. Might have to clarify. Thanks AbnRanger.
  8. I used a little 3d here. Purchased model textured in 3dcoat and rendered in Modo. Video made in After Effects and Premiere. http://youtu.be/Htudu3Re8S8 Crits welcome.

    Would it not be better for LiveClay to be a toggle like Surface Mode- even a replacement for Surface mode?

    David Laser Scanner

    A friend of mine has a David laser setup. One problem is that the Red Laser is not fine or bright enough. You need to scan in a dark room. You probably need a green laser to get a clean scan. Overall though- great value for money eventhough there is a lot of manual cleanup.

    Creating an offset peice?

    That not quite the same. Extract skin has the functionality that you want but it only works by creating a shell inside. If it could shell outward that would be perfect for clothes etc.

    The Pirate

    bloody inspirational work- mindbenders like the name of the company. This should be in the 3dcoat gallery!

    Blender 2.56+ GLSL bump painting

    Like haikalle says Michalis- nothing personal against AbnRanger whom I respect. Apologies for the hijack

    Blender 2.56+ GLSL bump painting

    Question is- Would you rather have Raul or not? I dont think it is unethical at all since he cleared it BEFORE the hire.
