  1. Hi guys, Here is the result of a little bit of messing around last night with my Fuel 3D face scan from the 3D Print show in London. I have previously only worked in Voxel mode but last night I saw the true value of surface mode! Having areas of higher polygon density just where you need them is amazing and the sculpting speed is mind blowing. I used the default 3D Coat head as a starting point and merged the face scan to it then blended. My Fuel 3D Scanner comes next month. So excited! p.s. I have also attached the face scan so you can see what I had to work with and the quality that the Fuel 3D produces. I am redoing the eye area as I am going to add eyes, eyelashes, hair and bits as separate objects.

    3D Printing and my experience with it

    Thanks Steve, Very useful. I have 3d printed through Shapeways and other companies but I get my very own 3D Printer (the Zeepro Zim) in early June and am looking forward to starting my adventure. I am sure I will run in to a few obstacles but it is good to have a 'heads up' on what to look for.

    4.1 Released! (Current stable version)

    Congratulations to you Andrew! Thank you for another great release.

    Trouble in Kiev

    It's good to hear they are OK. It is definitely not looking good there at the moment. It looks as though the temporary truce has been broken according to the BBC. I really hope they can put an end to the violence soon. Best wishes to all the Pilgway staff and their families.

    68 Minute Voxel Head

    It certainly doesn't show! You seem like a completely at home in both videos. I always believe a great artist can work with whatever tools he is given though. You have inspired me to start doing a few more 3d sketches for fun which I may start recording. It is so nice to just create something without constraint or purpose but it is something I find I have less time to do at present. I first remember seeing your 2D work in ImagineFX ages ago. Looking forward to seeing more of your 3D stuff...

    68 Minute Voxel Head

    I also bought a copy of Zbrush recently (mainly because of Zremesher) and really love the feel of some of the brushes and the insane levels of detail. I must admit that I still do not feel 'at home' in it yet though. I am so used to the 3D Coat workflow and navigation after years of use that I feel a bit lost sometimes.... Nice Beast! Time for me to give Sculptris another go I think. Do you prefer Sculptris over Zbrush?

    68 Minute Voxel Head

    Hi John, I enjoyed the first head sculpt and was looking forward to checking this out too but the link seems to be broken. I prefer working in voxel mode too and would happily stay there for all eternity. It is just a shame about the crease brush as you say. I also would love the ability to move up and down through different detail levels like zbrush or some kind of simplistic base rig / skeleton for posing.

    V4.1 BETA (experimental 4.1.17D)

    Cool! Looking forward to it.

    It could well be the day after Christmas for Andrew at the mo.

    A creative and happy new year to all

    Happy New Year everyone. My new years resolution is to make more time for sculpting!

    3rd Challenge - Sculpt and texture your hero/heroine

    Thanks ajz3d. Hopefully this version will be much better. I am in the process of sticking him back in a proper T-pose as I want to retopo and pose him afterwards. I have been working on an iClone compatible rig for him and other characters. I did not even notice the palms. It brings to mind the phrase 'hands the size of hams' or 'hands like hams'. Always found the image that conjures up really funny. Not sure why.

    Hi, I'm Brad from Cirri

    Thanks Brad, Cirri looks amazing! What is the deal with flexible funding on IndieGogo? If I back the project but you don't reach your goal, do I still get a copy of the software. P.S. I am quite confident you will reach your goal but just wanted to check as I have only used Kickstarter before.

    3rd Challenge - Sculpt and texture your hero/heroine

    LOOKING NICE! It looks so clean and the harder edged objects are perfect. It almost doesn't look like a sculpt (in the best possible way) I am hoping I get a bit more time to work on mine soon. Xmas holidays yay! I really want it to be third time lucky and actually get a challenge finished for once. More WIPS coming soon.

    Mixamo Fuse on Steam at 50% off

    Hmm, sorry for bringing this program to your attention guys. I tried the demo and wasn't that impressed either. I think Makehuman is looking like a much better alternative for anyone wishing to create base meshes and its free...

    3D Scans from any cellphone

    Holy Crap Phil! That looks good! That is a really dense pointcloud. If this works it will make my recently purchased 3D scanner redundant and make a lot of scanner manufacturers very worried.

    Leap Motion getting a huge update with sculpting

    Nope, still on Windows 7 here. Too scared to upgrade and not a big fan of the new interface.

    Leap Motion getting a huge update with sculpting

    It is plugged, in, the little green light is on, I have installed the update, restarted my machine and the Leap control panel is still saying it is not connected.

    Leap Motion getting a huge update with sculpting

    Yes, very true. I plugged mine in and fired it up yesterday. It decided not to work at all. Maybe it is upset with me for leaving it all alone in a compartment in my laptop bag for so long...

    Leap Motion getting a huge update with sculpting

    Nice find Phil! Mine has been gathering dust for a little while... I liked the idea of it from the beginning but found it a bit annoying to use. What is this 3D sculpting app on the horizon?

    3rd Challenge - Sculpt and texture your hero/heroine

    Forget that last post. I was being a complete doofus! A little thing called liveclay does everything I need. I swear have a memory like a goldfish sometimes.

    3rd Challenge - Sculpt and texture your hero/heroine

    I have switched to surface mode but I am finding it a little unpredictable. I actually prefer working in voxels. Is it possible to add new pieces (limbs / weapons) in surface mode without having to clean it up afterwards? Its busting my melon and killing my mojo. For some things surface seems faster but other things make me feel like I am fighting against it. I feel like I need to switch back to voxals but I am worried about killing the sculpt. Help!

    3rd Challenge - Sculpt and texture your hero/heroine

    Amazing work going on here! I love the face Beat. She looks beautiful but tough kind of like Alicia Keys.. Here is a quickie from me. I have started out with symmetry on to get the details in place but will be turning it off soon enough. I also decided to construct Death Heads II from the inside out. I am creating the face beneath the mask first and sculpting the outer part as a separate object / accessory. (I have other plans for this dude once he is retoppoed.)

    I am glad my dude doesn't have hair... just wires.

    Interesting character ajz3d. Good progress on the face. I look forward to seeing him develop.
