  1. As for the forum, new members have to have their posts approved before they appear. Sorry for the trouble but we've had a lot of spam.

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    OK I got it, Loaded the file into LightWave and saved it back out as an OBJ, which I guess created a new MTL. That one loaded fine.

    No luck with 4.9.05. I'll try going further back.

    OK I have a problem with the latest version. A client has sent me 3D scans with textures to clean up but the textures aren't loading in Surface mode. Usually I just turn on "Import w/o Voxelization" and that solves it. But now I just get a solid shader color. I've tried the original OBJs they sent and also tried converting that to an LWO first.

    That would be great. I didn't know we could do that.

    Superhero Girl

    Superhero Girl is all finished sculpting, posed, and 3D printed at about 8 inches tall with the base. Now I'm filling in the seams with wood filler and sanding. Then she'll be primed and painted. But I need suggestions for the color scheme. I've been some sample renders but I'm open to suggestions. I've heard 3 opinions so far and they're all different. I'm partial to the green and white myself.

    3D Scanned Shoe

    Very nice! What did you scan with? I've done a number of sneaker scans with Reality Capture and my EinScan Pro+ scanner.

    Edgar's sketchbook

    That's really cool. Very well done. I've always wanted to do a train since I saw the one Lee Stringer did for the show Firefly.

    Cannot open 4.8 of 4.9 but 4.7 runs fine

    Sorry I don't know anything about macs but just wanted to clarify. It's 3D-Coat, not Coat 3D.

    Thanks for fixing the menu pinning, I was just going to ask about that.

    Superhero Girl

    This a WIP I've been working on for the past week. She will be posed and 3D printed as a 7" figure. All finished with the 3D-Coat part I think. Moving to LightWave for posing now. Since it will be printed these colors are not final. I may decide on colors later if I paint her.

    Hitting Enter at what point? After reading the previous post I did manage to clean it up by switching back to voxels at a very high res (like 8x compared to 1.5k) and using the Smooth brush at 100%, no pen pressure, small enough to not destroy the main details. Once the lumps were gone I switched back to Surface and decimated.

    This is a problem that has been in 3DC ever since Surface Mode was invented. If you start with voxels, then convert to Surface you're stuck with these ridge lines all over your mesh that are very difficult or impossible to smooth, causing the whole mesh to be bumpy. In this screenshot you can still see them even after using Clean Mesh and a lot of brushing with the Clean tool. I would love to see this addressed.
