    EinScan Pro+ scanner tutorial

    Hey Shawn, I was wondering if you decided on a scanner.

    EinScan Pro+ scanner tutorial

    I don't know if I can help much since this is the only one I've used. I can say this one is pretty fast. They told me it's the fastest one available under $20,000. I have a new video I'll post below showing how fast I can scan a toy car (under 20 minutes for "OK" quality on a turntable with color). I'm working on another video now using it in handheld "rapid" mode and with a decent video card it's near real time as you slowly wave it over the object (my friend Pete in this case). I'm not always crazy about the color it creates, sometimes it's a little off. Maybe I need to calibrate it again. If you do decide to go with this one please use the Amazon link in my videos, I could use the bonus I get from it. There's also a 5% off discount code. Edit: here's the code and links. Here's a coupon code for 5% of at the ScanIt!

    What Are You Working On ?

    Funny to see the car here since I've been working on a car today too. Except I was 3D scanning a toy car.
  4. A reseller for EinScan sent me a whole set of their most high end scanner and accessories to review and make tutorials. According to my contact in China the EinScan Pro+ is the fastest scanner available under $20,000. I found the setup a little convoluted. For one thing the scanner and the turntable both need USB ports so you need two ports available and they also both need power outlets. Another issue I had is that the scanner is very dependent on your video card so my older card wouldn't cut it and I had to buy a new video card (GTX 1060 6GB). Once I got it set up though, it works perfectly. Really nice quality scans and very fast. It does have trouble with dark colored or shiny objects but no trouble with smooth surfaces. If anyone is interested the scanner is not cheap but I have a 5% off discount code for their Amazon store 052M656Z https://amzn.to/2Lfgu4c I've done videos for unboxing and a scanning tutorial (including some 3D-Coat use) so far.
  5. Hey guys and girls, just wanted to share and I have a new 3D scanning tutorial using your camera and Reality Capture.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    It looks like this forum thread was renamed somehow. It's supposed to be the beta thread, not RFill. Edit: I changed the name back but it looks like email links still go to a broken page.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    In the latest version I used Instant Meshes for retopo, then marked all the seams and unwrapped. About 7 of the UV islands are squashed flat so I can't really use them, they create a rainbow pattern on the model instead of a checkerboard.

    Floating keys for tablet PCs

    A few months ago I got a convertible laptop, thinking it would be amazing for sculpting in 3DC as a tablet. Only when I tried it did I realize how very much you need the keyboard. I wonder if there would be a way to create a floating window with just the basic keys that are really needed for 3DC like Ctrl, Alt, Shift, Esc, and Space. The window would have to be always visible once opened and would need to be floating so you can move it out of the way if you need to. Thoughts?

    State of Win 10 Creators Update -> Tablet -> Pen ?

    Switching to Tablet PC solved it for me, thanks.

    State of Win 10 Creators Update -> Tablet -> Pen ?

    I've also sent email to support. I have an Intuos 3 and my tip and right-click buttons have flipped, but only in 3DC. They work normally in other programs.

    Can't find "cloth" tool inside Sculpt room

    Strange, I didn't have to make any special layers when I took the above screenshot. I just made a sphere and looked at the tools. I also see the tooltip like all the other tools. Well, as long as you got it solved.

    Introduce yourself!

    Can't find "cloth" tool inside Sculpt room

    It's there. Just make sure you're model is in Voxel mode, not Surface. If you look at the Vox Tree and see an S next to your layer click it to switch to V. The tool is at the bottom of the Objects section on the tool bar or Space bar panel (see attached pic)

    Backface Culling and Ignore Backfacing in Retopo

    To be clear, for the most part there is one dev. And in my experience using this software almost since the beginning, Andrew is very good at responding to support emails.

    Time for a Tablet Version of 3D-Coat?

    Yeah somehow it showed up for me and I assumed it was new. I realized how old it was later.
