I was going to start a topic about my new journey into digital sculpting, but I decided that I didn't want this topic to be just about me. I'll still give my story, trials, tribulations, joys, and frustrations, but I hope others will too. This thread is then a place to discuss anything about digital sculpting. If you are a sculptor, I want to hear your thoughts on it and your journey with it, or your reasons for avoiding it. If you are a painter/collector, what are your thoughts? What do you like about digital, what do you dislike. I'll leave it here for now, and come back and post my story and where I'm at in another post. (Do you guys think I should pin this, or are we getting too many pinned topics? Do we need a separate thread for 3D printing, or will this suffice?)
lexomatic posted a topic in KickstarterSome friends are doing this, under their Infinite Dimensions Games, though I'm not involved. The Kickstarter will take place in March and is for digital files for 3D print. If I remember correctly there are no physical rewards. While people should hold off until the details of the crowdfund are released, my understanding is that the core set is done, any stretch goals will pay for the labour of doing the design/sculpting of those items only, so the core set would be ready as soon as funding period is over. They have a Facebook and Instagram and more for lots of previews (but I'm not linking because I'm not sure what on those sites will break forum rules), and if anyone is attending BreakoutCon this year in Toronto, they will be there displaying.
I found this model somewhere on the internet, alone and uncredited, so I have no idea who made it or what it is or anything. People have suggested that it's a Kirby, whatever that is, with a human face pasted on. I like it, and I'll print about a dozen of them, and make up some stats to use them in my D&D campaign in some way. I'm leaning towards some kind of waddling tar-baby critter, but we shall see. The original model was only about 1.5mm tall, so I've rescaled it by 1500% to roughly 20mm.
Pingo posted a topic in General Sci-Fihttp://www.bbc.com/autos/story/20160324-the-story-behind-chinas-minecraft-military-camo It sounds counterintuitive (and apparently was much second-guessed and delayed after its effectiveness was first discovered in the 1970s), but digital, square-based "Minecraft"-type camouflage is far more effective at visually disguising forms, both up close and at a distance, than traditional blobby-form camouflages. Last September China held a massive military parade to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII, showing off for the first time many military vehicles decorated with digital patterns of squares in four colors. US Army Lieutenant Colonel Timothy R O'Neill, PhD, credited with the discovery almost forty years ago, shared his original test before-and-after photos with the BBC: http://ichef.bbci.co.uk/images/ic/raw/p03nxg80.jpg http://ichef.bbci.co.uk/images/ic/raw/p03nxg7f.jpg
