3Dbuilder Pros & Cons

I love SketchUp and use it for most of my 3D projects.
But there are tasks that I prefer to do in some other softwares.
Microsoft's 3Dbuilder is one that I use very often.

Return of the Teddies

SmoothTeddy is a old (2003) small 3D sketching app developped by Takeo Igarashi that can produce simple organic shapes.
It's UI is minimalist and kid oriented, making it a perfect 3D modeling toy for children.
The drawback is... there is no way to export your Teddies.

Really no way ? Let's have a look...

MagicaVoxel and R3F together

Recently Frenchy Pilou (no need to introduce) told me about MagicaVoxel, a free voxel modeler. I was curious so I had a look.
There are people making incredible stuff out of it ! 

But how does it behave with R3F ?
Can it be useful in the modeling process and how to go from one software to the other ?

My rocket is full of eels

After being curious about what the Rocket3F paid version could bring me, I finally decided to buy it.

I will describe more in detail what the Pro version of Rocket3F has to offer in this post.

A rocket has landed in my house!

I recently tried Rocket3F (a sudivision modeler) and loved it right away !
As it says, it's "Fast, Fun and Friendly" to use.

In this post I will tell you a bit more about it...

Photogrammetry tests

I performed a lot of tests in the past with the available free or open-source photogrammetry solutions available.
And yesterday I tested the new Regard3D version so I think it's time to show you these "never published" tests.

Photogrammetry made simple

It's been a while since I wanted to write something about the photogrammetry solutions and pipelines that I've been testing.

Here is an attempt to cover this vast subject and try making it understandable and easy to follow for everyone...

Long time... No post... New love

I know that I don't publish much these days (months... year).
Because most of the time I have nothing to say or just nothing enough exciting to share (IMHO). Or just because (and most probably) because I'm just too lazy to publish my experiments...

But then I felt in love !
And my new lover's name is Neobarok...

Check your Gcode before to print

I recently found a very usefull tool on Thingiverse that lets you check your Gcode file before sending it to the printer.

So I decided to give it a try...GCodeSimulator

Having fun with Meshmixer and Sculptris

Yesterday I had some little spare time between two projects so I decided to train myself at using Meshmixer and Sculptris.
I had no precise idea of what to do before I reminded a famous René Magritte painting from 1934 that would be a perfect subject for Meshmixer.
Along with a bit of Sculptris, I thought it should be possible to achieve a good result in a short time.

In just as little as 3 hours of time I had a new sculpture ready to be printed...
