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...

Saga Eugène / InMoov : Right hand CAD data (WIP)

I know that quiet a few people are waiting for the hand to be released as CAD data.
I received several personal mails asking me when it will be made available.
The answer is "I don't know...".

But for sure it's on its way.

Nouvelle année et robot ancien

Bonne Année à tous !

Happy New Year to everyone !

Честита нова година на всички !

Nous avons passé la soirée de réveillon chez mon pote Looping qui, lors de fouilles archéologiques, a découvert ce qui pourrait bien être l'ancêtre de Eugène et de InMoov.

L'âge du robot n'a pas encore pu être déterminé, mais les analyses de ses restes sont en cours afin d'établir une datation au carbone 14.


Saga Eugène / InMoov : Jour 117 (collage / montage)

Ce week-end Mad et Gilou sont passés à la maison et on a bossé sur le robot.

Tandis que mes deux acolytes effectuaient des test de "ramp" (gestion des accélérations / décélérations) sur les moteurs à l'aide d'un autre potentiomètre que celui extrait des moteurs, je me suis affairé à collé les différentes parties de la cage thoracique, d'un biceps et d'un avant-bras.

Saga Eugène / InMoov : Forearm CAD data

CAD data of the InMoov's right forearm are now available for download as STEP (.stp) and IGES (.igs) format.
These parts have been completely retro-engineered from the original STL files and are ready to be used in any CAD solid package.

They've been redesigned with hi accuracy. There's no more overlap between parts and they should give you better smooth prints depending on your tessellation settings. 

As I won't upload the left version if you need the left forearm, just perform a mirror of all the parts.


UPDATED November 15th 2013

The following parts are now also available as step and iges :

  • robcap3V1
  • elbowshaftgearV1
  • robcap3V1+elbowshaftgearV1 (as single part)
  • RobPart4V3
  • RobPart5V2

And the complete forearm as a single file will be uploaded tomorrow.

The next parts that will be made as solid CAD will be the complete right hand.

So stay tuned...

How to modify a STEP file in DesignSpark Mechanical (tutorial)

On the DesignSpark forum many people are asking why a STEP file is locked and can't be updated when imported in DSMech.
And they are right to think that this is a very bad point !
I completely agree and I hope the developers will allow STEP modifications in future versions. DSMech will gain popularity if they do so !

But there's a solution and it's called SketchUp...

Edited 29/04/2014 : there's a much easier way as mentioned by Didier in the comments. Thanks Didier !
