In this exercise, we model a topological knot object for 3d printing in 3dsmax. Using simple subdivision polygon modeling techniques and standard tools, we explore a high genus model with curved handles very much like the topologic mesh concepts created in Topmod. We will model using real world scale, for export later to a format which can be uploaded and printed at a service like Shapeways, or just about any 3d printer.
This Tutorial explains how to prepare / setup the usage of "IDLE - The Pyhton Debugger" inside Poser 2010 and Poser 2014. With this PoserVersions there is no more need to download other PythonPackages. You can use the IDLE Version of your Poser Installations Python Package !
In this tutorial, we're going to model a Sacred Merkaba, also known as a Stellated Octahedron or Star Tetrahedron in Blender 2.76. This is a companion video to a 3dsmax tutorial I did of the same object, and we will attempt to recreate that workflow now using Blender. You will need the Loop Tools addon, and the Extra Objects addon enabled for this exercise. They are located in the Addons tab of your User Preferences, under the "Mesh" and "Add Mesh" categories. I'm also using the Pie Menus, and Dynamic Spacebar Menu in this example, but they are not necessary to follow along.
In this quick tutorial, we model what is known as a Sacred Merkaba for 3d printing or digital asset design. Symbolic of ancient spirituality and mysticism, this shape has been part of religious iconography for thousands of years. Geometers and mathematicians recognize it as a Stellated Octahedron, or Star Tetrahedron. I'm using 3dsmax 2012 for this example, but the techniques can be translated to any capable polygonal modeling package.
In this tutorial, we will model a tetrahedron shape with a twist! You will need 3dsmax 2010 or higher. No addons or plugins are required. The techniques used here employ standard polygonal modeling techniques, and take advantage of the Graphite Modeling tools and real world units for creating an object which can be 3d printed, or used as a unique 3d asset for rendering.

We'll start with how to make a basic dynamic dress in Marvelous Designer tutorial and then move on to texturing the dress in Photoshop. I hope these Marvelous Designer tutorials help you!
In this tutorial, we model a sphericon pendant in Blender 2.76. This is a companion video to my latest 3dsmax tutorial of the same. I will attempt to translate the modeling strategy in Blender, to create an object which could be used in 3d printing, or as a unique design element, like a jewelry prop or sculpture, to be rendered in a scene.
In this tutorial, we will explore some basic techniques to model a custom Sphericon pendant for 3d printing. You will need 3dsmax 2010 or higher to follow along. No additional plugins or addons required. The techniques used here make use of general polygonal modeling tools, and can be translated to almost any capable polygonal modeling package. The result is ideal for 3d printing or sculptural design.
This video is a companion tutorial based on my previous 3dsmax video of the same object, in which we will model this complex mathematical sculpture for use as a digital render asset, or for 3d printing. The techniques used here are directly translated to Blender from the techniques I developed in 3dsmax. Be sure you have the Loop Tools addon enabled for this tutorial. I have the Pie Menu, and Dynamic Spacebar Menu addon enabled, but they are not necessary to complete this exercise. As always, thank you for watching, and please don't forget to Like this video, and subscribe to my channel for many more. Enjoy.
In this tutorial, we will create a triply periodic, cubic abstract based on an implementation of the Schwarz P minimal surface. You will need 3dsmax 2010 or higher to follow along. No additional plugins or addons required. The techniques used here make use of general polygonal modeling tools, and can be translated to almost any capable polygonal modeling package. The result is ideal for 3d printing, and can also be used as an interesting scene prop, or jewelry item, in a 3d render.
This tutorial will help anyone with intermediate knowledge of Daz Studio 4.8 and Blender 2.7 create morphs for figures used in Daz Studio.plzholla on 2:35AM Sat, 10 October 2015
There are a number of significant improvements and changes from the UI of iClone 5 to iClone 6. iClone 6 features increased functionality and customization based on your unique workflow, as well as more freedom to determine the appearance, resolution, and color scheme of your workplace and create custom virtual folders for easier access to your own custom categories of content. Check out this tutorial for more info on those topics and more!
This is a Blender companion video to my previous tutorial, in which we will model this complex mathematical sculpture for use as a digital render asset, or for 3d printing. The techniques used here are directly translated to Blender from the techniques I developed in 3dsmax, and we will be taking full advantage of a NEW modifier introduced in the Blender 2.75a release, called "Corrective Smooth". You will need the 2.75a release to follow along, and please be sure you have all the Extra Objects addons enabled in your Preferences. I will be using the Pie Menus, Dynamic Spacebar Menu, and Icons:Dev addons in this tutorial as well, but those are not necessary to complete this project.
This, my latest tutorial, illustrates a step-by-step process to creating a stunning, complex mathematical sculpture. I call it an Octo-Star, because it begins with a 8-point tetrahedron compound primitive. This is a manifold object; ideal for 3d printing, jewelry, or architectural design. The application of this process is limited only by your imagination. No plugins or addons are required. An intermediate knowledge of polygon modeling is recommended.
This is a companion video to my recent 3dsmax tutorial, in which we translate the process of modeling this shape to Blender 2.75, for 3d printing or digital design. The techniques shown here employ standard polygonal modeling tools, and no plugins or addons are necessary. The Dynamic Spacebar, Pie Menus, and Icons:Dev addons are enabled, but not required, for this tutorial.
In this tutorial I will introduce the step by step techniques involved in creating this beautiful, cubic gyroid abstract object in 3dsmax. This interesting shape is ideal for 3d printing, or as a unique digital jewelry design. This object requires no addons or plugins, and can translate to other 3d modeling packages easily. An intermediate knowledge of hotkey shortcuts, and standard editable polygon tools is recommended.
How to render your entire Daz scene with texture animations, base opacity animations and camera switches. Includes how to replace specific images in a rendered image sequence.

This latest video is the Blender edition of my recent modeling tutorial for 3dsmax, in which I demonstrate a relatively quick and painless strategy to achieving a "nested" dodecahedron math model. This fascinating shape is really much less complex than it appears, but creating it will take us through some very interesting, and useful techniques to seamlessly connect concentric polygonal shapes, using the Loop Tools' Bridge command. Along the way, we also utilize advanced tactics for selecting and isolating interconnected surface elements on cumbersome geometry. The resulting model is ideal for 3D Printing; as an interesting piece of jewelry, decor; or simply as a digital design asset.
