### 3d Tutorial | Orderly Tangle Of Four Equilateral Triangles

Skill Level: Regular / Views: 12 / System Requirements: 3dsmax 2010 or higher, or any capable polygon modeling software.

In this tutorial, we create an Orderly Tangle of four interlocked, equilateral triangles for 3d printing or render element. If you haven't watched the previous Orderly Tangle tutorial, please go back and view that one first. The symmetrical arrangement of these triangles fit together to create a tight bond between each element, and will 3d print as one fused object.

### 3d Tutorial | Orderly Tangle Of Six Interlinked Squares

Skill Level: Regular / Views: 2 / System Requirements: 3dsmax 2010 or higher, or any capable polygon modeling software.

In this tutorial, we create an Orderly Tangle of hollow squares for 3d Printing or digital design. The symmetrical arrangement of these interlocked squares fit together tightly and will be fused together to create a single object in most 3d prints. A useful technique for most symmetrical platonic solids.

### 3d Tutorial: Sacred Merkaba Revisited

Skill Level: Regular / Views: 4 / System Requirements: 3dsmax 2010 or higher, or any capable polygon modeling software.

In this video, we revisit the creation of the Merkaba (Stellated Octahedron) shape first presented in a previous tutorial on my channel (see link below). In this video, I'll show you an alternate modeling technique to achieve the same object, which eliminates at least 2 or 3 steps. This new technique uses standard polygonal modeling techniques, and It's a much faster method. Hope you enjoy.

### COF Tutorial : Saving Poses in Daz Studio 4

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 24 / System Requirements: Daz Studio 4.x

This is just a basic tutorial on how to save poses in Daz Studio. Someone on the HW forums had been asking how to do this, and it was written to help them out. After some thought, I figured that it might be of some help to other people, so I've gotten my forum post converted to a PDF file and I'm offering it out to the general public. If you find it useful, that's great. It's aimed at the beginner content creator, or just the novice who wants to save that really cool pose they did for future use. File is a zip file containing a single PDF.

### Model A Sacred Merkaba In Blender 2.76

Skill Level: Regular / Views: 17 / System Requirements: Blender 3D v2.7x or higher.

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.
