  1. I can see where I need to improve so much. This is the second drawing I did. I still cannot sculpt in 3D. One of the reasons I am using this style to draw in is that it requires a lot of planning for positive and negative space as well as eye hand control. The planning is what makes it take so long at this time. I can only work so long before I have to stop. It is frustrating. This piece took a week to draw. It is not large and a year ago I could have done this drawing in a day. In other things, if I can fine one paint brush I misplaced, I will be finishing up my "Duck Vader." It is almost done as well.




    Sigh...so much to work on.......

  2. Thanks :)


         The eye hand coordination is improving. But I am still very slow. Things that would have taken, say an hour, now takes many hours. Then, there is the 'planning' aspect of things.


        The saving grace on this piece was that it is basically 'colour by numbers' by way of 'divided areas of colour'. And, it took a lot of painting over and over. Even just following rules of tone and complimentary colours was very, very tedious whereas it used to just flow from the brain to the hands.


         In the effort to increase some of these capabilities and to get more on where I used to be I have been doing pen an ink drawings in the style of Franklin Booth. But, coming from you, I take this as a great compliment. And, I look forward to seeing your painted prints. :)

    Yes, this is an impressive piece of art, both the modeling and the painting. And the printing.


    Thank you :) Took me long enough LOL


    But, it has done a lot of good to work on it to help recover from the issues I had after surgery. I am getting my eye hand coordination back and a bit more clarity in thought and memory. :)

  4. For full transparency, these are the objects I downloaded:

    1. Crow's skull
    2. Ram's Skull

    And the objects I downloaded and heavily modded:

    1. Demon skulls were just basic skull models
    2. Skeletons (Where the skulls came from actually) that were modded to demon skeletons


    Edit: I forgot to add these image references. For the shield, I used black and white art from the magazines in homage to the artists without trying to mimic them.


    However, the Uncle Creepy version I made in 3D was greatly influenced by Bernie Wrightson.

    Everything else I made.

    phew.... that's.... creepy!  😨


    Uncle Creepy...that is 😁



    Edit: I forgot one piece that probably nobody but me would miss, but it is really done now:



    Actually, the glue set up nicely and this is the finished project. I may do some odd touch-ups if I see anything really amiss. That thing is about 18.5 inches from bottom of base to top of display case. The lighting is a bit more natural this go around.












    And all buttoned up in the display case.

    @kmanstudios I was told that the example model I have attached was printed with an Ultimaker 3d printer.

    UM printers can indeed print that clean. But I was looking at the detail in the print job that made me think of the inkjet 3D printers. That tattoo on the bicep is unbelievably clean. It can be done, but it takes a lot of work to get something like that done by hand.

    If I were to add one extra source, which one would you like to see first?

    I really was just asking a far reaching question. I was thinking of the downloaders since I make 99% of my stuff. Yes, I will download some things for modification, but not enough to request something like this.


    So, I would guess the one that is easiest to implement. 😊

  8. Just out of curiousity, will it eventually include (or be separate from this plugin by venue) other model sources such as Youmagine, MyMiniFactory and others?


    Other than that, this is one of those ideas that is sooooo simple that nobody thought of it before. 😂 Way cool implementation and kudos! 😃

  9. As @gr5 says, there are two parts to this:

    1. Creation of model
    2. Print of model

    The printing of a model as you show, if I remember correctly, can only be done with a very expensive ink jet 3D printer.

    Info on tech


    There are machines that are coming out that will make it cheaper than before, but, to get the resolution you see in your example requires a not so affordable/very high resolution printer.

  10. This looks like classic 'non-manifold' or 'non-watertight' issues. It looks as though Cura is trying to close up edges it thinks are proper connections.


    I agree that the .3mf file is needed, but also the model as it is as well be to be definitive about the issue. This would be the .stl or .obj type and not a cura file.


    Also, did you download or did you make it? What program?

  11. This now has almost all the stuff glued into the Desk. The pieces not glued are not present in the image. The wall also has the shield, ram's skull, manacles and antique style bone saws affixed. Now that these pieces are put together, I can see where to do some colour work to make these things 'pop' out a bit better without becoming a distraction. The desk is not glued down to the floor as I still have a bit more floor work to do and it will just be easier. I also will not have to worry about breaking things when I touch up the previously mentioned areas.

  12. The desk is in a sorta final placements before being glued down . All of this is just placed into position, but want to think about it and maybe move a thing here or there or add a thing or two, or not.....


    All lab equipment/beakers and such are 3D printed.

    It's true. We call him Bob.



    These two guys popped into mind when I read that. I know...I know...I am old. This is a better pic. B.O.B is the one on the right....

  14. Rather than an SLA printer, I would prefer that UM stay on the FDM market focus since it would involve basically restarting from scratch in the short run and take away resources from making sure the current/upcoming printers have the best profiles for dimensional accuracy.


    Basically, 'we have really good printers-let us make sure they deliver.


    On the flip side, I am very interested in seeing this new thing.
