Step 1: Read the RULES.... 3dcc.deviantart.com/blog/38320…
If you submit a render that you have done for fun it goes in the "Art for Fun" folder.
My main rule: Put items in the correct folders. Not sure which folder? Take 2 seconds to read the folders description. It's my main pet peeve. Re-read the Rules of the group in the link above please...
The 3DCC is a group designed to host artwork and items from people who produce and develop content for commercial purposes. In other words, if you sell your artwork or items that you create, this is a home for you! Whether it’s for Poser/Daz, 3DS Max, Maya, Zbrush, Flash, for the Web, or items in the physical world, if you are producing works to sell, you can shamelessly promote yourself, your website, your items for sale, here.
As far as the "Rules" for this group goes...if it's not allowed on DA then it's not allowed here. That's about it... For info on where to put what, read this 3dcc.deviantart.com/blog/38320…
When submitting artwork... PLEASE don't flood your entire gallery in at one time. And please don't post 6 images of the same product... 2 or 3 images is cool, but not over and over and over again.
Last but not least... If you don't see your image here and have submitted it, it may have been deleted for being in the wrong folder (or moved to the correct one, but more than likely it will get deleted). If you get bumped from the group it is for numerous submissions to the wrong folders and ignoring a PM note or 2 from me on the subject.

3d Tutorial - Schoen's Batwing Surface**UPDATED - 03-19-2019 - Translation of tutorial for Blender 2.8 **
*Best viewed in HD 1080pIn this latest video, I do the best I can to translate the functions and techniques presented in the 3dsmax version to Blender 2.8. There are a few things which are very different about the Blender process, but mostly it's quite similar. The main difference is that I am not modeling this version to real world scale units. However, the object could easily be scaled to fit any dimensions you may need for 3d printing before applying the modifiers.
*Best viewed in HD 1080p - In this tutorial, I will show a very simple and effective technique to model a triply periodic minimal surface, known as Schoen's Batwing, for 3d printing and design. Schoen's Batwing surface gets its name due to its fundamental region, which resembles a bat wing. Alan Schoen is best known for discovering a minimal surface that he named the gyroid. I will have a translation of this
3d Tutorial - Stereographic Voronoi SphereUPDATE - 02/24/2019 - Stereographic Voronoi Sphere for Blender2.8
This is a companion video to a tutorial I made originally for Autodesk 3dsMax in which I created a Stereographic Voronoi Sphere. In this video we will use the Extra Meshes addon, along with a few modeling and modifier adjustments to reproduce a very similar object in Blender 2.8.
*Best viewed in HD 1080p - 3dsmax 2016 or higher. You will need to have the MCG Sample Tools installed to complete this tutorial. It is a free download from Autodesk. In this tutorial I will show you how to use the MCG modifier, Invert_MCG, to easily create the inversive geometry of a plane, which is a Stereographic Sphere, for 3d printing. We will also create a Voronoi variation of the topology to give an interesting projection if printed. Thank you again for the support!
3d Tutorial | Low Poly Christmas Tree | 3dsMaxIn this "Holiday Edition" tutorial we will quickly model and UV Unwrap a low-poly Xmas tree, complete with star topper ornament. This is just one of many techniques which can be employed to create a low poly tree such as this, but I like this method because it's quite versatile and the model can be used for anything from 3d Printing to Motion Graphics. Please don't forget to like the video and subscribe if you found it useful. Thank you all for the support.
Feel free to support my work by purchasing one of my royalty-free models from the following marketplace locations:
3d Modeling Tutorial | Trifecta Trefoil Knot*Best viewed in HD 1080p - 3dsmax 2016 or higher. In knot theory, the Trefoil is the simplest form of a nontrivial knot. In this tutorial, I'll show you one possible technique for creating a similar structure to Trefoil, which I call a Trifecta Knot, in 3dsmax 2017. The Trifecta Knot is, in actuality, a manifold triply twisted torus loosely based on a Trefoil Knot.
Dupin Cyclide Tutorial - 3dsmax (Updated)*UPDATE 2-23-2019 In this video I will revisit the creation of the Dupin Cyclide in Blender 2.8 and use a much different, but much more simple, method of creation. We will also add a little flair to the shape to give it some visual interest.
*Updated 2-18-2019 This is a companion video to a tutorial I made originally for Autodesk 3dsMax in which I created a Dupin Cyclide. Unfortunately, there is no parametric primitive with a 1 to 1 translation of the same tools or modifiers in Blender to match exactly with the 3dsmax object. Instead, I will attempt to use an alternate strategy. I will use modifiers and standard modeling techniques in Blender 2.8. I'm sure there are many other techniques which could be used in Blender to create this model, but this is the strategy I chose to employ.
This is a tutorial I created last year but never got around to post it until now *. A Dupin Cyclide is the geometric inversion of a torus. In this tutorial, I will show yo
