3D and 2D Tutorials and Resources

Newest Members

Hi, everyone! I've been working the past couple weeks at launching my new 3d printing shop over on Shapeways, and I've finally decided to launch it. It's called Differential Designs, and features many of the objects I've released as free modeling tutorials over the past several months, as well as a few new shapes I haven't tutorized yet. From now, until the new year, new products will be added to the store almost daily! Most of these products are first-time candidates to 3d printing on Shapeways, so I prefer to test them in beta releases. All this means is that these objects have not reached the minimum number of successful prints (80%) to be considered finalized designs yet. Every object that is listed in the store has passed the initial automated inspection routines upon upload to the Shapeways store, and I've already placed my own first-time order for the Trefoil Star Pendant, which has successfully passed the manual pre-printing inspections by Shapeways' staff, and is currently in production! I'm very excited to get my first successful 3d printed object from them, and will post photos of it when it arrives through the mail in about a week.

However, there's no way I can beta test all of the models in the store all by myself, and need your help, by simply purchasing an order for one of the models available on Differential Designs. My "mission" with this store overall is to explore and share simple, standard, polygonal modeling techniques with people who wish to create visually stunning objects for rendering or 3d printing. Unfortunately, not everyone interested in this type of thing is mathematically gifted to be able to create certain shapes through complex formulas, or algebraic scripting. With each successful 3d print, the overall strategies and methods of each technique are verified and proven to translate into real world printed objects. This information can be used to produce even more accurate and highly specific tutorials going forward, using Blender and 3dsmax. Having over an 80% successful beta run with any of these models will allow us to better understand issues related to potential printing hazards, like minimal wall thickness for certain materials, and how that relates to overall printing costs, as well as other issues that many newcomers to 3d printing are likely to face.

As mentioned, anything you order from my Shapeways shop has already passed every automated inspection Shapeways has, for stability and successful printing in the given materials. If for any reason, after your purchase, a beta product fails the manual inspection by the Shapeways team before printing, they will notify you, and you will NOT have to pay for it. I've done my best to keep all the pricing very reasonable. The average price for a 3d print in flexible plastic in my store is under $40, and there are several items that are in the $10 range. I've included an "X-mas ornament" version of the Classic Star Ball, which could also make a great Holiday gift, or to hang from your tree. If anyone decides to support the store by beta-testing any of the models (I know for sure the Trefoil Star Pendant will pass the manual inspection), I encourage you to contact me and let me know. Once you receive the model, be sure to take pics of it, and I'll put together a beta-testers video, featuring all your photos with credits, and put you in the list for other complimentary model gifts from me in the future. Thank you very much for your support! In addition to all the models, I'll be uploading to the Differential Designs store in the coming days, I will also continue to release new **freebies** before the holidays too, so keep an eye on my profile for that!

ScanTheWorld Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2015
Hiiiiii everyone,

I am an intern at My Mini Factory and I'm working on the Scan The World project, which aims to scan every sculpture ever created and ensure that they are downloadable and accessible to everyone. These scans can then be printed by anyone who has a 3D printer, meaning you can have your very own version of a Michelangelo in your living room or any of your favourite artists and sculptors.

 

But we need your help! There are thousands of sculptures all over the world, some more accessible than others. This is where you come in. To scan a sculpture is easier than you think. We simply need an overall image of the sculpture through a series of photographs. Tips on the types of images we need can be found via this link Scan the World. Once you have submitted your scan and a digital 3D model is created, the printing can begin.

This project has a huge amount of potential and has so many different uses and benefits including; bringing arts to the masses, education and increased exposure for artists. Become a part of this unique project and scan the sculptures in your world.

Check out our website to see what has already been printed. www.myminifactory.com/category…

I never have personally, but you got me curious, so I did a search.  Seems like only certain materials are approved by the FDA for use with 3d printing dentures.  Here's some more information, if you haven't yet seen it.

Say, I recently started seeing tutorials which isn't something I watch the group for. They are posted to journals so I turned off journals but I'm still seeing journal postings.

Any clue what's wrong?

Tutorials are now part of the group, and given a gallery folder.  Tutorials can be submitted to the appropriate gallery folder via a journal post.  I'm sorry if you have found this annoying, but you will also see the new render additions just the same, when there are any to show.  Tutorials are not added regularly, so you wouldn't or shouldn't see them appear often in your watchlist, if they annoy you.  However, there is no way to turn "off" the notification of new tutorial additions, unless you wish to unwatch the group, unfortunately.  Hopefully, this will not annoy you enough to go that far.  There will also be free downloadable models submitted as resources to that same new folder, so these will also appear in your watchlist, when and if someone adds them to the group.
