Wood Toy Train - Wip by lasaucisse Wood Toy Train - Wip :iconlasaucisse:lasaucisse 6 4 Sulaco spaceship by olve3d Sulaco spaceship :iconolve3d:olve3d 5 5 Marauder by Punakettu Marauder :iconpunakettu:Punakettu 313 232
As mentioned before in the previous blog (Be ready for PBR) this version is introducing a PBR render visualization, so there were some changes to material with the addition of new texture map support and new image tools on the Outliner window.

It was improved the gltf and collada importers and included the ply file importer (ASCII 1.0 only).
It was also added a experimental boolean functionality. It can still be bugged for some situations, but it's working in most the cases we tested. So, if you get any crash using it please report.

There were a lot of bug fixes. Please checkout the Wings 2.2.1 released announcement for more details.
The next version of Wings3D should bring us some new material settings as Dan (a.k.a dgud) shared with us in his thread Wings Materials.

So, be ready to use PBR textures/materials. The video bellow talks about the common textures types used with PBR (Base color, Metallic, Roughness, Ambient Occlusion and Normal should be the ones covered by Wings3D):

FreePBR, and CCO Textures are some of those sites full of PBR textures for free.

#wings3d, #PBR
Accord with dgud, there is another version in the pipe with new materials and lighting, but they decided to release
this one first.

What was added/Improved
- Improved importer, now it can more often create "objects" instead of separated faces when importing models;
- Implemented importer and exporter for GL transfer format (*.gltf|*.glb);
- Added support for (some) .dds image files;
- Added more texture types (currently not used).

What was fixed
- Fixed View/Show/Filter Textures Option previously only worked after restarting wings;
- Fixed (some) keyboard focus bugs;
- Fixed autosave, and other minor bugs.

About Wings3D

A group for fans of the nifty little free open source polygon modeling program that was inspired by Nendo and Mirai: Wings3D is an advanced subdivision modeler that is both powerful and easy to use.

The main rule is that the 3D models used in your images must be produced by using Wings3D software and that should be record in the image information box.

The software is all about modelling, so rendered images are cool, but if you could share a wire-frame version of your scene we would appreciate.

Hello everyone

I would like to learn wings 3D. Can you please suggest me some ressources for TOTAL beginners?

And remember that your first models surely won't look as you would wish, that happens to everyone at first, the only way to improve them is making more and more.

Welcome to the group and Wings3d. :)

As a "TOTAL beginner" I think you will need be a little patient and read/watch some tutorials before start producing something.

The first thing you need to learn is about the user interface (UI). You you can find a "long", but well done explanation in the first video in the article: An Introduction To Wings3D – Day 1 (by Jordy Lakiere)
From the official Wings3d site you can should take a look on this other: Finger Exercises To Get You Started
The Wings 3d User Manual is under development, but you can find some information there too.
The Wings3D Handbook (by oort). If you want to ask something about Wings3d usage you can do that in the Interface & Usage thread - you'll find some answers there too.

There is a interesting work from tkbd that we can use as reference card for Wings3D:  Dictionary of the Wings3D help

... and you can find a lot of video tutorials in YouTube. Checkout Wings3dChannel (by Fonte Boa).

After you get the way the Wings3D works you just will need to have practice, practice and more practice. ;)
