Re: Need photography advice.

Re: Modo or Blender

What version of Modo are you using? I upgraded to V6.01 from V4.01, it was a pretty good upgrade for me, decent character animation tools, the sculpting tools are a little better behaved (nothing like 3Dcoat, but they offer quick alternatives for touchup, cleanup of a model). The painting and multir...

Re: 3d printing

There are many different kits on the market right now that allow you to make parts and models, either from your drawings or for parts for machines. I still has a bit to go to get to the point where you can manufacture small scale from your house or garage, but the technology is getting closer all of...

Re: FREE Unity Mobile Publishing!

Very good timing on this, thank you Dele. I was looking into an engine for an Android app I am thinking about, I could not find any info on a Unity version so UDK was the next idea. I'll play around in Unity now though :) thanks for the heads up and link.

The sculpting tools are good for getting general form but ZBrush and 3DCoat are far better. It's painting tools are good, but ZBrush and 3DCoat...
