MakerBot will no longer make its own 3D printers.

This is bad news for the local workers but my experience with MakerBot was overwhelmingly negative. Our new Ultimakers kill the MB. Period.
MakerBot has announced that it will no longer manufacture its own hardware. Over the course of the next six months, the company will transition the building of its 3D printers and other products to...

Blenders PBR Viewport rendering makes good progress. We can now also have reflections and refractions in realtime.

Enjoy!

I was using plugin for IES lights, but I much prefer this. Very cool.

I created some intro videos for how to set-up, configure brushes, and use PaintStorm for digital industrial design rendering.

In my opinion this is one of the best commercial drawing tools currently there for iOS, OS X and Windows for a very low price tag.

Enjoy!


PS: Krita of course is great as well!

The makers of Deus Ex HR got inspired by VW for their near future concept car, and it seems to me Toyota got a bit inspired by that in-game car.

As it seems the new Intel i7 CPU comes with 10 cores making maybe the Xeon bases systems less attractive for power users. AMD also might have something interesting with their new CPU design which is supposed to have up to 32 cores.

But judging how the old 6 core CPUs were steamrolled by Intel i5 CPUs I am a tick more careful.

Still pretty great news!

It's (pretty much) official: Intel's Core i7-6950X will feature a whopping 10 cores.

+Trey Carpenter well two CPU is not equal one CPU with two cores. But we do not have 10 CPU boards so a 10 core CPU is still better than a fast single core or such.

This is a quite humorous comparison, stating that todays web pages on average are bigger than the old game Doom after being installed.


http://www.pcworld.com/article/3060622/internet/the-average-web-page-is-now-larger-doom.html
Web page bloat reaches an embarrassing milestone: The Doom installer is smaller.

MS finally released their own new code editor. Nicely this one runs on Mac Win and Linux so one app for all in case you switch OSs like I do on a daily basis.

I have test this for my Blender Add-on development as this seems to make sense to use.

Anybody tested it already? Any idea how it stacks against Sublime Text?

Now this is a curious either genius or disastrous decision: Buy Joop fashion at an Aldi discount supermarket store.

Joop and Aldi joined to sell their products at selected Aldi stores.

Crazy!

Campell is working on freehand 3d Sketching in Blender so you can use the path tools and draw it over existing 3D surfaces! Pretty fantastic and will be immensely useful furniture and upholstery/fabric work.

Are you guys happy with the Google Photo UI and function? Since I have an iPadPro I use the photo app there and today I wanted to sort the images I did on my last trip to Mexico and I found that the web interface of Google Photos makes it really hard to find photos, see photos, and on top adding more photos than 500 is not possible at once. So I needed often to scroll back to the last date where I stop inserting images from. Really annoying.

I pay for the Google storage but Apples iCloud is not that much more expensive and I find the UI and functionality is actually more thought out.

What do you think?

Be careful about this place and Groupon. They do not honor the fine-print on the Groupon website. I called twice to make an appointment and was told different stories about why they do not accept a Groupon deal on the weekend. If one does not want to honor deals, then do not simply offer deals. Thats borderline scam. Fortunately Groupon gave me a full refund and I will never recommend Belle Sante Spa to anybody.

I went to Blufin Sushi few times - their Sushi is so so but the Woods have no other option. If you go to a real Sushi place you will notice the difference. But taste can be subjective. What most rubs me with the place and this is why I will never eat there agin, is the arrogance and rudeness of the staff - specifically with Groupon. First time we asked if we could use it for lunch while dining in and we were told it is accepted. We ordered few things and some lunch specials. And afterwards we were lectured that lunch specials are excluded from the lunch Groupon deal. Nice. Second time I over the phone ask if I could place an order for pick up and use the lunch Groupon. I arrive mention the Groupon and rudely being lectured again that Groupon are only accepted for dine in. The person I talked to over the phone joined the conversation explaining that she thought it was ok and was quickly informed as well that she made a mistake. Instead of saying sorry for the misunderstanding and simply making an exception in this case because I informed myself via the phone before placing the order, the employe insisted on not accepting the Groupon deal. Customer service 101 fail. I simply turned around, went to Kroger and enjoyed a 1/3 cheaper Sushi which actually tasted surprisingly good for a grocery store - I am not sure if the Sushi was in the end not even better than BluFin anyway. One might think come on Kroger? Make a taste test. Some good Kroger rolls vs BluFin rolls. BluFin might look nice but flavor wise it lacks. And in the future I will rather give my money to the quite polite and friendly staff at my Kroger store than the arrogant and snoddy brat of a server at BluFin. I must say eel Sushi from Kroger is actually pretty spot on.
