There is a new and pretty interesting add-on for blender allowing some paneling over quad faces. While this is only an add-on and no modifier changes can still be made afterwards.


Check out the thread!

Digging into Unity engine today switching from GameSalad to make the game true 3D and not 2.5D. Kinda scared.

And boy Unity loves HD disk space ...

This is a pretty interesting node based modeling approach:

+Eric Strebel Rhino and Grasshopper offers a pretty fantastic generative modeling. Sadly Grasshopper is limited by some of the Rhino tool problems.

Anybody has an idea if an SVG logo in Blender could be subdivided in a way so that the new geometry is suitable to bend/wrap around curved target surfaces? Sofar I still use high res alpha image maps because a flat poly sheet can be easily subdivided as needed so that you have enough vertices to project onto a surface while this approach always results into artifacts and issues with SVGs.

Also bending the SVG along a path results in artifacts.

+Todd McIntosh  single curves work well. The problem is with filled closed curves. Blender tessellates them in a way making it useless for bending. In my image here you you see that the surface the text image is on is smoothly subdivided into a fine grid giving you sufficient points to shrinkwarp.  I think this is just a technological issue in Blender when bending curve surfaces.

Autodesk is soon releasing a new Fusion 360 update which will include linked files and offers many sketch engine improvements.

They also come with a new 3D printing utility which seems to replace Meshmixer and other 3D printing software programs. Have to test it.

+Slawek Nezumi Good question - I dont think they will kill Meshmixer but keep it as what it was intended for a mesh mixing tool. And I am sure they all will remain free.

One would believe that Google the maker of Chrome and the new Photos web app allow you to drag over photos to select many - no you cannot. Enjoyed clicking 132 images to make an album after a trip to Traverse City in Michigan. Dear Google ... the maker of half backed products

Sorry for ranting but this just ticks me off

+Plasmasolutions Just found that out as well - in Google+ Photos you can just drag over the images and that means selecting only what you drag over. In the new Photos shift will select everything from the first to the last click and in-between! I will never understand Google. They seem to add remove features as they like without any real sense or logic behind it.

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.
