3D Print your Star Fleet
Dolf Veenvliet aka macouno of Enotforms fame has been working on some fun tools to generate 3D forms for the 3D Cad illiterate. Under the ShapeWright moniker Dolf has produced a random space ship generator entitled ShipWright that generates unique configurations of space ships ready for 3D printing with Shapeways… Yeah, awesome.. You can also have a personalized Space Ship generated by your name, or whatever text you enter into the build system… Yeah, super awesome. ShipWright is another awesome project that uses the Shapeways API to upload 3D files to Shapeways, if you have a project to generate 3D forms take a look at the API documentation to see how you can send the files to Shapeways for 3D printing too.
The original version generated space ships based on the nicknames of all Blender 3D coders The code is based on the entoforms scripts… which you can find here: http://www.entoforms.com
