Hi,

I hope it's okay if I'm doing a little bit of advertising for a free tool I've created the last two years. I always found it quite hard to create simple objects like coins with powerful 3d applications like blender. Especially if photos and drawings are involved. I tried to make the workflow as simple as possible. It would be great if you could check it out. some tutorials are also available on youtube.

video tutorials:

http://www.extrudy.net/resources/eXtrudy_0.9.0.15864.zip (Zip)

requirements:

Microsoft Windows XP or higher
OpenGL compatible graphics card
Screen resolution 1280x1024 or higher
1 Gigabyte RAM

best regards,

Hendrik

That's pretty darn cool! Great work! Surprised

I was messing with it and made this yen yang heart pendant in about 10 minutes.

The selecting the back function to go to the next step got confusing since I didn't use the instructions, but I was able to figure it out. I could see how one could make very elaborate designs using this! I just used the default graphics, but if I were to spend some time with this I could make something off the charts without hardly any expenditure of effort! Very Happy






It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.

Thanks a lot for trying it out. I'm sure we still have a lot of possibilities for improvements Smile. I guess you would only need the "back" button in case you want to cancel a workflow. Otherwise the "next" button will be fine.

Here is a new object I've created this evening. It's a pendant inspired by the sky disk of Nebra which is more than 3600 years old (Bronze Age).

It's me again. Today I saw some drawings of the sun in renaissance style. I have to admit that my version is not that good, but I tried to make it 3d anyway.

Here is the youtube video how I did it

This is one of my first pendants I've created with eXtrudy.

Another gift idea which could be done with eXtrudy. Create a QR code from the name of a friend or relative and engrave it into a keyring pendant. Printed in stainless steel.

The birthday pendant for my girlfriend arrived. Drafts were done in Inkscape and the 3d model in eXtrudy. This time it's in silver and the printing resolution seems to be much higher than in the stainless steel versions. The birthdate is in binary code - could you guess it?

This evening I've played around with ornaments from Alphonse Mucha. Some of them are quite suitable for turning them into 3d object with eXtrudy.

This pendant refers to Gustav Klimt's painting "The tree of life". The original image has been modified in Photoline and was then turned into 3d with eXtrudy in a few minutes.

There is a new tutorial on youtube that shows how to create your own christmas tree decoration based on a pen and paper drawing and/or some illustrations from the web. It took less than 10 minutes in eXtrudy and is ready for 3d printing:

With the new "bas-relief mode" you have a lot of new possibilities!

- Allow arbirary surface profiles for decorations (e.g. images from file)
- Several new parameters to adjust decoration depth (cutoff, scale etc.)
- Better memory usage (allows higher mesh resolutions)
- several bugfixes

Have fun :-)
