What software did you make this with?
I have a feeling it's gonna show a lot of polygons when printed.
Can you render a faceted (non-smooth) view?

Sketchup.
Currently also exploring 3D-Coat too - but it crashes on me to many times.

What do you mean?

You can click on "view in 3D" to see the model without the uv mapping.
It has over 200k polygons. The pics are not renders but an actual screen shot by cortona3D viewer for firefox in real time.

Oh, and you're probably just using a wrong uvw channel, so it's not exporting the right uvw coordinates.

like i said i tested my file on several software and it shows up good as the original.

just now i uploaded version 3 using rhino wrl "format" - hope it will be good.




It seems figurine especially fantasy ones are in great demand ..

A Microsoft VP of the xbox division left 6 figures salary and bonuses to pursue his idea - 3D printing figurines in full color for all..

His business seems to be doing very good with figurines 14cm high selling at $130 in US and 130 euro in EU.

Now all we need is shapeways offering glass domes with every figurines and we'll start a new niche here Wink

You mean those WoW figures?
They sell because it's WoW.

At that price you can only really expect sales when you're working with fairly well known IP, or if you have a personal fanclub...

I'm kind of worrying that it might be a bit too difficult to get anything decently done here in Full Color Sandstone, since they seem to be somewhat excessively strict on their 3mm wall rule...
http://dl.kaetemi.be/shapeways/33013_93588_199906_v1_s1a.wrl.jpg

Anyways, I assume your model isn't using the first UVW channel, and Shapeways just assumes that is the UVW channel for the texture. Shapeways pretty much ignores anything in your material aside from the texture name, afaik.

I work here
I remember someone asking about the uv mapping of a cube, but I can't remember the outcome. I know it printed right but don't know if they had to modify the map... If I run across it I'll link it.

That pic attachment is ridicules , no offense to no one but it looks like the work of a new employee at CS.
What you have on that pic is NOT a wall but detail - contact Kevin he will aprove your model (it happened to me too)


Yes wow are wow... - still if you don't test test test you wont know..

Yeah, it's sillly, it's not really an issue for me to boost that up to 3mm, the bigger problem is that I have to repeatedly reorder it just to wait two days and additionally a weekend and see it canceled again for yet another reason.
I'm currently mailing with Maartje for this (was mailing with Kevin last week though). From the way they talk, it doesn't seem to be the CS guys canceling it, but some other 'colleagues' somewhere, and that the CS just relays their cancelation reason?
It certainly doesn't help in getting things ready in time.

Just so you know, apparently it's no longer allowed to trap unbinded material powder in full color sandstone prints, because supposedly the wax doesn't dry properly and the print will break.
Although, I do have a color printed figurine here that has material trapped, was printed without any delays, and is strong enough that I can even bend the legs by 1mm without any sign of anything breaking.
You now have to provide holes of about 5mm at least.

Maartje is senior so it very very weird - if every detail on a 3 mm wall has to be also 3 mm we can forget about full color organic models or figurines.

Its ridiculous .



Anyway the 3rd upload has finished but the UV mapping is still wrong.

Shapeways server put the fire pic right on ... the spot Laughing vs the original:

I don't know why.... this time the wrl file was saved from rhino, last time it was from meshlab.

If IT guys read this please advise.

Well, it seems to be decided by the "colleagues at the printer department" what is printable and what not. I'm waiting for some more information.

Have you tried trough obj format? (not sure if that's uploadable here though, but you could try exporting trough obj and back to wrl, since obj discards secondary uvw information iirc).
Also nothing to do with flipped/mirrored texture coordinate system?

Personally I would not put this for sale because it is obviously the Deathwing from WoW in his human form. If you are going to print one for personal use I believe thats fine. but just to save you copyright hassle I´d leave it at that.

Also some text indicating who´s original character this is will always help your case.

Aside from faulty collapsed UV seems, and some cut off pieces, just about exactly the same.

Uhuh... here... over 20 test items with trapped material and "wax" is dry... they even resist drops (if you ignore the scratches or any small dents caused by impacts against other sharp things, which some varnishing protects against). And they are impossible to make with 5mm holes, so that is probably the final blow into the project (color resolution and random yellow tinting pushed it into the back seat time ago), price was already tight. !_!

really too bad..


I browsed the galleries.. there isn't much serious work done in full color sandstone.

Its time to shake up the dormant creativity for this material.

After Googling it up seriously i see it is a character from a game called WoW . (never played it - i guess i'm too old Very Happy )

Obviously it wont be for sale - still, i will keep on exploring and learning this interesting area of UV mapping and full color printing.

Finally ..!

After extensive R&D i now have a work flow and techniques to model in Sketchup with primitives (also known as cube modeling)
then use Texture projection and finally some magic.. Wink transferring the model into an organic shape with the texture intact ! (for the most part - minor 0.2-0.5mm artifacts)



Proof of concept - Cube Modeling - Texture Projection and transferring to organic shape with Sketchup

http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j322/dizingof/WarMammoth.gif




I suspect the spikes, thou over 3mm in the base, could fail this for printing as their pointy head are less then 3mm but if not i'll have to chop them and send to print.

(Of course not for sale)

This is VERY encouraging to me. My biggest issues with the process here at Shapeways are 1) my lack of 3D modeling skill and 2) the lack of detail (physical roughness) of the end products. Now, I'm okay at 3D, but I've been a professional illustrator and graphics guy for decades... this makes it appear as though I could design and texture miniatures that would be quite passable. Still, I would really like a smoother surface in the end.

Great work!

Well you can get a smooth full color textured print if you spray the model with clear acrylic or epoxy spray.

I sent the Mammoth model to print yesterday - very excited to see how it will turn out.

I hope the wax shapeways use wont kill the shades and brightness of the model.

I'll be watching in rapt anticipation, too! It's always nice when someone enjoys doing your research for you at their own expense! (In other words, I'm glad you've got the time, talent, and capital to do something I would like to do!)

In time you'll see we all actually do that Wink


Here is another model made with same techniques.

You start with cubes (primitives) modeling then apply a projected texture on either large selected areas or on an individual face:

index.php?t=getfile&id=6819&private=0


The end result is an organic shape with the texture (for the most parts) in place, with no need for that texture-unwrapping process which i find as too time consuming and definitely not an easy on a high poly organic shape.

i keep evolving Wink
trains are a booming market,, because of this way no mass production (expensive) is needed!

So i do enough research! on how to get complete trains running!

-

it's just that you are using a model that is from someone else (can't say you are not allowed!)
then you remove the teeth,,,
go to upload and press yes on " This design is my own work *"

and then sell it

can't say illigal,, but i'm not sure if this is the right way to do stuff!

Downloading models and cutting out some pieces is not extensive research, certainly doesn't push boundaries, and won't get anyone anywhere at all.
Furthermore, it is an insult towards those designers who actually sculpt their sculptures themselves, as well as towards the authors whose work you blatantly rip off.
And lastly, it's plain illegal to A) commercially exploit a copyrighted work without authorization, and B) to use trademarks and designs without permission.

I'm sick and tired of you guys picking on me on very post where i blob on my latest research and on new modeling methods.

It's been said a million times yet you still eat your heart out again and again - using Sketchup repository models for a base to a new thing is MOST WELCOME by the public license and by Shapeways.

You don't like it ? write a complaint to shapeways.


As for copyright infringements claims, next time i need a lawyer i'll be sure to contact you... please pm me your law firm card.


Bottom line -leave it to Shapeways legal department to sort out what is done right or wrong and how to correct it.

So i suggest you guys cheel.


If you don't have nothing better to do pass out on my threads it will do good to your health.

I totally agree with Kaetemi and i think its obvious you did not model these yourself.

there is a program that allows users to view models from the game and edit them to some extent. there is also a export function so they can be edited in a 3d-program including textures. This program has been made for people that make machinima videos with them mainly.

You seem to be missing the point.
A lot of items on there are uploaded in the google warehouse by people without the authorization of the copyright owner. You yourself are pretty much required to do some quick research to see if the models you make use of have been rightfully uploaded there. It's not ok to just assume that it's ok to use just because someone happens to have uploaded it there, especially not if you can find in ten seconds who the actual copyright owner is.
Secondly, it is only common sense to ask the author for permission, to verify the intentions of his upload, not everyone considers that someone may exploit their models for 3d printing, and give some rightful attribution to your sources, which practically did 99% of the work.

you really don't care that your earning money for the work from somebody else?

but the thing that makes me the most sad,, is that present the models here on the forum like these are made by yourself...

I don't get it?

After extensive R&D i now have a work flow and techniques to model in Sketchup with primitives (also known as cube modeling)
then use Texture projection and finally some magic.. Wink transferring the model into an organic shape with the texture intact ! (for the most part - minor 0.2-0.5mm artifacts)

Proof of concept - Cube Modeling - Texture Projection and transferring to organic shape with Sketchup

Here's a mammoth from WoW

(Note: the minute difference are apparently based on game progress/weaponry/customisation in the game?)

Here is another model made with same techniques.
You start with cubes (primitives) modeling then apply a projected texture on either large selected areas or on an individual face:

The model from Google as linked by Jettuh:

And a screenshot from the game WoW:

Taking an existing low-poly model created by some-one else, smooth it with keeping textures intact, is not exactly box -modeling..

The silly thing is, had you presented this as "Hey I downloaded/found this cool model in the repository, I smoothed it and made it printable."
You probably wouldn't have offended so many people.

However, it is still not allowed to use copyrighted material, even when someone else decided to upload it to a public domain repository.
It's your responsibility to R&D if a model is public domain or not.
