<![CDATA[Personally, I find that the front top surface of automobiles are very hard to get correct.<br />
Certainly, there are plenty of people here that can do it right. I'm just trying to say that if its your first project, it may be a bit ambitious for you.<br />
<br />
When starting out, apply the KISS rule: Keep It Super Simple<br />
<br />
Your FIRST lessons should be in how to do a boolean join and a boolean subtract of two primitve objects, say a cube and a sphere.<br />
Then work to "slightly more complex" models from there. <grin>]]>stonysmith2013-02-09T14:39:26-00:00Re: Ambition 3d model for a new user

<![CDATA[Thanks for that.<br />
<br />
I'm researching the internet for a more simpler project.]]>fmulder482013-02-09T15:13:08-00:00Re: Ambition 3d model for a new user

<![CDATA[Start with basic tutorials and I recommend you first to learn to draw, search scribd for " Perspective made easy" Ernest N. .<br />
<br />
You must be able to draw a car so you can make it in 3D correctly or you end like 3 months of modeling.<br />
<br />
Either way learning to draw from books form Andrew Loomis , Ernest N. etc will help you kill the wasted time.<br />
<br />
Start with easy projects.]]>numarul72013-03-07T11:51:45-00:00Re: Ambition 3d model for a new user

<![CDATA[I am new at 3D printing too. I have been modeling with a Blender for a couple of months but all that I have been doing to reach my goal is :<br />
<br />
1) search tutorials how to model with a software that u want ( Google, Youtube, Vimeo..other experience) <br />
2) try to model simple things <br />
3) download other creators work and open it with software that u are working with and analyze them to understand how other create it .<br />
4) get a good understanding about 3D printing specifics (it is not so simple as it looks at first glance, but when u got the idea it flows fluently)<br />
5) try to send your model for an experts on 3D printing and get advice from them <br />
6) try to prepare your model for 3D printing and see what you get <img src="http://www.shapeways.com/forum/images/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif" border=0 alt="Smile"><br />
<br />
<br />
Good luck ! ]]>3DmodelerDy2013-03-08T09:39:16-00:00
