    Hi, my name is Grant and I live in the SF Bay Area. I'm a cartoonist, animator, and 3D artist and I love toys and sculptures so with the help of Shapeways and you all in the 3D printing community I plan on making lots of crazy things!

    Welcome Grant! What software will you be using for your cartoons and sculptures?

    Always start with pencil and paper, then for animating I will use Plastic Animation Paper (download for free!) and a Wacom tablet. For 3D modelling, I use Lightwave with the occasional light dusting of Zbrush.

    I meant for 3D stuff :p, although you can scan your paper for image popper. I've been playing with sculptris the last week (owned by the makers of zbrush) And loving it so far.

    Thanks! That looks great (I'll try it out on a model I want to print in full color sandstone!)
