    Hey guys,

    I found this fantastic tutorial - - from shapeways

    Are there any step by step instructions anywhere? I'm using Blender 2.5 and the tutorial is in 2.49 (I think) so I'm already confused.

    This would be such a fantastic tutorial for newbies!!! Shapeways I'm sure you would generate tons of business from this, I've spent weeks searching on google, lots of people are looking for a tutorial like this.

    I'm stuck at the set material 'map input', how do you do this in 2.5?

    Anyone have an idiots guide to this? :blush:

    Hey Cadalu,

    I will defer to Bart, our Blender expert, he is setting up for Dutch Design Week right now but I will flag this for him to answer...

    Thanks and good luck!!!

    Thanks Duann. I was just hoping there were instructions somewhere but I hunted around and there's not. I'd love to see more SW for dummies, or modeling for complete morons or something like that.

    Sigh, I need an emoticon wearing a dunce hat... Blender and my brain still don't mix!

    Hi Cadalu,

    I think we'd have to re-do the entire tutorial for Blender 2.5 (or rather 2.60 by now!). I don't have a quick answer, sorry.

    The IRC channels at #Blender or #Blenderchat on Freenode is a great spot to get blender modelling help, or in your case help translate 2.49 techniques into 2.5 series of blender.
