123d Make now for Pc....

Hello,
some of you who do 3d may know,
http://www.123dapp.com/make#download-make
This programme has interesting uses for sculpture work to convert 3d graphic forms into real materials without going to 3d printers.
I also like the constructivist lattice look as well.

Here is a quick 'amoeba' shape I tested in it imported from 3DS Max 2012.

Thanks for this, James!
I played around with it a bit, and while the peripherals/nav is a bit awkward, but the idea is surprisingly practical.

Have you "printed" anything out just yet?

Hi not yet, I am going to do something in July but I may use Pepakura as the form suits that more.

As with this and Pepakura, the model could then be hardened and used to cast in other materials. I saw a youtube clip where someone put fibreglass and resin over their model to harden it.

I am also getting something printed through shapeways for a project but they told me the legs were too thin so I have to order in another material.

Some experiments using 123dCatch, Autodesk's partner software.
This is a street scene, I have also tried to capture Plasticine shapes I made.
I will also try to do some in the future with wooden struts etc etc.

From my blog entry I discuss the potential for sculpture/artwork that these technologies are capable of-
