Re: Modeling and Rendering Floppy Materials

Marvelous designer could work, you would have to make a pattern first, then simulate the floppiness and export as a mesh,there's a free trial.

Re: Went looking for design employment advice...

Unfortunately, I'm 40 and way past the "starting over" thing. Starting over has this big weight and stigma attached to it, a factory that used to build a product that no longer sells can retool and be successful, something that is very common and normal. The age part is also subjective, I...

Re: Went looking for design employment advice...

- It seems you have a very pessimistic outlook and attitutde which for all I know is completely justified.Venting here or in other ways might feel good in the short term, but it might also be turning away potential clients, jobs, mudding your perspective and feeding a bad loop, it also does very lit...

Re: Connecting Soft goods to Plastic pieces

Several ways come to mind,
    You could make some piping at the top edges and now you can slide hardware material to attach to your frame.
    You can use grommets.
    Velcro.
    Depending on how thick your plastic is you can even sew it trough.

Re: Material for inflatable toy system

Marvelous Designer has this feature where you can inflate (pressurize) your patterns after you've sewn them, just be careful with the stitching (I think inflatables are heat welded but same concept ) since some of it does not translate 1 to 1 to real life, but will give you a head start on the final...

Re: 3D Patterns on Compound Surfaces/Solids

cadjunkie wrote:.why would you need it for both Mac and PC?


Mostly convenience, I use both platforms roughly the same, I've thought about going full Mac, but there are still a few things I prefer and need doing on a PC, mostly non design things like web- app development & coding.

Re: 3D Patterns on Compound Surfaces/Solids

@Keno: not sure what you mean by step up, zBrush is only $800. So if anything I do believe that you'd only have to pay the difference in price in order to upgrade. BUT this could be done in zBrush Core. @cadjunkie: They knock out $100 of the price if you have zBrush Core, so $700 to upgrade. It is ...

I have the cheap version ( Z Brush Core ) which is very limited (this feature, useful brushes and features are missing) , the step up is around $700-$1,100 :(

Re: 3D Patterns on Compound Surfaces/Solids

To expand on my answer here's a quick experiment with Z Brush and Rhino: Make/ Import a bottle model from Rhino, using a mask block the space where you would hold it with your hand and manually sculpt some grooves: zBrushTexturing.jpg While the bulk of z Brush is devoted to you sculpting with a virt...

Re: 3D Patterns on Compound Surfaces/Solids

+1 on grasshopper,for what is worth this sort of of texturing is trivial on Z brush, the problem is that you lose control since you are using a brush and creating any type of geometric shape is really difficult on the entry level version, I've had some success by importing geometric shapes, then app...

Crap I just left Santa Barbara, go to the French Press and Handlebar if you like coffee.
