Title: Autodesk 123D and 3D Art
Post by: Dudeman313 on April 21, 2016, 11:45:42 pm
So, now there are a whole bunch of awesome tools you can use to model and create 3D printed stuff.
Autodesk 123D provides a whole lot of these services.

Check them out here: http://www.123dapp.com/

But I'm trying to use 123D Catch (http://www.123dapp.com/catch), which generates 3D models from a collection of 2D pictures, to create a 3D :walrii: . So far, it hasn't been able to work. Anyone want to try it with these three pictures?

Since 123D Catch is meant for creating 3D models from real-world objects, I really doubt that you could ever get it to work with hand-made sprites, especially since the result usually isn't that great already for real objects that (obviously) are entirely correct when it comes to shading and perspective.

I think this would definitively be difficult for sprites indeed. I tried finding such tool myself, to no avail. It's probably missing too much data to work with.

A 3D :walrii: would look cute, though.

Image processing software currently doesn't even come close to what the human brain can in terms of possibilities and quality, so generally if something like that is hard to do for you, it's nearly impossible to get a computer to do it.

What if, for example, someone made the frames above, but in alpha channel mode? So for example he would make the sides that needs relief lighter and the rest darker. But again, doing those frames could probably be more effort than just making the 3D voxel sprite from scratch.

Also I think a 3D voxel walrus would look better if rendered by a 3D voxel software that does advanced shading. Else it can be hard to distinguish parts.

Pretty cool they're releasing this stuff, i remember autocad being pretty expensive. This probably has less features though

Oh, okay. Guess I'll just try to find a Voxel Art tool I can use on my computer that can work with Open GL 1.1. :P

I am sure there are some, considering voxel stuff isn't that demanding (after all, there's a voxel demo for the TI-89)

I've looked and found none so far. :(

That sucks. Software makers tend to not have older computers in mind it seems :/

Well, I guess I'll just have to keep looking.  :-|

I think you should instead try to get a new computer, because I am sure that people making softwares would just tell you to upgrade to a newer computer.

The only computer I'll be getting(if at all) will be that Lenovo Thinkpad x61s.  <_<

They won't change your computer until you move out from home? O.O Also welcome back :3=

123D is what I use for designing parts fro my 3D printer. But for more complex stuff (possibly a non pixilly walrii) I would make it up in blender

Thanks. I had my computer confiscated for a bit, but now I'm back in school. :) :w00t:

Thanks. I'll check it out.

Ah I see now. I thought your internet access had finally bit the dust and permanently. I mean, I thought you were caught on CW and that they had now sold the computer like they did with your TI-84+CE.

Post by: Dudeman313 on May 04, 2016, 01:09:22 am
Nah, it's just hidden somewhere in my mom's room, and I have to use our desktop computer that's connected to a 55 inch Vizio 4K UHD display.
So basically, I can only access CW from school(gotta be careful) and home(when i'm home alone). But I also got access to my Nokia E63 again, so I can post for as long as the battery lasts wherever there's Wi-fi. :)

That sucks, you could get a raspberry pi and a Wi-Fi dongle or whatever, I am sure there is some way you could convince your parents about that. Then you could buy a touch screen for it...

But I don't know if that would work
Title: Re: Autodesk 123D and 3D Art
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 05, 2016, 11:26:11 pm
An RPi is often used for coding and entertainment. I doubt it would convince them.

Yeah, I was wondering about that. My parents are for education so they are a sucker for that stuff xD
Title: Re: Autodesk 123D and 3D Art
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 06, 2016, 04:28:18 pm
@alext by being for education do you mean they are against game development and stuff?
Title: Re: Autodesk 123D and 3D Art
Post by: alexgt on May 06, 2016, 05:12:22 pm
No, they just like me to "learn" stuff so if something helps me "learn" they are usually all for it :P. They actually like me developing games and stuff...
Title: Re: Autodesk 123D and 3D Art

Oh ok phew. That's actually awesome then. :)

Yeah, I am very glad my parents are mostly cool :P

Post by: Dudeman313 on June 07, 2016, 11:45:11 pm
I'd sure be great if my parents let me do that kind of stuff, but the problem is that I usually am using time I don't have(like now) to code and develop, so it makes sense why my mom disallows it.

Oh, well then if you are coding/gaming/browsing game sites instead of studying all the time then I can probably understand why they would restrict your computer usage Dudeman313. My main issue with parents is when a student is never procastinating, yet his parents still won't let him code, game or visit his favorite sites simply based on conservative views against technology/friends or religious motives.
