    I live in Karlsruhe, Germany and studied Media Engineering at the UAS in Offenburg. Today I am working for a middle-size fullservice media-agency in the web, animation and video-department.

    I like to do all kinds of artwork and creative things in general. I write, paint, make music and I like to animate and model (in A:M and with physical materials). But I although like to develope in PHP, JavaScript, CSS, HTML and sometimes in Java and ActionScript.

    I am using A:M since version 8.0(2000), and keept it up to date each year. So I am now using A:M 18. As you can see I am quite happy with A:M.

  1. Thanks for your help on the 3-D printing question. I wanted to thank you on my posting, but somehow it ended up in archives 6 hours after it was posted, and I could not add any comment. Hope everything is going well for you. I'm trying to model Venice, Italy (actually St. Mark's Square and its immediate vicinity) for a segment of my story. There is a lot of intricate detail in the decoration on the buildings. A:M is rather difficult to use to model such detail. Anyway, that's what I have been doing for the last couple of months. You know a lot about A:M, and you also seem to use A:M in conjunction with other programs. How do you know how to combine programs and what will fit together?

    3-D Printing

    Never heard of NEG-files... A:M produces STL, which is a standard 3d printing format. Maybe NEG is a properitary file format of the specific printer, but in most cases those software should be able to read STLs anyway. Best regards *Fuchur*

    Forum tabs vs. screen width

    That is called responsive / adaptive design and seems like the designer of the forum templates thought that would be a good idea... Not sure why exactly... Best regards *Fuchur*

    Good Choice For a Laptop to Run A:M

    I think this one would be pretty much perfect for A:M: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834850877 But it costs $499. This is pretty good too and costs $389.99: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAA0S7XB3555 Refurbished once like this one are pretty nice too (but this is not the most modern technique... I own a similar HP Elite Book 745 and it is pretty good too): https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834269117R It costs $271.99. Still I do not really like buying refurbished stuff and it just is an older technique. I would not recommend going below those prices... everything that comes below that is just not meant to be used for graphic software. All of the above a AMD based. If you really want to go with Intel (especially for the Ryzen once there is no good reason for that if you ask me), you might consider one of those: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAEYA8M52010&ignorebbr=1 (costs $569.99) In general look for a laptop which includes an AMD A10-APU (or better), AMD Ryzen (close to anything will do here) or an Intel-Chip (i5, i7) but WITH a dedicated graphic card from Nvidia or AMD. The included graphics of Intel are really worse than anything else. Go with a SSD (not really important which one) and 8 GB of RAM (or more). Best regards *Fuchur*

    Good Choice For a Laptop to Run A:M

    Hey Mark, do you plan on carrying it around or do you want a desktop replacement (not very long battery time but pretty powerful for a laptop)? If you plan on staying at one place with it, I'd say you might want to consider a desktop instead (in general you get more performance and upgradeable parts with a desktop, but of cause you loose the portability with it, even the one of a desktop replacement) Do you have a price point you thought about? Is it more $400, $600 or $800? Do you want a 14", 15.6", 17" or even 19" device? Best regards *Fuchur*

  7. Hey everybody, I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas with a small little card created in A:M :). Best regards, have a nice celebration and keep on splining *Fuchur*

    Grandma ate your contest image?

    I would have liked to participate, but I just could not find the time at this time of the year. My job was a nightmare right before christmas this time. Maybe next time... Best regards *Fuchur*

    How to shift Image plane in A:M-camera

    Not exactly sure what the difference to moving the camera on local axis is? For that you just go to the top view, press 1, 2 or 3 (standing for x, y, z axis) and move around. The other option is, that you go to camera view, press CTRL and the middle mouse button and move the mouse around if you want to do it in the viewport. However this is not that precise. Best regards *Fuchur*
  10. Pretty damn cool indeed :). That is really a very high and precise quality. Best regards *Fuchur*
  11. In short... yes. Stay with the Windows version ;). Welcome back to the show and sounds like a lot of fun... Resin 3d printers are a little too expensive for me till now (I love them so) but I'd really like to hear more about your work with them :). Best regards *Fuchur*

    Good clear plastic material?

    Just a small try... maybe of use. Best regards *Fuchur* PS: Keep in mind: A material without a surrounding is always pretty boring. Give it something to work with like lights, shadows, reflecting objects, etc. cap.prj

    About updates!

    Updates in A:M are always the whole installer again. So yes, it will contain the previous changes too. (at least if they are still valid in that version) Best regards *Fuchur*

    Needing some help

    Sounds like a permission problem to me. I am not a Mac guy, but I know that there are some kind of permission settings for programs, right? I can only set you on that track and can't really tell you how to do it, but maybe it already helps? Otherwise someone else here is surely going to know how to do it. Best regards *Fuchur*
