  1. you know my daughter keeps wanting to get into screen writing and asking for "how to's". I keep telling her to just write..write the story get it on paper, tell it feel it. When the characters are doing the talking then you have the story. Then and only then should you format it into script form.
  2. First off, Roger has already risen to the challenge of getting these to me, but I'm happy to give pointers on modeling to 3D printing in general. The first thing to know is that A:M's measurements are off by a factor of 100% when it comes to slicers. Not a big deal since you don't loose too much detail when scaling up. The biggest pit fall is patches facing in not out. That creates gaps in the model. Also, if your model is meant to be hollow, then you have to model in inner and outer wall and make sure all splines are closed off. I've run into weird prints with 5 point patches as well. You don
  3. Roger, the final print wouldn't be more 4 inches. Not looking to go too crazy on it.
  4. as the saying goes, can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen. This is the life of a consultant, it does have its perks, and the pay is better than if I was simply working in a cubicle somewhere. Which does give some extra cash for , you know, someone making a rocky and bullwinkle model (hint hint)!
  5. I'm totally exhausted, but have at least another month of this B.S. Sad thing is the company I work for is getting bought out by a silicon valley company. No idea what the next few months will look like. And, to add insult to injury, anything I work over 40 hours doesn't come to me, it get zero. And, I have lost all of my vacation time for the second year running. Sort of makes me wonder why I bother.
  6. as far as A:M is concerned I haven't been able to work on anything. As far as work, I have been on a project building a health information exchange application in amazon cloud for a client company in the mid-west. It's been an all-out effort since mid-july with a go-live of next week. 120 hours a week, 7 days a week, no time off for good behavior. I'm ready for a break!
  7. Well it is good to be back. Been way way too long, but work has had me flat out since July and will continue to do so thru the end of the year. I hadn't done anything with Papa Bear, contests (who won the Prehistoric one anyways?) or 3d printing. Now, I have a request. I have a good friend who really is into Rocky and Bullwinkle, and has requested a 3d print of the two of them. I don't have nearly enough time to model them, print and finish them before the final years holiday, so I'm wondering if anyone has a model or two kicking around? If not, does anyone have the bandwidth to do s
  8. Or mine..same deal. Mice, nob and tube. I spend more on pest control than I do electricity!
  9. Learn something new every day! I can't even remember how many hints I have forgotten that I could put in that dialogue. Makes me want to get back to animating just so I can use it!
  10. here's the same model with a tube stitched in. The remaining open faces simply refuse to accept a five point patch.test.mdl
  11. In using A:M to create 3D models I've run into persistent challenges when trying to create a hole thru a solid body. For instance, for my seagull I need to model a servo mount with mechanical mount points for the servo. I want to model in screw holes so I'm not stuck with drilling and tapping after a print is done. Normally I would model a cylinder and stitch that into the model, but that always comes with messy splining, or a bunch of 5 point patches half of which can't be closed. So, I thought what about a boolean cutter? Could I use that to place a hole where I need it, then will the stl ex
  12. Cura hates internal patches as well as normals facing the wrong way. I've also waged war with five point patches misbehaving when exported to STL. One thing you can try is to repair the mesh in an app like netfab. It can do wonders with STL files from questionable splining ( like mine). I've had to go the hard way and click on the internal spline, break it and delete. One at a time, over and over.
  13. A retired super hero gone to pasture, a la the Incredibles. Very cool.
  14. Absolutely effing fantastic!
