    Starship X

    Does anyone think it just a tiny bit funny, that one of the first privately designed rocket ships that could be used for interplanetary exploration, looks not like anything that came off a drafting board at NASA but instead looks like something right out of Flash Gordon? I always figured we'd have something like Project Orion (if you could ever get around the environmental concerns) but if we've got to use conventional chemical rockets for a while yet, at least we can look cool doing it.

  3. Thought that this was interesting, as one of the early examples of a GPU that wasn't from Silicon Graphics:

  5. Hmm, I could have sworn I moved my license from my old workstation to a new one, but I could be mistaken. It may have just been a new hard disk in the same workstation. I would go with Rob on this one, he is the more authoritative source. I'm not sure how the $299 version handles the node-locking, but unless you plan on hanging onto that system for ten years, you're better off with the annual subscription.
  6. AM is indeed capable of doing photorealistic texturing and rendering (please see the links that Itsjustme posted). There isn't too much problem migrating the subscription version from one system to another, you just need to make sure to back up the license file and copy that over to your fresh install. But you can't use AM on multiple systems that way, you'd need multiple licenses for that. And yes, reselling of licenses is frowned on, and while there isn't much to stop you from buying a copy off Ebay, you will run into the bugs that Robert mentioned, due to the way modern versions of Windows handle the old CD key system. Besides, don't you want the cool new features that have been developed in the many years since the last CD version was sold? AM is $80 a year for a web subscription license. That's less than a Netflix subscription. You could use it for 30 years and still pay less than you'd pay for a 3DS Max license from Autodesk I will say that while you can do mechanical modeling with AM, please be advised it is not an engineering app like CATIA or Pro/E, there are no solid modeling features or polygon tools. While you could use it for prototyping (it will output .STL files and can be used with 3D printers) that is not its main use case.

    Go AMD

    AMD has released drop-in 12 and 16 core socket 470 parts: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-ryzen-9-3950x-zen-2,39615.html Price I've heard on the 16 core part is $750. The 12 core AMD part for $499 beats anything 12 core and under in Intel's current lineup. They have also released their new Navi graphics: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-navi-radeon_rx_5700_xt-rx_5700-details,39608.html
  12. Since there are some people on here that have a casual or not-so casual interest in the nuts and bolts of CG, I thought I would post this Computer Graphics bundle from Humble Bundle. There are several good books in the bundle, easily worth the $15 price to get all of them: https://www.humblebundle.com/books/computer-graphics-crc-press-books?hmb_source=navbar&hmb_medium=product_tile&hmb_campaign=tile_index_5
  13. What sorcery is this? When was this implemented?
  14. I found this amusing:
