A Short Poem About the Ideal Digital Fabrication...
What would the optimal Digital Fabrication Lab be made of..? Perhaps of Lasers that splice, or 3D Printers real nice..? Maybe it should be an assembly of Machines that Sinter, Glue, and cure - to make objects Very precise and pure… Perchance it should use bits that are small, to build things most tall..? Or be conceivably conceived by a designer, to make a wedding-ring, or even a diner..? Could it...
25 (Free) 3D Modeling Applications
Technically, 3 Dimensions refers to objects that are constructed on three plans (X, Y and Z). The process of creating 3D graphics can be divided into three basic phases: 3D modeling, 3D animation and 3D rendering. Three dimensional (3D) computer graphics are widely used and they are almost too common to see anywhere, let it be movies, products designs, advertisements, etc. Although they are...
