I think I made a dog house in Wings once by following a tutorial. But, other than that, Ger's right, I only use the mirror modeler. Too bad Thomas Pemberton doesn't post over here anymore, he switched to Wings a year or two ago and his work in it has been fantastic, IMO.

Sounds interesting EG180, I should look around for his works. Anyways, its nice to meet you all. As for me at the moment, I am just collecting models to use in DAZ3D to make something. Some I got plans to get, though I need to get the money first...and a job.

Thomas' blog: http://tpemberton.wordpress.com/

I love a lot of his old Max work, but his Wings modeling is even better, IMO. He still renders in Max, due to the fact that Wings is severely limited in that area, but he's switched completely to Wings for modeling.

I hear you on the money part, that's why I use freeware.

Hi, I am mainly a physical modeler. I'm looking into 3d modeling with the advent of 3d printers. I have some experience with light wave but I am still pretty new.

Welcome. I see you're a fellow Daytonian. I was born there, though I live in Huber Heights now.

3D printers are cool. I first saw some buzz about them on some of the forums a few years ago. They've gone down quite a bit in price since then.

I'm new here and I see from the last poster in this thread that there hasn't been much activity here in a while. I became interested in 3d modelling both to try to render some gaming characters I play on-line as well as some characters in a book I'm writing. I'm certainly no professional, but I've learned to use DAZ3d both versions 3 and now 4. I've found rendering 3d models is rather addictive. I mainly search for free models and textures on the various sites and that can take up quite a bit of time. Sci-Fi type armor and Fantasy plate mail or chainmail are items I look for most.

welcome aboard...... Lum V.

I think everyone joins first to download models, it is our hope that they well stay on and become part of this community.
I am not a professional either and I readily agree about the addictive part.

Newbie, starting out with Poser and 3dstudioMax. Mainly just tinkering right now, but starting to do set designs for a comic-strip that I am working on, as well as other projects.

Starship bridge, pick your own genre or do an original one. 100% original work, no use of models or textures from others. Size doesn't matter, it can be big or small. You may want to have this one go on for longer than a month, given the scope of it.

Sounds good... it won´t limit to a genre.

Perhaps December would give members time?

Beginning or end of Dec? It depends on the individual person, when it starts and when in Dec it ends as to if it's enough time. Some people can probably whip up a bridge over the weekend, others will takes weeks, some will take months (I don't know why I'm explaining this to you, you already know it.)

Hello and thank you for accepting my membership. I'm new to the 3D modeling scene but I'm having a fun time learning. I've been using 3D studio MAX and Anim8or mostly.
I hear lightwave is the better modeling software but that seems a lot more complex than 3DS Max.

Welcome aboard

I use lightwave myself and feel the same way about 3ds max

Thank you
I notice that people who use lightwave tend to create much more detailed models. My computer can barely handle some of them so I may need an upgrade before I seriously tackle lightwave.

On the renders with very complex models could the slow downs be a processor issue? My processor is a three year old duel core.

It would depend on what you have in the image and what settings , more ram is better for sure and you only know by doing it, you commented in shaggy´s "Fire... ...Everything!" thread,

Shaggy could answer this much easier as I only model (not finding the time to practice with the layout side of Lightwave).

check out the Tutorial Section (Handy links) tread you find in my signature area and we have a few tutorials in the link above (in the same area as Home, Info, Tutorials, Gallery, Downloads, link, you will find some help there too.

At the moment we are having issues with our image hosting but if you start either to model or render and need help, you can use photobucket (free account) and post it here and we can help you if we can.

I use photobucket myself.
