Guys, as a beginner I love modeling, I love texturing my model, but ... I cant get past the UVs. Please, give me some tips how do I get rid of all those distortions and seams. I tried taking a seam - moving and sewing and then unfolding the UV but after this procedure my UVs look even worse. how this even works... is there any other magical tool, maybe even seperate program that can just save me all my headaches with the UVing or some logical way ot UVing. SOS

Welcome to hell

Judging by the edges that have been marked, it looks like the auto-UV tool did it for him.

You've got a shit-ton of useless edgle loops which is probably not helping for unwrapping.
The corners/edges for those legs could have a simple small bevel on them, with maybe 1 added loop, and in Sub D they'll have plenty of support to be "sharp" enough. Clean up your mesh before unwrapping it'll make your life easier.
This is the answer. You have so many edgeloops that it makes UV wrapping WAY more difficult than it has to be.

Thanks for the tips anons.I decided to start with more simple unwrapping - linear objects and I will work my way up to the harder unwraps like my table leg ealier. So far pic related is going better (at least in my noobish eyes).
Forgot to post a question.

After I move and sew the seams (there I dont want them) should I unfold the UV shell? Because when I unfold it it sometimes results worse checkers. And... if I dont unfold it the textures will just overlap at some places. So whats the solution here to have non-overlapping textures and not distorted checkers?

>being this inferior at bargains
and this only covers what I bought at DAZ
I'm just glad there are a few honest anon's here.
I've made too many friends of vendors at this point, it's not worth it to steal their stuff.

Whats the best process to create 3D releif from 2D images/photos without a lot of hassle?

I got a new 3d printer and wanna have some fun maybe print some pusy and bob from some pornos but i wanna do them like they are a framed photo, i think it would be fun

iv been googling around a bit but lots of the programs are pretty dated so im sure theres better ways now.

iv got PS and maya, so ideally if i can use those, fantastic

this should suit you. Its in russian but just follow what he does and you will get the end result. Cons are the topology is horrible at the end so you will need to work on that yourself
Thanks dude that's actually exactly what I needed. Though what I wanna try is a bit more detailed this is a cool start. Thankies dudie I fucking love /3/

I made a Mac Tonight 3D head and went and ported it to SFM but I don't think I can release him because people would make inferior moon man meme stuff and not objectively better Vaporwave God Mac Tonight stuff.

What a comically immature mindset. Just release it and encourage people to be creative instead of making /pol/ memes.
people will do, whether you want them to do so or not
it's up to you how much you are willing to enforce it
No one needs your fucking shitty Mac Tonight, we will make moon man art with or without you.

This is one of my very first Maya designs soon to also be 3D printed. Any tips so I can improve when I start my next project?
Bevel everything. That is a really important thing that will break that 3d look. Even if it is just a tiny amount of beveling.

Looks cool, though.

OP here. Thanks for the feedback! I'll look into it when i design another non-anatomic model. Btw here's the printed rifle.
Which printer did you use, anon?
Looks like you might want to play with some of the settings.
OP here. It's certainly not my printer. It's the one we have on campus: Makerbot+. Most of the settings were suggestions for the quickest quality print (2hrs 49mins).
A fast print makes sense. Buttery smooth ones take a good amount of time.

/b/ user spillover here. Funny enough, I was just learning from this exact series and came into the forum looking for where to go with it once I’m done! I’m following blendergurus guide right now, I’m about halfway through, helarious that a lot of other people have also found his content, id say it’s extremely thorough for a first timer like myself! I’ve taken about 5 pages of notes and I can do almost everything up to the 5th video off memory!

I’d say he does a fantastic job laying out the fundamentals

I also did my first render today and feel that I wanted to post it somewhere. I was just messing around in fusion 360 trying to learn a little bit about 3d modeling and I found out there was a rendering studio built in. tinkered with some of the settings for a few minutes, and BOOM I was fucking blown away by the result.
Its very film grainy and I don't know why. Still I am very impressed

Is Adobe Fuse CC or Adobe Dimension CC better for modeling for 3D printing? What is the difference?

I already pay for the CC suite so I'm hoping those are on par or better than the stuff in the sticky:
>3DS Max
>Cinema 4D
>Softimage XSI
>Blender 3D (Free!)

Which software should I start playing with?

video tutorials are a mistake. youtuber shits make an hour-long unedited video filled with ums and has when they could have just showed you with decent captions in 5 minutes.

>Fusion 360
Use the ViewCube in the top-right corner. Standard on all Autodesk products.

Seriously dude just click buttons to see what they do. Make a sketch on a plane, draw some shit, extrude it, get on with your life
You can open this example file of a bike pedal in fusion 360 and go through the history.
It might not be the most ````optimal''''' way to design something in Fusion 360, but it's one hell of a lot better than the absolute STATE you're in.

heres some real shit, if your doing anything more than dicking around with simple trash
its the only real way to get complex joints in figurines and manipulate ultra high detail models. Read this sexy blog and watch his livestream of the entire process if you need to be convinced https://polysculpt.com/en/articles/making-of-2b-from-nierautomata/
it fixes everything easy and cuts watertight meshes. No other program can do this. I use it to OPEN files with more than 6 million polygons, and cut them into smaller sections for printing
Almost all of your 3d print quality problems happen in slicing, s3d the only slicer that doesnt suck in high poly models
This is a better option than zbrush for making very complex abstract models but it is poorly suited for making characters and takes a much longer time to get good at.
What you really DONT want to be doing is sitting around pulling points. Most of the programs you listed are identical and more focused on rendering for movies. 3D printing is uniquely difficult because you can't use low polygon tricks when your printing but thankfully quads don't matter.
>im confused
sculpt in zbrush until you're good at that and then worry about how to print
Pay? Linux and free apps better. GL noob

What the absolute shit is this faggotry? Why is it that in the last couple years in ALL kinds of software more and more basic and established user interface philosophies get thrown out the window?
Colors are another layer of information in an icon that especially helps to QUICKLY read and find them without even really focusing on them directly. This gets lost when you fucking go for 2010s design memes.
If you cry "but it looks so much cleaaaner and it distracts you way less" then why the FUCK don't you just switch into fullscreen mode to check your fucking project every once in a while without ANY buttons in sight?
It's also strange how in the Blender case it seems like the monochrome icons are now a "fixed" feature while they usually always give Blender users options. I don't see them in this case and apparently it's not even possible to switch back to the old icon set.
Everything computer and software related gets dumbed down and I hate it.

How hard / easy is it to script Blender with python compared to Maya to create an autorigger?

>How hard / easy is it to script Blender with python...
I really have to imagine that it all depends how good you are at Python. The good thing is that if you haven't learned Python, it's VERY easy to learn.
>laughably non-free
Like seriously, I do not want to spend nearly 40 bucks on a fucking addon.

Why do these people insist on doing this sort of thing in the first place? It's rucking fetarded and needs to stop. There needs to be a cap for all plugins and addons for all programs if you ask me.
Someone should set up a group buy, get all those add-ons, strip them out of any content not licensed under the GPL, and share them on GitHub.

Bonus points if they start a fork of Blender and integrate the best from those plug-ins into it. Who knows, perhaps this could snowball into attracting more devs to the fork and improving it beyond what the original plug-in authors could do.
Blender has a pretty neat autorigger already. But it should be breddy easy if you kno python.

Nips really know how to CGI. It's like they learned to make their animu into CGI.
well when you got infinite budget and everyone's already used to the CG from the video games it's pretty easy to convince people to do things other than 12FPS berserk-tier CGI
its not real time. Discarded.

By learning principles, and reusing your knowledge in repetitive process, you build solid foundations and gain more experience that is going to prove more useful to you while working on bigger projects in future.

You are also less likely to burn out and stay focused on smaller projects, and finishing them gives boost of new motivation.
