The preparations for the upcoming exhibition in Chemnitz are on the way. A while ago, I presented my own 3D print of a 3D model I made a while ago. For the exhibition however, the print needed to be a little bit larger, in order for people to really see and touch. So they printed […]
Not all models are the same. When we create 3D visualisations, we build (model) these virtual data in a way, that is helpful to us when creating stills or animations. Sometimes, we build only certain views and sometimes we need to be very exact when we create our models and add a lot of detail. […]
