I recently been playing around more and more with 3D modelling.
There are two reasons for this.
Firstly as you may have seen from my previous posts I am building a 3D printer. Secondly I have been prototyping different computer game ideas in Unity for a while now and decided to switch to 3D for some of my ideas.
Here is a couple of images of a tank model I am working on. It does not really have a dedicated purpose yet but I thought if I made any models for use in games they could be simplified for printing purposes.
The weapon of choice for my 3D modelling is Blender. This is because it is a free open source application with plenty of tutorials on itself and integration with Unity.
It looks like 3D printing will pose its own challenges where things like over hanging parts will be a challenge. This does give me the idea of printing a model over several runs in kit form though which would be cool.
