That's a pretty cool idea.  It came out great!

You can do something pretty similar by using papercraft patterns as sewing patterns.  Easier because you don't need to determine yourself where the seams go, and there's a huge variety of papercraft online.

Thanks. I wanted to do a more direct conversion from the in-game model to a plushie. I'll look into paper crafts.

WOW he look Awesome and I vote for you

Thank you so much!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Plushies from Video Game Models *picture heavy* on: August 06, 2013 06:27:57 AM


I created this method to turn video game models into plushies. Below is cross-posted from my blog.

I started with this awesome 3D model of a video game character. It is made up of approximately three things.



The first is a set of 3D points, to define its shape.



The second is a set of 2D points (called UVs), to define how textures are applied to it.



The third is the texture itself.



I took that model, and created a new set of UVs for it, such that whenever two sets of UVs joined, a seam will be created on my final plushie.



Using scripts that I wrote, I created a new texture, based off of the new UVs, the old UVs, and the old texture. Heres one of several pieces.



This new texture I printed into fabric and sewed together to create my plushie.



You can see more pictures on my blog.

I entered this project in the Road to Maker Faire Contest. If I win, I could go to Maker Faire and teach people how to make their own plushies of their favorite characters. I would be able to give away my code, my patterns, and free kits.

Please vote for me.

Here's a mini-Heroe from the video game DOTA2.







I used the game's models and 3D printed them. It is printed on sandstone.

I have a tutorial here if anyone's interested. It can be applied to printing other figurines from other games, if you can extract the models.

I'm not entirely certain that this post belongs in here, so sorry if I'm in the wrong category.



I 3D-printed a pair of pants for starlight mints, to create Peppermint Butlers from Adventure Time.



Basically, I modeled individual pieces in 3D Studios Max, welded them together, and then 3D printed it.





I printed two versions, one slightly bigger to accommodate the plastic wrap and one fitting just-right.

The starlight mint is a real piece of candy  Grin

Very cool.  I don't understand what waterjetted means?  Can you explain what this technique is?

Thanks  Grin

I made that term up. It means to use a water jet cutter.
wiki article

I basically designed the ring on the computer, uploaded it to a water jet, and the water jet used high pressurized water to cut it from a piece of metal.

It takes less 10 minutes to cut each ring. Polishing it takes a fair bit longer.

It's a nice, quick n' easy way to make jewelry.  Cheesy
