1  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

Cicadas are awesome. Their gentle hiss greet summery days.

Two years ago, I waterjetted rings featuring cicada wings.

I recently found them while rummaging through old bins.

Sleep No More is an amazing show/unforgettable experience/pure awesomeness.

I went in January and was super inspired to make a dress.

Here it is: Caroline Dress, made with custom printed fabric from Spoonflower.

I present to you: a l i o t h

It features the "opposites attract" theme in two days: a day and night theme, and the reversal of front and back of the shirt

Also, it has light up LEDs! Grin
You can watch it glow/blink:

It was super hard not to post about this.  Grin
It's my first time drafting my own pattern. I think it came out pretty ok.
It's also my first craft challenge. It's been super fun. Cheesy

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Jace - 3D printed BJD on: February 22, 2012 09:22:11 PM
This is an old project.

I 3D printed a ball-jointed doll, BJD, head.
Afterwards, I spray painted it.

I'm in the middle of a few other projects, so making body is on a small hiatus.
But I'm putting in eyes soon!

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Help! Textbook cover is falling off, what to do? on: April 30, 2006 02:31:40 PM
I have a hardcover textbook (with thick, old-dictionary type binding) from school and the cover just randomly started ripping off one day.
Now, the cover is almost complete servered from the book.
How can I keep the cover intact or fix it so that the cover doesn't come off?
