How to prepare hair for printing?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently working on a character figurine for our Pathfinder group, and I'm having a bit of trouble converting my hair work into a printable outline shape. I've tried shrinking some cloth around it but it's extremely slow to calculate and doesn't end up looking quite like what I was going for either.

Has anyone around here attempted something similar and could share some tips?

  • Thanks for that tutorial, but it seems to be quite specific and maybe not too applicable to my problem.

    I've attached a picture of the intended hairstyle, please ignore the additional collider geometry still in there, I'm currently at school and had to use a picture I had lying around.

    I think either not using hair and sculpting geometry or try converting hair to geometry straight out and use a heat gun to mould it to the shape you want after.

     

    here is some inspiration on a creative way to add hair to a print....
