    no ive not, the only time I used C4D for a lithophane was when I wanted to incorporate it into a different design so I used volume builder to make it how I needed but the lithophane STL still came from another website
  2. Insydium officially have my money this year. After yearly payments to MAXON for the last 15 years. It was a difficult decision to make but I feel better about making my own upgrade with x-particles and cycles. My R20 will be just fine for the foreseeable. I will be watching the future of Cinema4D as I am confident the missing features in R21 will be seen sooner rather than later for subscribers. Perpetual options seem to be mostly pointless now due to signing in every 14 days, the lack of cineversity and the fact that you'll be behind subscribers for features and every siggraph announcement will now feel lack luster. MAXON seem confident that perpetual license holders who upgrade this year will jump to subscription very soon and that's what makes me think more announcements (probably just after the new year)
  3. So this is where I'm at. My Studio MSA expires at the end of August so I will see what offer is being made to the likes of me first before being hasty. However, as my perpetual license is practically worthless to anyone else apart from me I can get off the upgrade bus without fear. I can spend my money on a redshift licence and xparticles and get much more new functionality. If MAXON then decide to release the headline features people were expecting to subscription customers over the next 12 months and I feel like I want in I can then sub. I then have the latest version but have the solid R20 and tools as a fall back if needed. Not fearing falling out the upgrade loop is pretty nice imo
  4. Aren't those before tax prices? Seems more expensive than MSA
  5. The biggest package shake up since modules were discontinued. That's when I had to move to studio so I didn't lose functionality. This seems similar for anyone not already using studio. It's all too vague for existing MSA holders. I'm not against subscription as such but if I can no longer afford it I want to know if I still have R20 to fall back on. I also used to think that if times got hard I had an option to sell my license but I guess that's not a thing anymore. I really need to know what my options are and the cost to me for the next year before commenting further. Ideally I would love R21 and red shift but we shall see. Features wise it doesn't look good on paper and not much that can be really shown off. I really hope you can feel the improvements when you are deep into a project. For those who have used R21. Is the vuewpotrt any faster?
  6. Thanks. She was actually the subject of the Maya tutorial. Thank You. And yes wires will be coming. I do need to retop the head as the loops aren't actually as good as they could be right now.
  7. I really haven't done much with C4D in a long time apart from make small things to print. I am missing the big projects so I have decided to dive back in. I realised how rusty I am with everything character related and that my previous methods would just not cut it. So, its back to tutorials and new better techniques. This animations theme is all about anxiety and general understanding of metal health and a story is loosely set surrounding a poem written by a good friend of mine. I found a tutorial series on YouTube which was perfect to capture the style I wanted so although it was in Maya and in a language I didn't understand I could follow along enough to start my main character. There is still much to do and things to change but I wanted to share my progress here as I haven't done that for quite some time. I also watched some great tutorials on the hair tools and using splines to get the shape you want and it worked a treat. Its early days but I am excited to be using C4D and pushing myself again. it cost too much not to use it properly. I welcome any crits but please bear in mind I have only just started and nothing is final.
  8. I will ask the wife but if you expect me to make it then I can guarantee it will look a lot better than it would taste as it will be mixed in c4d and baked on the printer.
  9. I was asked to buy some cake toppers which were based on the Classic The Snowman Cartoon from 1982 and sequel in 2012. I thought this is something I could design and print myself. I used C4D R20 and made a great amount of use of the volumes to make a simple move from C4D to the printer and its so easy I think this feature makes the upgrade worth it on its own. They were not exactly difficult models to make but I am really happy with the results none the less. Modelled in C4D R20 Printed on the Ender 3 Painted in Acrylic paints I hope you like them. thanks Sim
  10. This is all great. Thanks Srek. I already have my MSA so would be trying it anyway but its unexpected but welcome that is feature is perfect to what I am currently doing in 3D
  11. usual workflow is find random cool but pointless object on thingiverse then print it. However, when i am actually trying to be more ambitious i will model in C4D. I will usually do everything in one mesh with continuous flowing topology. If I struggle with holes or certain cutouts i sometimes export as an STL then import into tinkercad to add them as I don't want to deal with boole objects in C4D. 3D printer slicers like Cura do handle overlapping geometry fairly well but I hope now when I have a character rigged in C4D i can pose add all the parts in a builder and export for printing with little effort.
  12. What do you guys think of R20 for 3D printing. The volume builder seems to be a built in powerful tinkercad. You can take complex models of multiple parts and easily make it suitable for printing. I love the idea of this new feature and hope it works as I believe it should. In general though for other things I think the volume builder may make me a lazy modeller
  13. I remember you said you wanted a SLA. I didn't realise the Noble was a SLA but am checking it out now. I still plan to stick with the FDM type for now and experiment with material types and nozzle sizes etc. If I had a decent size garage or brick shed etc then I would be tempted with resin based printers. Your successful prints do look great
  14. have you moved on from the CR-10 already or are you creating an army of printers? I haven't any experience of the XYZ Nobel I assume its a full on kit to build? I am thinking of getting an Ender 3 as a 2nd printer
  15. I missed the cineversity vids as well. I may still check them out as mentioned before you only need wall thickness if it is a hollow object. Any manifold (water tight) object should slice and print fine. Other things to bear in mind though are over hangs, thin parts and orientation so you get the best print possible
