  1. @bezoThanks for the video it's helped me get started. I found a reference file on creating a flower using Pose Morph. The file has a null with the Pose Morph tag and it contains each individual pose, this is then linked to a base object which is effected by the sliders. I thought I'd try it the same way which I found easier to do, especially when it came to creating curves in my object. Both my file and the reference file look the same as the picture I've uploaded, but my object is only effected by one slider at a time whereas the reference file can be effected by multiple sliders at once. Any ideas as to what I might have missed or why it's only being effected by one at a time?
  2. Hi guys, It's been a very long time since I setup a Pose Morph (PoseMixer) and so have forgotten how to do it and all the information from the google search results are no longer available, so could someone remind me how to set one up please. It is just for simply changing the shape of a cube, so nothing to elaborate. Thanks in advance, your help is very much appreciated. Jim
  3. Eyup @Igor, you can believe it I'm here! I've been lurking, reading a few boards here and there but never signed in. I did sign in about a month or so back, someone was asking about a Lithophane I had created a couple of years ago. At the time I was trying to rescue the harddrive that had everything on from the last 10yrs of c4d, photoshop, 3d printing and a few other bits on. There was about 2.5TB of data just gone! To say I was crying is an understatement! Luckily I found some software for about £20 that got a little over 90% of the files back thankfully all the important ones! Everything is now floating around in a cloud! I did find the lithophane file the he wanted too, and sent him a link to download it. whether he did or not I don't know, I didn't hear anything from him after posting the link! Other than that, I'm not too bad. How about yourself? I forgot about seting up a scene and saving it as the default (been such a long time since a did it), I didn't know if you could do it in the settings somewhere. So thanks for that reminder, and thanks to @C4DS as well. If you can do it in R20/21 it might be time for me to upgrade. My use of C4D seems to have increased this last year or so!
  4. These models look great. Have you just modelled them, or have you actually laser cut them? Just wondering if I tried 3D printing them, the pieces would fit together?
  5. Eyup guys, Been a very long time since I was last here to ask questions and explore the cafe, and boy has it changed! Hope everyone is well and keeping themselves busy and having fun. Now down to business! A quick and simple question. Is it possible to set all of the viewports so they are more 'zoomed in' than the default? I work pretty much exclusively to my 3D printers build volume 300 x 300 x 400 mm, and I have pretty much got everything set to within those sizes by default, which means everytime I start anything from scratch I've got to zoom in. I know I can hit O which will zoom in on the object, but thought it might be easier if I could start from an already zoomed in view? Thanks in advance for the help Jim
  6. Well there's good news and there's better news! The good news I've found the files you wanted. I've zipped it up but it's too big to upload here, so I've uploaded it to dropbox and shared the folder, you should be able to download it from here https://www.dropbox.com/s/vsgahv3gebpy205/Dragon Lith.zip?dl=0 Any problems let me know and we'll have to come up with another way to get it you you. The zip contains the C4D file, the image I used, and the stl, so all you have to do is slice it and print it. The better news is I've got 99% of my files back that I thought I'd lost. I've been spending the last fews days sorting through it and uploading it to the cloud. I've still got a way to go, but I've never been so relieved. Not sure what the 1% was that I've lost but from what I can tell it's nothing important. Thanks for being patient. Enjoy the files, you'll have to let me know how it turns out.
  7. It has been a very long time since I was here. A lot has changed and I've been incredibly busy! Although I didn't think it had been that long! I am currently trying to recover the external hard drive that that file is on. The hard drive somehow became currupted, I think it was down to a power serge we had just before Christmas that killed my pc! I have everything crossed and I'm praying a lot that I can recover some if not all that was on it as there was almost 2 TBs worth of C4D and 3D printing files on it. What makes it worse is that that was my backup! I was transferring stuff to it at the time! The scans have been running for the past 2 days and should be done by morning, hopefully then I'll have an idea of what I can get back. If that file is amongst them then I'll gladly let you have it. Give me a couple of days as I'm not 100% sure how long it's going to take. Once I know more I'll let you know.
  8. This is awesome. Skulls are one of my favourite things. Would love to put this on my 3D printer.
  9. Just realised I did mine in the coffee window and not the python window! However when I redid it in the python window it still didn't work! Just done some messing about with bits, such as deleting the \\\\\\ and have now got it working and have added it to my layout. Thanks for all the help, much appreciated. Jim
  10. Thanks @bezofor putting all that down, not sure what when wrong though as when I hit execute nothing happened! I copied and pasted what you had written above into the script mgr and pasted in the line from the script log, but as it is now nothing happens!! In the line where it says 'if __name__==' should I have changed that to say the name of my object? Cheers Jim
  11. Don't think the first option will work as I've made this sphere from scratch, so can't save as default. Could do it with the a script, but I wouldn't have a clue how to do that! In all the years I've been using C4D it's one area I never touched.
  12. Hi Guys I've created a sphere which I'll be using a lot. How do I go about creating a button for it to add to my layout, so I can just click the button and it appears without me having to go searching through my files hunting for it every time I need it? Is there a tutorial somewhere for doing this kind of thing? Cheers Jim
  13. @VECTOR Is it congratulations or commiserations I wish you? At 41 I'm too young to be a grandparent yet. I did try and persuade her to keep it inside for at least another 10 years but she was having none of it. Jim
  14. Just spent a painful day looking at baby stuff for what will be my 1st grankid. The wife can't wait, I'm just glad I can hand the thing back at the end of the day! Just seen this and it put a smile on my face. Thanks Vector. Great work mate. Jim
  15. When using the knife tool, if there isn't one already, is there a way to create a shortcut that will allow you to turn the angle constraint option on and off? Cheers Jim
  16. Awesome Simmy. The Pangolin was my first articulated print, think I spent about 30mins breaking the joints. I think it has to be one of my favourite prints so far.
  17. Yeah I will do. I'll post some wips up tomorrow when I make a start on it.
  18. Yeah, sorry. I meant once the model was complete it would be printed as one. During the modelling process I'll do it as you suggested, although knowing my character modelling skills I'll probably end up modelling each part separately and try to stick them altogether at the end. @Simmy Thanks. Yeah I tried both Thingyverse and MyMiniFactory, as well as a few other places. They're usually my first stop on the hunt for models. They did have one or two baby mobiles, but nothing anywhere near what I wanted to create. The only thing I found was the unicorn.
  19. Yeah I was thinking something similar to that, but as 1 piece instead of having it separate. I want to try and keep the models as one piece for when they get printed. I found this little guy this morning, which printed as 1 piece and it turned out really well. Think he'd fit in quite well, although at 15cm high he's a bit big to go on a mobile.
  20. Yes please. That would be awesome and very much appreciated. I'm going to try and tackle that giraffe in the morning. The arms, legs and tail look pretty easy, it's the transition from the body to the head and the ears I'm not to sure of. I've got a few ideas on where to start.
  21. Yeah that would be awesome. I might just have to have a go at that. That giraffe doesn't look toooooo hard!! I'll have a look in the morning, see if I can create something. I may have to fire some questions your way for some help, if that's ok?
  22. Thanks, I'm really not looking forward to it!! Sorry I meant to say I'm really looking forward to it . I'm looking for cartoon style animals, similar to the pics below. I did want 3D animals one as I thought they'd look better, but if I can't get them I thought I could use the images below and do them in a 2D style. Thanks @teknow much appreciated, I'm sure they'll come in handy Cheers Jim
  23. Hey Guys, I just found out today that I'm going to be a Grandad (God Help me!!!) Sooooo, I'm in search of some baby animal models, preferably free ones. So I can 3D print them and make a mobile for it's crib. I have tried a google search but found very little suitable for what I wanted to do. I have got a back up plan if nothing comes up. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Jim
