    I think it's better to make a multi combined thread rather than loose ones...
    If not let me know... but for now I'll post my 3D trials here..

    [​IMG]

    well I need to figure out how to convert to shapeways data...
    I don't know if there's a program checking for errors...


    Check out this picture for reference:

    extra info on classics conehead weaponry:
    Becides the boxart weapons I'll add special (different) nullrays for ech member

    extra info on classics rainmaker weaponry:
    I'll focus on the rainmakers they're gonna get some really special stuff :p 
    and also a set of normal rainmaker null-rays

    extra info on classics rainmaker weaponry:
    then standard 3 seekers are in for a surprise, each gets his own unique special
    again will included standard nullrays as extra's

    extra info on autobot symbol:
    will be used in future endeavors for example as embossed insignias

    extra info on classics coneheads:
    I'll make a copy/replica of the original, which hopefully allow you to easy-bash&play led+switch+fuelcell installment
    (minor soldering work required and getting yourself the electrics.. but I'll also make the on commission)
    after that I really want Thrust/Ramjet/Dirge to each have slightly different characteristics (such as smirks etc.)

    REQUESTS:

    IDW style Skyfire arm cannons

    MAYBE:
    Classics Motormaster windvane

    The worst that could happen is that Shapeways will pull your listing. There are actually a lot of items with Autobot insignia on Shapeways already.

    nice clean models.

    A little something I noticed if I may offer a suggestion...

    Try to hard edge some of those areas. They look a but soft and blended instead of sharp in areas they should be. Specifically the third gun on the right.

    Keep up the good work.

    thnx... yeah somehow the renders look soft???
    could this be a default MAYA2011 render setting??

    since the edit wireframe view looks pretty hard right!

    Who wants to be a guinea pig and test for me :D 
    cash is MEGA LOW right now :( 

    And I still need to find out how to make a peg 3mm and 5mm...
    when that's settled a could adjust the scale of the rest...

    I could even make them MP sized for the upcomming I-gear coneheads :drool:

    UPDATE:
    This is a test to see if I can make a 3D copy when using a backdrop

    (above is my interpretation, will have to import or redesign using Maya)
    NOTE: below the original designer is ..... not mine, just made a 3D copy

    well default cheapest seem to have textured...
    but of course these are extremely simple objects the sand for smoothing
    O and yes apparently they have also got more expensive options

    thnx yeah I've been going with the boxart for all 3 coneheads :p 

    no it's a setting in the renderer, but haven;t found it yet :D
