    The hollow process is this: duplicate the piece, one of them scale down and smooth till the good thickness. Then merge a long thin cylinder, because first is hollowig and second planar split. Then boolean-difference.

    I used to do the sam thing forghi till I learned about meshlab and uniform mesh resampling. You don't have to do any of the smoothing and wall thickness is consistent through out. BTW, what software do you use to render?

    It was rendered with Zb.

    Ah yes, I really like the renderings that come out of ZB. You should pick up meshlab for your cavities.

    Forghi, they look fabulous , really nice clean and well detailed figures. Now if all DS figures came to on the market looking like those,then I would definatly be interested in buying them, especially if they were Large scale Napoleonic.

    Thank you very much! But... Just for sure: What exactly "DS figure" means?
    sorry but it's seem that the usable part of my brain is not available now.

    i am very amazed with the archer. hopefully one day i will see them in the market, and i will definitely support it.

    Hi Forghi, Sorry, I understand it to mean Digitally Sculpted. But I also hope that it means that it is then Digitally printed? out to give the finished product rather than cast in moulds as is the norm at the moment with clay sculpts. I did see the body work of a model locomotive done Digitally and printed if that's the right word,and it looked very nice. My only concern was that as it was in kit form,some of the plate work was tissue paper thin. Transparent even,you could see light through it, and I did wonder how it would stand up to normal handling during the construction process. Good definition for a static display, but not meaty enough to stand up to the rigours of a working locomotive out in the garden.

    You think well, the goal is multiply the 3d printed prototype. And very important to choose right quality of printers. Here is an example for the wrong choise. It's made by Objet printer with 16 micron layer thickness and as you see it was not enough... archer cosmetology.jpg

    Thanks for your explanation,and all I can say is that if what you have shown here is what the quality of your finished product is,then Very well done, you seem to have cracked it,and shown the Benifits of a true Digital Sculpt, and what it can offer to us the buying public. I am interested.

    Thanks YellowBear! I must to develop a special casting technology, so when it is possible, I will report.

    Waterman, DS only means digital sculpting. The print material is not good enough to produce models in and it is very expensive if you want a durable print. The type of material you just described is an acrylic based material. It is held together cyno acrylate ??? not sure if that was the correct chemical name, but it is basically what we call here in the States Super glue. The material can be made more durable by pouring resin in the cavities. Most folks I know get the prints and then make molds from them. Myself included.

    Hello Forghi, as a sculptor who models, moulds, and casts by traditional methods, I suppose I should regard you as the crack of doom, but I think this stuff is absolutely fantastic!!! Just as I was going to say that youv'e got the arrow on the wrong side of the bow, you go and fix it in the next picture! You can really see the tension in both archer and bow. Great work.
    Best wishes, Gary.
    P.S. could you please show these in a colour other than chocolate brown? It makes me want to grab a bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk.

    Thank you!
    As you see in this case the winner is the traditional method, but I have seen awesome quality printing, for example my archer's head. The only problem was that it would have been twenty-five times more expensive... yet. So, keep up with the times! Otherwise the 3D printing does not replace the traditional moulding and casting method.
