back The Ticketeer

This enforcer of the law is handsome, intimidating, and always packing heat. Each day he's prepared for World War III in anticipation of the crucial role he will play as a defender of truth and justice. Till then, he writes tickets...

Designed and sculpted as an action figure for Pinshape's Toy Design Contest. Test printed with Jonathan Williamson's Form1. My first 3D Print!

    iintextdesign Oh I see. While I did model the character in separate pieces, I had to merge them together in one piece in an intentional way - not just with CTRL + J.

    If I remember correctly, I union-booleaned them together and maybe ran a high-resolution remesh modifier to clean up the bad geometry.

    Does that help clarify?

    bruffin776 Thank you 🙇🏻‍♂️

    This is amazin, I love the context. Brilliant

    theluthier Much clearer now. Thank you.

    Dear Kent, any suggestion with regards to my query below?

  • Jonathan Marie

    theluthier What I meant by multiple pieces is that your sculpture seems to be made up of separate meshes, for instance the cap, sunglasses, vest, pen, etc.. My question is whether we can just simply join multiple meshes together into a single object (by hitting Ctrl+J) and 3D print it?

    iintextdesign I built it in two pieces, you can see the seam just above the waist (bottom of the vest). I'm trying to remember the exact reason..maybe the 5" print was a little too tall to do in one solid piece. ccarter2422 is the one that printed it - Can you remember a reason I separated into two halves?

  • Jonathan Marie

    theluthier Thank you for your comment. I've got two additional questions. Is the digital version of your sculpture made of a single piece? Or does the printer has the ability to handle multiple pieces at once and print a single object from them?

    iintextdesign I simply printed it from the raw sculpture. However I did run a decimate modifier on it to shave off some geometry resolution for optimizing export. But definitely not a retopology.
