Our Shape Re-cap and 3D Printing.

At the beginning of our course in Intro to 3D Design, we thought of what shapes that would define us. I chose a sphere because it is an object that is infinite on all sides and is seen as an object that can be shaped from. I still believe that I represent that object, but in addition I believe that I take part in all of it’s process of how it can be used through creativity.

I imagine this object being displayed as a sphere with pieces being broken off or chiseled away in the process of creating something. I would love to see something like that 3D Printed. The object would be a printed printed sculpture that could be hand held, or even statue sized.


The Hero’s Journey Video

For my finals for this quarter, I have done the video project for The Hero’s Journey. This video gives us the experience to view the journey as if we were taking part in it. This video was made possible by everyone that is a part of the Digital Storytelling courses and 3D Design, all work done by them has been very appreciated. Great job everyone!

The Hero’s Journey New Student Orientation Digital Storytelling and 3D Design Interactive Project is an ongoing, persistent engagement experience to inform and inspire new students to attend Peninsula College on campus and online.

Digital Storytelling students design, build, and institute components of The Hero’s Journey. The continual goal of the project is to build an innovative marketing space and introduction to the college through an adventure filled with information, helpful resources, encouragement, and inclusive experiences.

Key to Success

While working with Photoshop to make my key to success, I learned to make the key pretty easily with the base then all the other pieces worked from there. The bottom piece of the key was made from copying and pasting from the original png file then extruding it in 3D. As for the upper part of the defining symbol, it was made from basic shapes and layers to match that exactly towards the key design. Afterwards I finished the details on the base of the key with the cylinder pieces accenting the center. After learning how to merge the layers of the 3D key in Photoshop, the dae file imported into Second Life pretty well, just needed some fine detail adjustments with the width and depth.

I would say that after learning how 3D works with Photoshop, that I was pretty successful with making the key to precisely with how it should be. Knowing simple ways towards design and putting 3D pieces together, it was a great task in showing how our 3D designing skills would be incorporated in our class work. Once the key was put into Second Life, it was amazing to see how the key would be shown in the virtual world. I highly enjoyed the process.
