A Gun... and a neat little program called Wings3D

Post by draconis_sharp » Sat Sep 03, 2005 1:07 am

I've been messing around with a new modeling program that I picked up today, but had previously known about it. I found the learning curve to be quite low and I really just learned as I went along, building this model.



It's just a gun... My first model using this particular program. I based the design on several real life guns, but for the most part I just made it up as I went along. I found that it does many things that you wouldn't ordinarly be able to do in Milkshape, such as subtractive modeling, which I haven't quite mastered yet. Another good things is that it exports and imports to .obj and .3ds formats, which makes it a nice companion to MS3D. I suppose I forgot to mention what the program is. It's called Wings3D; I recomend it to anyone who already likes to use Milkshape.

If this program could be used to model A1 ships and what not, it would make a great beginner modeling program. 8)

Actually, I recomend that you learn MS3D first, so you understand the basics. This program is really only useful for Armada as a companion to MS3D.

Where is this program located at? I may have to try to out.
I enjoy the moments of peace and quite.
You know, when you dont think about anything.
I enjoy all 3 seconds of the day when that happens.

The website is www.wings3d.com

I've had a little trouble getting to that site recently. I think they are having problems with their server.
