A new TurboCAD video tutorial series I created that looks at creating a 3D paper cup with RedSDK applied materials and rendering.


Paper Cup includes six parts in the series.

I put together a new tip about TurboCAD and 3D printing. My 3D printing is limited to the MakeBot Replicator 2X but perhaps there is still some info in the tip that may translate to other 3D printers.

There is a new YouTube video as well that readers are directed to if they are interested.

Just a simple lock I created for fun to do a render comparison with TurboCAD Pro (LightWorks) and Fusion 360. Shadow in the Fusion 360 render was added in Photoshop.

Work keeps me extremely busy these days and I have very little time for 3D modeling just for the fun of it but I just had to make time for this new render. Last weekend my wife and I went to Regina for a little getaway. I saw this ratty old building across the street from our hotel. I liked the retro look of it (probably not retro by design but rather from the actual era) so I decided to give it a face lift in TurboCAD. 3D modeling was done in TurboCAD 2016 and rendered with LightWorks. I must confess that I snagged some of the inside furniture from Google Warehouse since I didn’t feel like modeling it.
