Well, I am new to DAZ 3D, but am old… older than most here, I would suggest. 69 years tomorrow.
I am here because I want to use DAZ 3D to create a 3D object that represents an old master painting. It is my thought to use that model to have a sculpture 3D printed. I have a lot of questions and am just not struggling with the example videos.
If there is someone out there who would like to learn more about my particular interest and would be willing to mentor, I would love to hear from you. Feel free to drop me a line.
Don’t be so sure that you are older than some of the forum members, although I admit most will possibly be younger.
For a start, do be aware that at this particular point in time DAZ 3D are not allowing 3D printing. The EULA does say
The creation of three-dimensional physical images (3D-print, molded copy, CNC-routed copy, and the like) of Content or any three-dimensional art derived from the Content is permitted only by User’s purchase from DAZ, via the User’s online DAZ store account, of permission to deliver User’s derived works (art), including necessary Content, to an entity that creates three-dimensional images in a physical medium. User may then deliver User’s art in file format to that third party to have three-dimensional physical images printed or created, up to the limitations set forth in the online DAZ Store as delineated on the purchase page associated with the permission purchased. These limitations govern (i) personal and/or commercial use of the three-dimensional physical or printed images; and (ii) the quantity of three dimensional physical or printed images allowed.
But to date there is no 3D license available.
Next point is we have a New Users Help Forum, specifically designed to help New Users get to grips with their New Software in a friendly and helpful way.
Hello my name is Chris but my screen name is Ranzzlee on this site. I have been drawing for years (I’m 47) and was very happy to get this software and be able to fuel my imagination with these wonderful 3D models and items. I am enjoying creating this kind of art as well as seeing others who are doing the same.
Plenty of characters to work with here, although they are a bit high poly for game use, but the principles are the same. Make sure to download and install the Genesis Starter Essentials bundles which come free with DS4.6, and the other free things that come with it too.
If you need any help, we can always be found on the New Users Help forum.
Hello, my name is Tiffani and this is my second try at Daz3d (tried before when v3 and millennium characters were in, I think). I am a photography enthusiast (I guess, still got a lot to learn). I love graphic design, and graphic/photography/art manipulation. Thanks for all you do, I am very inspired .
I learned about Daz3d when I was scavenging on Google for character modeling software that can be downloaded with ease.
Even though I’m a newcomer at character-modeling, a major motivation behind me wanting to do it is because I’m interested in qualifying to later on become a game developer at Capcom Vancouver.
As you become more familiar with the concept of 3D figures, lighting and rigging, you will eventually find that you need to move beyond DAZ Studio to integrate 3D modeling into your work, if that is the direction you wish to go.
Fortunately, DAZ 3D has some other 3D creation software titles in its stable of software that offers numerous ways to expand your craft.
Duke Magus here. Barely started discovering what the tridimensional art is all about, but i’m genuinely curious about it, so i’ll try a casual approach.
My aspirations are way more moest than an actual artist, i just want to lear how it works and check what i can do to refine/animate some old game-related 3d models (fair use/parody/nonprofit and other laws protecting the approach)
well, there you have it. for now i’ll be reading some daz and poser guides to get the hang of it and then start rockin’ on!
I’m a professional writer/illustrator (with my artwork appearing on covers from HarperCollins, Pocket Books, Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine, Amazing Stories Magazine, and many other small presses and self publishing authors).
I’ve been using DAZ Studio (and a wealth of 3d models from DAZ3D) for about a year now. And I’m using it more and more as a “shortcut” to get projects done for clients. It has proven to be a super time save—and also has cut my expenses in hiring human models and/or stock photos.
First time posting here, My name is Lawrence and I’ve really been enjoying DAZ ever since I downloaded it.
I hope to be making some cool renders shortly and new friends.
It’s all so new and has tons of settings, so I need to figure it all out. Till then nice to meet you all
Hopefully I can contribute what I know to help others like I have seen so many have done already.
