The weather has been rather cold as of late. That means my basement is at uncomfortable temperatures to be doing anything productive in it. While I’ve done a bit of sanding on the Sith Mask, I’ve not made much progress. I’ve sanded stuff upstairs in the past… it’s messy… so I try not to do that.
The printer has been going pretty steady despite the cold. I’ve printed a couple of replacement upgrades. The high temperatures of ABS is warping old PLA parts. I’ve also printed a baseball bat mount for Jess to put “Lucille” up on her wall.
To keep up my productivity I’ve turned my attention to learning a bit of 3D modelling, using a free program called Blender and lots of Youtube tutorials. I’m familiar with a lot of graphics programs and feel almost none of those skills transfer over to 3d modelling. It has been a long time since I’ve tried to learn a program and had no frame of reference to another program. After this morning I’m feeling pretty good about my first steps.
My name is Chris Duffield. I live in New Brunswick Canada where I am the co-owner of a Comic and Board Game store. Along with the inspiration of my loving wife Jessica and aid of my assistant Harry (he’s a cat) I’m looking to have a space to share my hobbies and chronicle the process of creation.
