2 0 Beginner
In my previous tutorials I have discussed the different ways that color can be assigned to models and how Photoshop can be used to make color adjustments for texture files. If such adjustments need to be made to a vertex painted model then this typically requires the original model file or specific design software such as ZBrush. But there is an easy way to create a texture file using Photoshop. Watch this video to find out more...

JP_011_GrabCAD Print: 「マットかグロス?」3D造形でどのような場合にどちらの仕上げを使用すればよいのか

1 0 Beginner
マット(艶消し)にするか、それともグロッシー(光沢)にするか、それが今回のテーマです。 PolyJetプリンタをお使いの皆さんは、部品をマット仕上げにすべきか、グロッシー仕上げにすべきかで悩むことがよくあります。 皆さんが頭を悩ませるのも無理ありません。それ以外の点はまったく同じの2個の部品でも、仕上げのタイプが異なると、見た目、感触、色、そして強度や耐久性までもががらりと変わってしまう可能性があるのです。どちらの仕上げにもそれぞれ、考慮すべき独自のメリットと影響があります。 このチュートリアルでは、マット仕上げとグロッシー仕上げの概要を説明し、それぞれの長所と短所を比較し、それぞれのタイプがどのような仕上がりにつながるのかを明確に示す例を紹介します。そして最後に、どのような場合にどちらの仕上げを使用すればよいのかを簡単に分類してまとめとします。
