I just now stumbled upon a nice mod someone made of Petunia over at the lumalab forum. Thanks Engys for showing what you did! It once again proves how cool it is to give away your models for free. He also did a little walkcycle you can find on the forum.
Sam Brubaker was kind enough to send me a scan of this April’s copy of Mechanical Engineering magazine. Shapeways once again made the news, and the magazine put Petunia on the page rather prominently. Once again there’s proof that giving away things is cool!
Emu made this wonderfull paper version of Petunia. This really is the reason I love giving things away for free. It’s incredibly motivating to see what people come up with.
For the full post with more images, and an explanation of how he did it go here.
Petunia is a 3d robot model that I created for the 2007 Blender Conference Art Festival. Shapeways decided to add a nice picture of a prototyped version of the bot to their press corner. Since then the lovely image appeared at several news websites/items.
Here’s a small list
It is once again that time of year. Leaves are falling, the drizzle comes down steadily over the Netherlands, and everyone who uses Blender is headed for Amsterdam. This year the Blender Conference is taking place at De Zwijger for the first time. For me… I am once again in charge of the Blender Conference Animation Festival. I undertook rather a big project this time to create the announcements.
