So it's been a while since I posted a journal update, and now's a good time since some stuff is going on this week.  But on the note of updates, some of you might have noticed I've been doing semi-daily twitter updates.  I found that this was generally a less stressful way to record what we're up to because every time I write a journal entry, I feel compelled to make it some super in-depth novel about everything that has gone on every day.  I just generally needed a simpler, quicker way to publish what the daily work agenda is, and twitter was perfect for that. You can follow me here, or just check up on the feed that's embedded on my DA page.

Anyways, about this week, and the week after.  I'll be flying back east for two weeks, which means I'll be cut off from print work, and be solely focusing on 3D modeling during that time.  However, Rabid will be able to print the models that I send him, as well as sand them.  It just means that no figures will be completed during the next 2 weeks, just modeling, printing, and sanding.  So expect my daily updates to involve a lot of modeling notes.  As well as modeling rants.:P

Hey there!
You all can call me Nyasu!
My partner is RabidPeep and we print ponies.


What program do you use for your 3D modeling?

I use 3ds Max for everything. Most of my earlier models were intended for video game use, so Max was a natural choice. You can download it from the Autodesk website if you're a student.

Can I download your models for Gmod / Source Filmmaker / my own printing?

You cannot. These models are made for our personal 3D printing commissions. They put food on the table. :P

What kind of printer do you have? How much was it?

We use a Reprap Prusa Mendel. My partner Rabid bought it for around $800, assembled it from scratch, and does all the maintenance for it. Have any more questions about the process of running a printer or making models for printing? Feel free to throw one of us a message!

What made you guys decide to take up 3D printing?

Owning a 3D printer had been a long-held dream of Rabid's, and last summer it finally became possible. I heard about it and wanted in because it sounded cool as hell and was a good opportunity to build up my 3D modeling portfolio. Our skill sets and work styles are perfectly suited to collaborating on a project like this, as he has the technical expertise, I have the artistic expertise, and we're both decently knowledgeable in the other's field so it's easy to communicate. Neither of us could pull this off without the other.

Do you sell 3D prints of non-pony things?

We definitely intend to eventually. The problem is that they will take longer than ponies by virtue of not having a uniform body shape. Pokémon and anthros are top of the to-do list. Video game characters are an interesting case because there's a possibility that we could simply print the already-existing in-game model if it's available online. Feel free to ask.

Do you guys do trades?

Not at this time, sorry. But if you're a plushie maker we might be forced to reconsider.

Why hasn't my commission been printed yet?

Ask Rabid. @_@ He runs the printer and has control over everything on that end of the process so whenever anyone asks me this all I can do is stand there feeling kind of embarrassed.

How do I commission a running pony animation?

Sorry, but I don't do animated commissions anymore. Unless you're one of the handful of people still on the waitlist of old, but if you are, chances you wouldn't be asking this.

Are you ever going to finish that Locking up the Sun animation?

I'm amazed that people still want to see this completed. The answer is yes, and I'll probably work on it as soon as we get the commission list under control.

With all the hype around fallout equestria I'm surprised no one has requested little pip yet.

I've gotten requests for a couple of FOE characters before, but they've always happened during closed slots, or I've turned them down for being too complex.

I definitely want to do Cheese at some point, even if no one commissions him!
