3D Printing is Awesome
« on: October 07, 2015, 09:43:31 AM »
Do you know what 3D printing is? Yes? Great!

If not - It's a technique applied to actual printers. Instead of ink, these printers have been fitted with cartridges filled with some polymerized powder, that is thermally or chemically fused in the printing process into a solid form, to allow 3D shapes to be designed.

Oh yes they did.  8)

Just picture this: Get a group of friends together, pool together some money, get some exploration badges and a few cans of gold or silver spraypaint, and you can have fun COH style in exploring places. Geocaching maybe?

I wish I were better at painting. I made an all-white version of my main in Icon and it just looks like a chick in a flight suit. 3D-printing her isn't enough.

The clothing lighting patterns don't show up. I've also been warned the chest emblem bolt would appear as a cube or nothing at all
