When you 3D print something, how do you make simple mechanics work, such as a sliding door?

Do you simply leave a tiny gap in the 3D model so that the door is not attached to the rest and just print as is?

I've made my first ever complete cartoon head mesh in Maya, and now I want to set about rigging and animating it for UE4. I know it's a piece of shit, but I'm just trying to get some practice down.

I have no idea what I'm doing at this point. I'm going to cut open the mouth, curve the lips inside a little bit and put a separate mesh (the teeth and throat) into it. Hopefully then I can parent this to the head mesh, rig it and animate it. From what I understand, they do roughly the same thing with eyeballs.

Is this the right way to go about...

the basic idea is correct, but you might find it difficult to properly rig your model if topology is not proper
As per the tutorial I used when modelling, I've guided my topology around the eyes and the laugh-lines, so I don't think that should be a problem.

Right now, I'm just trying to figure out how to cut open the mouth without fucking up everything.

Redo the head properly before moving on to anything else. We can't see the mesh, but this is a rough for sure. Think quality, not quantity.

Holographic foil shader, where to begin?

My instinct is to have a color ramp in a reflection channel, and mask text/image/whatever in a specular channel, but the results are not quite right.

Specifically interested in a shader for Unity, but any insight would be helpful.

Change metalness using fresnel or something like that.
Bump is too strong.
You need a normal map that doesn't affect the "regular" lighting, then you can map the different vectors to different colors. You could use the reflection angle for further color mapping on top of it.
I'm afraid you won't get around writing a custom HLSL/GLSL shader.

A friend of my boss asked him to hire his son to work as a 3d modeler, thinking he's very talented and passionate.
However, after checking his portfolio, we found that his son has been bullshitting talents and skills he doesn't have at all by plagiarizing other people's works, even very simple and mundane things, if you knew the whole story but it's TL;DR, you can tell he doesn't know anything at all, except some gibberish "alien characters" he did with Sculptris, all else is smoke and mirrors.
However, my boss still wants to give him...

Just test him on basic workflows/topology, ask him to model a teapot from scratch. Pretty damn easy if you know what you're doing, pretty fucking hard otherwise.
But really, what does his dad hope to happen? If he can't do what is needed he isn't employable. attitude doesn't mean shit if you simply cannot do the job.

Get him to do the human body op. The human body has always been and always wil be a test of an artist skill. Tell him not to use pretenders models from poser/etc and start from scratch and show procedural progression of his work.

her hair is breddy simple considering it doesn't sashay like Violet's, just make it as a 2 bang cap that meets in the back and use alpha maps for the strands in the front.

Ok guys.

What's the best way to make anime-like waifus?

Low poly (non sculpt) or sculpt (zbrush)?

why would you wanna make a lowgaypoly crap visuals when you can do proper 3D hentais ?
make cube > cut edges/extrude/ pull verts
In literally any 3d modelling software.
If you know even the basics of 3D modelling you shouldn't be needing to ask this.
I'm asking what's the more efficient way having into account is an anime waifu, not a 3D hyperrealistic batman sculpture.

Hello /3/

I am new to this board. I have always mapped alot in Hammer Editor but since time changes I am in need for something more modern. I am currently trying to understand UE4/UDK but I have some problems with texturing.

I know how to do brushwork or meshes, but I absolutely fail at texturing them.

I have already googled this, youtubed it, asked in the official forums but I just cannot find a good tutorial that I understand for the life of me. So I am kindly asking if anyone here would be by hero and walk me through the progress.

Basicly what...

Hammer uses BSP and theses exist in Unreal Engine and have for a long time. Don't waste your time with trying to texture them.

They are redundant. Forgot em.

You don't make levels with them anymore. You instead use them to block out levels then you export that into a model editor such as Maya Or Max and begin your artpass.

If you don't know how to model, learn it.

Don't bitch, Don't complain that its to hard, JUST DO IT. MAKE YOUR GAME COME TRUE.
I am a mapper, not a modeler.

Am I correct in assuming you can use meshes to make a house in UDK like how you would use brushes in hammer to make a house?
I would like to know this as well, hammer and source are really dificult to gather info about

If you're lacking any of the pieces in this package I'd make an account and grab these, torrents only cover about a third of the content in this. It's about 530Mb and the offer will probably disappear in a day or so.

Why isn't this in Blender?
I'm having a hard time setting up some lenses in LuxRender, and if it just scattered a couple dozen rays showing me their paths in the viewport, it'd make things so much easier.

Also, the OP image had a string of numbers and letters removed which somebody later told me was to do with a video of a cat getting fucked by a dog.
Is this true?
It's a free program. What you get for that price is pretty amazing, but that's what you get.

Doing test-renders is just part of life, run a low resolution and low samples configuration while you set it up and ramp up when you're ready for finals.
But that doesn't show me the ray paths.

> sculpting mechanic things
This isn't 2008 anymore. Zbrush has plenty of good tools to sculpt hard surface. See >>497890
>game spec art
>quads for deformation/animating
> try baking ngons
>try importing ngons into game engine

Yes, now zbrush has modeling TOOLs that are NOT sculpting.
OP didn't say using zbrush as the only tool. He specifically mentions sculpting.
I can sculpt in Maya, 3D coat, modo etc. but they can't do what I mentioned above.
