To apply the custom bevel, do one of the following:
To apply the bevel to an extruded 3D object, select the 3D object, and then double-click the 3D Extrude & Bevel effect in the Appearance panel. ... To apply the custom bevel to 2D artwork, select the 2D object, and then choose Effect > 3D > Extrude & Bevel.
I recently got a copy of the CorelDRAW 7 suite to generate graphics for a laser cutting machine.
I have some very light experience with parametric modeling software(solid-works, Pro-Engineer) but none with graphics software. I want to be able to draw shapes that fit together with box joints such as this pamphlet holder. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:769
is there a function in CorelDRAW that makes this easier? are there programs that can generate templates?
or will I just need to suck it up and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>250217 Wouldn't a program like AutoCAD be better for a laser cutter? I've never used one myself, but if you're looking for accuracy and proper measurements I feel like a technical drawing program like AutoCAD would be better than a more artistic program like CorelDRAW, unless you're doing complicated engravings or something.
What do I add/change about this to make it look better. >my first ever attempt at making a logo >"be a minimalist" >k >tries to but all it does is suck so in general what does separate the good and the bad minimalist works? Should I change the background colour, a detail in the text font, the text itself? I tried combining 2 or 3 fonts that looked bold and sharp ( kind of like the iron maiden band logo but more minimal).
Ok so before you say what you have to say, I looked it through in a bit and noticed: >no personality, that's why I named it a cheap dishwasher logo, because they all look the same > background colour should be bright to compliment the sharper edges >the "e" to "a" distance is nothing like the other ones. Will post a newer one with these mistakes outdone and then ask you what else to add/change. Also, I know minimalism isn't about adding less but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do things like 99designs and swiftly. People usually shit on programs like that but those people usually don't actually have careers in design. It's good practice with real projects and can make you a bit of dough while you build up a portfolio to get real gigs.
does anyone know a good ressource for free mockup-templates?
stumbled upon this: http://blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/latest_news/the-most-extensive-mockup-templates-bundle-of-all-time but its kinda pricey, especially since I dont need 97% of the stuff that is included
These kinds of templates used to view a design in an environment. Not only for business cards, let's say a 3D logo on a wall etc. I'm pretty sure these are plugins either for Illustrator or CorelDRAW, but I can't seem to find any. I usually make a 3D perspective of a BC etc in CorelDRAW, but that consumes too much time and they don't always look as good as.
What are these templates exactly and where do I find any to use with my software?
They're called mockups and they are not plugins. Photoshop is what you want for creating mockups or using mockup templates. Most of the time they are actual studio quality photos of the products (business cards, t-shirts, etc.) like the one in your post, and a layer mask or similar used to apply the design to the object. Of course it varies depending on the application and the design but there are lots of free ones that might be useful. A google search of 'graphic design mockups' will help shed some light on the subject.
>>250854 Fuck it lets have a WACOM thread. I just got an Intuos ART, and it's my first tablet. I feel like a mongoloid doofus with a brain injury trying to operate this thing. Does that feeling go away? I just wanna draw shit, mang.
>>250854 I bought an A4 Wacom Intous 3 way back in 2005, still have it and use it to this day...It's not in great condition, there are scratches on the drawing surface and the pen nibs are all worn down to almost nothing and the USB cable is a little sensitive but functionally it still works perfectly and I still use it to this day. Not bad for some 10 year old tech.
>>250870 It does anon. I have an intuos photo, which I only bought because of the sweet black colour. Lately i've used the for all purposes, switching to a mouse only for gaming. I use the left buttons for Show desktop and Switch application and the right ones for zoom in and out.
Hey /gd/ I'm thinking about making some Youtube videos of Photoshop tutorials (amongst other programs, AutoCAD, Revit, Lumion, Premier etc) I'm the only one in my group of friends that can use Photoshop and they always ask me for help with stuff, so I figure I can just teach them/other people with videos.
Just wondering what you think the best way to go about these tutorials would be. I was thinking about just going through the UI in the first few videos, starting the the tools pallet and then the drop down menus at the top and then the layers/colour/text pallets...

>>251344 >>251344 go with what you feel more comfortable with. check this guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mtv8QptWNbg he had never actually made a tutorial before and now he's over 200 m of views. (the first tutorials he made suck but he got better)
just started using blender and i've made this light saber but it has tons of fire flies in it and increasing sampling size seems to not get rid of many. I'm not trying to do a full render but just wonder if theres a way to get rid of them or reduce them significantly in the render view/test render thing.
thats not the color i originally chose for it btw just wanted to highlight some of the details.
was also wondering if someone could point me to a tutorial that can tell me how to do this kind of spiraling I want to make a hilt like this for one of my other projects. Of even if you know what this is called that would be helpful i've not been searching the right term.
>>251311 This is more of a /3/ thing. But I do 3d as well, so I'll help you. Fireflies generally occur when there's not enough light information, or you're using an hdri (even both sometimes). Increase the amount of samples (as you've done), and increase the size of your lights/ power. It's going to end up a bit brighter than what you'd like out of the box, but you can just fix that using the levels tool in a photo editor.
Also look into clamping, and branched path tracing.

So I have this little animation that I'd like to do, but I'm not sure if it's even possible because of the way I want it.
So, if you look at the picture, those rectangles are actually an erased part of the white layer with a clipping mask, and the red galaxy picture is underneath it.
What I'd like to do is move the erased parts from off screen to on screen, but I want it to have a cool effect where it's actually just the erased part moving, so it's going to scroll (for lack of a better word) over the picture in the background and not...
