I am new here, it seems, I am older than most in DA. I on my third retirement and looking to start a new faze of my life. My youngest child is about to finish there first masters and oldest grand-kid is now in university. I am no longer teaching and taking research grants or students, so my research now is what I am interested in and not what gad students need. I am enjoying the art here in DA, not being a good artist I have an appreciation for the talent on DA. I am impressed with the digital 3D art. My art is 3D printing, CNC machining, foundry and blacksmithing. Up to now I have not had much time for art so DA is my motivation to get back to doing art. I have a CNC router, engraver, plasma cutter and 3D printer. I have just started with 2D to 3D G-CODE conversion. It is taking more time than I thought to learn and it seems that it is going to be a lifetime to make it an art. I have worked with some tattoo artiest around here to take pictures an create full body 3D images. I have not gone as far as to animate them yet.
