Combining the spy mythology and bold aesthetics of the 1950's and 1960's and set during the Cold War, CounterSpy™ focuses on the rogue third spy agency, C.O.U.N.T.E.R., that keeps the world's super powers at bay. Just as each side of the ongoing conflict gets close to unleashing a blow of earthshaking proportions, C.O.U.N.T.E.R. jumps into action, stealthily sabotaging their dastardly plans and deceptively maintaining world peace.
Sounds kinda cool to me!
We were actually sent a hi-poly 3d model of the main character "Agent Chevalier"
One of my other closet passions is finding the right software that can make our lives easier! I spend a great deal of time online, downloading software, running trial versions, blah, blah. All in attempts to find packages that will ultimately serve us for the better. One amazing little gem is "STL Slicer" This originally came as a plug-in for the Carvewright cnc software. But I feel single hand-idly responsible for contacting them, relentlessly, and getting them to release it as a standalone application. Which they did! WOO-HOO!
The beauty of this simple application, is that it lets you slice 3d STL files with a cut plane. Ultimately making a model like this better suited for 3d CNC machining. The best part of this package is the drag and drop model tree. Simply meaning, that if I slice a model incorrectly, I can drag the parts together, and they self-heal, like it was never cut at all!
As great as the software is, it still doesn't do it for you! So this meant a full day of slicing for me. I fancy myself as being a pretty smart cat, but sometimes I would get myself backed into a proverbial corner. Ultimately having to re-think my slicing strategy, to allow the most efficient, and cleanly machined parts at the cnc end. We had to stay true to the geometry, and this means as little hand shaping as possible after the routing!
