3D Design Software – VRClay + Oculus Rift Makes Our Eyeballs Jiggle #3DThursday #3DPrinting

3D Design Software – VRClay + Oculus Rift Makes Our Eyeballs Jiggle, from SolidSmack:

…Using a Sculpting Tool, VRClay allows you to freely sculpt with tools like buildup, pull, push, drag and others to your heart’s delight.

The drool quotient is that it’s compatible with Oculus Rift. So the lucky guy in the video is using VRClay displayed on his Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.

Razer Hydra compatibility sweetens the deal…and as you can see, the handheld Hydra motion controllers look like a nifty dance in motion.

The whole nine yards of creating ‘something out of nothing’ is very exciting; it moves beyond just probing and prodding and into more immersive sculpting territory. Really, it’s one of the more exciting forms of interacting with 3D data we’ve seen in a really (really) long time….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
