I briefly write my story through the years in 3D digital graphics, starting with my finding Carrara in the first place.
Some of My Personal Favorites is a page that will be growing as I get the time to fill it.
It's a page dedicated to some of my favorite content from Daz 3D that I use in Carrara. I thought it would be a helpful showcase of product both legacy and new and everywhere in between that is known to work in Carrara. Helps take some of the guess work out of it.
I'll also try and make notes about the author - some of these content artists have a knack for making things that just plain work - and work well!
Just Getting Started in Carrara?
If you're new to Carrara and would like to read a great "Getting Started" thread about bringing in Genesis for the first time and going on and on from there, I can't recommend this thread enough, by forum member Diomede: No one asked me
Ever want to turn your 3D creations into something tangible? Something useful or even a cool action figure for the desk?
We have a new thread in the Carrara forum all about making this happen!
We also have CREALITY, bringing 3D Printing to us at incredibly reasonable prices!
They even offer upgraded kits!
CREALITY excels at selling 3D Printers for less than $300 USD, and we're talkin' about the famous Ender 3, not the bargain basement brands that just become a big ol' household paperweight!
