I might be able to make something for this one :thinking:

Pure Entry calling it…

" Cue Smithing "

For those that are not sure what a cue lathe looks like this is one of the reference photos I am modeling off of.


Just a question, does texturing on substance class your entry as open? Or is that okay as a pure entry as it is just the texturing stage?

Good theme. might have an idea.

On the Verge

Pure entry: 1000 samples. It’s up on my site


Hi think I got something for this one its right in front of me.
Not alot of texturing to do on it either mostly hard surface modeling :yum::hushed::smirk::grin::drooling_face::scream:.
Built it from parts electronics and all.

It kind of depends on how much of the piece it covers. Pureness is ultimately your call, but the vast majority of the work should be done in Blender for it to be called pure.

Blender is a tool right? :smile:



XD I love it!
Thanks a lot for stealing it though :frowning:

I have a feeling a lot of folks had this idea :joy:

Not sure if I’ll have time for an entry, but I’ll see. Maybe I can knock something out on Sunday.

This is my PURE entry “Best tool”. Blender Cycles 512s. Sculpting, texture painting and bump mapping in huge dose with this. I hope to see creative entries this week.


@3dnotguru nice, think you hit the nail on the head there. :wink: Guess I went too literal with my entry this week. Oh well it is still fun regardless.

You nailed it! Marvelous XD

Very nice.

I’m just going to stop my overcomplicated model of a laptop with Blender on the screen then because you got me beat. :smiley:

Thanks, yeah it seems like a lot of people had this idea, my scene is quite simple so I’m sure you can take it to the next level, good luck. :smile:

Nah seriously, yours is a much better idea than my own. It gets the idea across more creatively and with less fuss and is just a more pleasing image.

Worry not, it’s just that when other people submitted something with similar idea earlier than you the originality wouldn’t feel the same. Still, however, one same idea can be shaped differently. :slightly_smiling_face:
