“Teddy is a Java-Applet Drawing Program that takes the 2D images you draw and renders them in 3D. The alogrithm adds shading according to the strokes and connections between the lines. This is truly a cool program for anyone and everyone!”
saw this on digg, watched the video, pretty sweet stuff.
Cool, I’ve just gotten a new graphic tablet and this would be PERFECT for me to practice
Yeah, defenitely an incredible app. I’m trying it out right now. There is a new version called smoothteddy where you can paint the models directly too btw
Great! I saw the sigraph demo but was waiting for the prog to play with.
I’ve tried it out and it is a pretty cool idea but this program have issues when u try to cut away parts that have already been cut in another angle. also the “sketch” rendering makes it hard to see the whole thing properly. I’ll del the teddy program for now and wait till it get updated and fixed.
This program is awesome, i cant wait for my Graphics tablet to arrive in the post!
I tried it a few years ago. It’s old, but still a nice app to play with.
It works greatly also in Linux, if you have java installed (despite the fact they say it’s designed for Windows).
java -jar teddy.jar is the console command for Linux users.
The interesting thing is that it saves in obj format, so you can import it in Blender.
The resulting mesh is a bit messy, but it works!
Here’s a strange mushroom that i made with it, imported in Blender “as it is”.
Funny stuff, thanks Artaures!
