ProFantasy, who make the Campaign Cartographer CAD mapping software, suitable for fantasy and science-fiction RPG mapping (as well as many other styles of map), has been upgrading all its software over the last few years to match its upgraded main program, now called "Campaign Cartographer 3+". The last of the add-on software packages has just been released, "Dioramas 3", which allows you to relatively easily create 3D external paper building models for home printing and gaming use, in whatever scale you need. As part of the publicity for this, the company's released two PDF sets created using Dioramas 3, which you can freely download from their website. One is a Sage's Tower, the other a Village House with a Church and Tower.
You can find links to both sets from this blog posting, while you can find out more about the Dioramas 3 software here.
Do note though that Dioramas 3 is NOT a piece of standalone software. You must also own and have installed the Campaign Cartographer 3+ software to run it. For those of us with less than ideal artistic skills and computer knowhow, CC3+ is certainly a real boon, along with its numerous other add-ons!

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
