CONTENT
In this video you will discover how to create a dragon in Blender 2.79 for 3d printing, as well as take an informative look at procedural material creation with EEVEE realtime engine from within the software itself! The timelapse sections are not included but provide context of what was done while creating each individual element one by one over 30+ hrs worth crafting them into something amazing that can be printed onto any Replicator or other type machine eveywhere imaginable – without limitations because it’s made specifically just for us who have been creative enough already 😉
