Winnitron 1000 NL competition:
WI-FI password = game_jam (but please use LAN if at all possible)
Free option 1:
Have a vinyl cutter create your character in 2D on foil. (looks great when stuck on your laptop or on the fridge)
Free option 2:
Use the Ultimaker (Protospace’s custom-made 3D printer), to create hollow 3D ‘shells’ of one of your models or ‘extrude’ 2D designs in 3D.
If you really want to impress your friends and colleagues, you might like to use the ZCorp 3D printer to create a three dimensional, coloured model. This print will be prepared on Sunday and can be picked up at Protospace’s address at a later date, because printing with this machine is a time-consuming process. Costs range between 15 and 25 euros, depending on the size of your model.
This is all a big experiment for us, (although we assure you there won’t be any explosions involved) but please try to make sure you meet the requirements below if you’d like to participate:
For the vinyl cutter:
– Make sure to use vectors.
– Required file type: .eps, .svg, Illustrator .ai (not compressed).
For the Ultimaker:
– No faces of more than a 45 degrees angle.
– Resolution shouldn’t be too high (to speed up the process).
– For best effect, make sure the model has few protrusions and extensions. Model a pedestal under it to make sure it can stand on its own.
– File type: .stl (not compressed).
For the ZCorp 3D printer:
– Use MiniMagics (FREE SOFTWARE) to check .stl models for inconsistencies.
– For colour exports, use .wrl [VRML] or .3ds file types. For grayscale models, .stl will do.
– Solid objects do not need to be modeled hollow. The Zcorp software does this on its own.
– If you want a hollow model, include a little hole so the remaining printing material can be drained from it.
– Cost per cubic centimeter is 60/70 eurocents.
– Preparation during GGJ on Sunday afternoon, finishing up on Thursday during Protospace’s open hours.
