DMA344: Metalocalypse 3D Animated Logo

After a couple mishaps with the previous versions I finished my Metalocalypse animation last night. Sitting in the TEL Building open lab, so much has changed since I was last here. Glad to see that the freedom toaster is still around ๐Ÿ™‚



Off to follow a tutorial on svn now.. Oh and before I forget, I’ll be at FlashinTO tonight, doing sign ups and such. Anyone reading this should stop by, free beer and pizza.. Need I say more? ๐Ÿ˜‰

PHP Calculator

So I was bored earlier this week and tweeted that I had finished the calculator for dma322. Which is available here:

I was going through some files to try and free up space 20 minutes ago and remembered I had attempted to make my own calculator a couple weeks ago. Opened up the file and made it work! Give it a try ๐Ÿ˜€

Update on February 12th: On Monday I came up with a fix to mostly everyones problem with using header location in the calculator script. Meta refresh! I actually walked over to Crisp and told him I had a fix that is working for everyone I’ve helped so far. So he let me add it in on his computer. After that he asked what I knew about php and other things that we will be learning in his class. I know them all, and have installed them at one time or another. Showed him my picture site that I haven’t updated in ions. He liked it and the design I used from zenphotos vast selection of themes.. When I say vast I mean few.. I wish they had themes like WordPress does.. But meh. As far as I know I’ll be getting an advanced standing in dma322 and will be the only lab monitor. Not sure if I have to wear that horrendous lab monitor shirt or not. Hoping I don’t have to. Then there’s the question of compensation, not sure what’s happening with that either.. All will be revealed Monday!

DMA344: Metalocalypse 3D Logo Assignment

For 3D Class we had to take a 2D logo and make it 3D. I originally wanted to do the Deadmau5 logo but it was around 5 or so shapes and was too easy. So I kept searching and eventually came across the Metalocalypse Logo. Sent it to the prof. Gavin and got the go ahead. Worked on it over a span of a week and just last night started adding the bevels and textures.
Since it was a snow day today, I, after shoveling snow tackled the words “Metalocalypse” that go above the logo. That took about an hour or so to get perfect. Had to redo the M as it wouldn’t fill properly even after welding everything twice..

Then about two hours ago I was reading over the pdf to make sure I got everything and forgot that the letters should use an extrude instead of a bevel.. Changed them all to extrude and it looks better. Solved a problem I had too.. You’ll notice it in the gallery below. Even if you don’t, I pointed it out.

Off to shave and then it’s straight to bed. Have to be up at 6:20am for work..
