3D Crafter – new version 9.3

After a break of a couple of years, Richard at Amabilis has returned with a new version of 3D Crafter 9.3

The main update is added support for texture baking which makes use of the free POV-Ray software to generate a new bakes texture map.

All my shapeways models didn’t need textures but I thought I’d have a play.

I should probably have chosen a more detailed model but the effect was pretty good on my 1250 scale OSA missile boat:

A couple of small glitches in the texture but looks pretty good. Time to start making models for the simulators again I think.
