One of the myths that still seems to cling to #linux is that you must, absolutely must, use the command line to do anything with it. That's a load of steaming waste.
Using the command line, though, can make certain tasks faster and easier. If you're interested in using the command line, here's a quick intro: https://www.linuxinsider.com/story/84393.html
Woohoo! The full history of the BlenderArtists.org forum will be preserved! Much thanks to such a fantastic #b3d community!
In the last couple of weeks, I've acquired a slightly more than passing interest in knife making. And since I've been learning a bit of silat, I figured I'd use some high density particle board and try to make a training version of a knife that I think is called a sabatan. It actually took longer to figure out how to do the handle wrap than cut and shape the knife.
All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the results. Maybe one day I'll get some metalworking tools and make a real one.
Holy mackerel! Just under 48 hours since it launched and the @BlenderArtists Discourse migration Kickstarter campaign has already hit its first funding goal! The Blender community never ceases to be incredible. Let's see if we can hit the next one!
The forum at BlenderArtists.org is finally going to move to Discourse! But we need your help. There's a lot of data to migrate... and doing so ain't cheap. If we want to keep BA's history, we're all going to need to chip in.
Finished the sword handle. Super proud of the way this one turned out. Inlay of sodalite, aventurine, and turquoise.
This thing really shines when you turn it in light. I have a video, but it's a touch to large to share here.
Lost a great friend this morning. I didn't know you for your whole life, Old Man, but you certainly added to mine. Thank you.
Continued progress on this. Most of the stone inlay of sodalite and aventurine is in place. Still need to add some fill-in stones and fill that infinity symbol.
