Just a quick posting to keep everyone up-to date on things here at 4m3D.
We have been very busy over the last few months working on a very diverse mix of projects. Being so busy we have found it hard to keep this blog up-to date. In the future we are only going to post here once a month, but if you want to keep up with what is going on here on a more continuous basis please check us out on Twitter – http://twitter.com/4m3d.
Many of you know that over the last few years we have been creating some of the content that is for sale on the VectorArt3D site. VectorArt3D will be at the AWFS show in Las Vegas in early July and if you are in that neck of the woods, please make sure you stop in and see what exciting new thigs they have been up to. We will be at the show aswell as a visitor… If you see us please stop us and say “HI”.
The 2 images below are relief models created for customers… and they seem to share a common theme.
Thanks again for taking a few seconds to read our posting and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter!!!!

It should not be any surprise to our customers that 4m3D Creative Design has the ability to create either a small part of a final project or the entire finished piece. The following examples are of recent projects we have work on… one is just a single element and the other the full finished 3D model used in production.
The first example is a bas-relief puppy that was created from a picture submitted by our customer. This relief was created in ArtCAM and exported as an STL model that will then be imported into the customers software. The puppy will be added to a final ring project as the focal point in the center of the rings head. This customer is not using ArtCAM so this is a perfect example of how we can provide our customers with models that will be compatible with may different pieces of software.
This next example is of a ring created in ArtCAM JewelSmith. Our customer is using JewelSmith so we only needed to provide them the file so they could create the toolpaths and machine the final parts. This ring was machined in two parts; the shank, and then the top. We did this for several reasons, the 2 most important being to decrease the final weight and the other to increase the finished detail on the top.
In both cases the customer was very happy with the submitted models and the final recipient of the police ring was very proud.
That is it for this posting. Please feel free to leave comments or ideas for future postings.
Don’t forget to visit our official website for more examples of our work and customer testimonials.
Thanks for reading…

It has been almost 2 years that 4m3D Creative Design has been using a “free” WordPress blog as its home on the web. We felt 2009 would be a good time to roll out a brand new site. Over the last few months we have been working to get all of the bugs worked out and it polished to the point we could go live with it.
The new 4m3D Creative Design
website has it’s own home on the web and we will be using this site (4m3d.wordpress.com
) as a true blog. We are hoping to post, once a month, projects we are working on, tips and tricks (focused on the software we use daily), reviews of software we think is useful, general thoughts about the industry and any other information for creative designers.
We would like to invite you take a look at the new 4m3D site and share you impressions with us (click the image of the new site above to open the site).
Thanks for reading… and stay tuned for, what we hope will be, some great content!

We seemed to have gotten busy and haven’t had time to update you on what we have been up to. We thought we might just toss up some images of a few of our 2008 projects….
There have been many more, so look out for future postings….

Happy New Year to you all.
We hope that last year was good to you and that this year will be even better!
Our last posting was in early September of 2007 for many reasons. This posting will included projects that were completed earlier in the year and after September.
First off we have a cross completed for Marc Alonso.
Next we have severial building completed for Carve3D and VectorArt3D. These models were used for either chocolate molds or added as carvings on signs.
The next 4 models were created for VectorArt3D and one of their clients. These have been carved into a wood sign and are now hanging in the Pepsi Center in Denver CO.
Unfortunately we can not show you all of the projects we have worked on because of agreements we have signed with our customers.
On another note our Head Creative Designer and Owner, Todd Bailey, now has a profile on the VectorArt3Dwebsite that tells a little about him and also links you to all of the 3D clip-art he has for sale in their catalogue. Keep checking back over 2008 for new additions.
We would like to send a special Thank You out to all of our customers in 2007 and we hope to see you again in 2008.
Happy and safe 2008 to you all!

This was an interesting project done for a Jeweler in San Antanio, Texas.
Mark Alonso, owner of ACTS Jewelry, wanted to create a cross with a karate figure on it to be sold in his store and on his web site. Mark already has created the cross so we were commisioned to create the figure.
We were give a few images and artistic licence to make the model.
We are looking forward to seeing it on his site!
