The Hulk and Wolverine were portrayed here as 3D character models. Parts of this virtual sculpture were 3D printed to make moulds for creating these superheroes from confectionery. The UK Pastry Club made use of these for their entry to the Coupe Du Monde world cup of pastry making. We’re proud to have this as part of our Zbrush portfolio.

The Mill united with Lush to make a 2-minute film made through biometric information perception – the point being to imagine the physical reaction somebody has to a Lush spa treatment. Basically, transforming biometric information into beautiful graphical animation.

Behind the Scenes: Lush Spa Film from The Mill on Vimeo.

The Lush Spa Experiment was intended to catch biometric information. This information drove a progression of one of a kind and thoughtful representations, which reflect the multisensory encounters of a Lush Spa treatment. The film is a masterful 3D visualisation version of the body’s reaction to the spa treatment.

3ds max error >>> @!&*# <<<25

Solution: I had renamed 3dsmax.exe to 3dsmax.exeold . When I renamed it back again this error message stopped showing. Also if 3dsmax.exe was renamed your shortcuts in windows may point to the wrong file. You need to check that they are pointing to the correctly named one. On my start menu, the 3ds max 2016 icon was aiming at the renamed 3dsmaxrenamed.exe, not 3dsmax.exe when I changed it’s properties the error did not recur. Sometimes needs to be 3dsmax instead of 3dsmax.exe
