Ruye is a super talented 3D and motion designer with a rich portfolio of commercial and personal projects. I am a fan of personal projects as you might already know, so of course I tend to get quite excited when I see other folks doing incredible work as a side gig. That’s what Ruye did with this set of foam exploration using Houdini and Cinema 4D. Simply awesome!
Yanis Georges (ethikdesign©) shared another amazing 3D project, this time inspired by one of my favorite artists, Mondrian. Mondrian 3.0 is a nod to the Dutch pioneer of 20thcentury abstract art. But whereas the father of Modernism limited his visual vocabulary to three primary colours, Yanis, has set aside any such formalism in his palette.
Ian Frederick shared a 3D project that is an experimental art piece created as a method for him to learn Houdini, specifically its cloth and soft body system called Vellum. “It started out as just seeing if I could model a good looking octopus tentacle.

Brígida Lourenço Guerreiro and the folks over at KOBU Agency shared a really cool 3D project exploring glass texture and typography. The project from my understanding was created to celebrate KOBU Foundry’s first anniversary.
João Teixeira shared another beautiful industrial design project fully rendered in 3D using Blender. Minimal yet sophisticated, and slim were some of the keywords while designing the Loop desk. The name derives from the way the monitor stand is designed, looping all around the table top in a seamless way. This design was motivated by the way most people have been working from home due to lockdowns, enhancing the workspace and making it more friendly and productive.

João Teixeira shared a really beautiful industrial design project. Ben coffee table was designed specifically for 3D modeling purposes, Mr. Teixeira wanted to test a new way to simulate welding on Blender so he was motivated to design an object in which he could experiment. In short words, Ben is a basic and simple table, its metal structure is CNC bended and the pieces all welded together. Both table tops are CNC milled. “I aimed for industrial processes that could guarantee ease of production and precision.
Vinicius Araújo shared a personal 3D project experimenting with textures and materials with Cinema 4D and Octane Render. The project is titled Molecular Food recreates very minimal compositions playing with food. The result is quite inspiring.
