    Would this work? Massive beech wood, made from smaller pieces glued together ("stabverleimt", not sure how to say that in English). Had some of it previously in the kitchen what it's destined for, but could imagine it also works for building other furniture. Length, thickness cover what you said above, only width I don't know but this standard measure is produced in such masses that prices are kept in check. Two pieces set you back by about 200 EUR then.

    Absolutely love it!
    Same with this:
    upload_2018-12-11_23-43-49.
    and this:
    upload_2018-12-11_23-44-40.
    or even this:
    upload_2018-12-11_23-45-45.
    Just google "steampunk table" and you will get a firework of creative ideas ;-)
    I love all this steampunk art. But at the bottom of my heart I am a purist. I tend to Bauhaus style: simple, functional, easy to manufacture, classy materials. Stylish even ...

    Finally it's a task of my ability to deliver good quality to avoid a look of hobby works ... I worked with wood (especially red beech) far in the past and made things like this:
    upload_2018-12-12_0-19-50.
    upload_2018-12-12_0-20-33.
    But at this time I had my own workshop with machines. Now I have no machines. And it's hard to make quality products without them.
    But I want high quality for our living room. No more IKEA and other cheap products. We turn into the last curve before home straight of our lifes. Time to make it a bit more stylish. Even if it is expensive.

    Yes, absolutely. If I decide to build my own lowboard I will use such offers. Would expand the fiscal frame for the aluminium parts dramatically. Thank you!

    Awesome! My Great Uncle used to make wooden toys like that too. Impressive stuff!

    YES! I GOT THE FIGURE!
    upload_2018-12-14_16-53-47.
    This will be a terrible job! I have no clue if I'll be able to make it. The figur should be at 1:2 scale. Wich is 700 mm high.

    Make her lifesize while your wife is asleep, and put it right next to her side of the bed!

    LOL! Lifesize is too big for our flat unfortunately. I showed the 3D-model and how tall it'll be to my wife.
    Wife: "This one won't stand in our living room, will it?"
    Me: "Hmmmm ..."
    Wife: "Oh shit! It will?"
    Me: "Why not?"
    Wife: *rolls eyes*

    Let's see. I assume at the bottom of her heart she is at least a little bit proud to own such artworks of her husband ;-) Well, the original artwork was done by an unknown artist who made the drawing and my modeler Igor. But I am the one who make it possible that it will become real.

    For now: I love it sooooooo much to print big figures:

  10. Jamira get on your wife’s good side by making her a model of Bulli. :)

    LOL! I had the plan to build a Revell T3 Bulli long time ago. But ... she loved the real Bulli which you can enter and drive it ;-)

    Well, I ordered some steel pipes of 9mm diameter for the legs of the chair. I have to make a part for bending them.

    Yep! Ordered a beech lowboard.

    No more trouble with building my own one. Puhhh! I can relax and print figures which disturb old Narfi ;-)

    There's plumber tools for that. They use them for bending copper pipes. Usually the pipe is heated first, and then put into a device that's basically two pieces that combine together. There's 1 piece that pushes the heated part of the pipe, with the second one having a sort of a guidance rail that can control the angle.

    Look on Amazon.de for copper pipe bender. They start at around 11 EUR.

    Hey, there are 4 bends only. And I don't plan to start a chair manufacture ;-)

    I found an interesting link today to "Character Creator 3":
    https://www.reallusion.com/character-creator/production.html
    30-days-trial and 149,00 Euro purchase. As usual all the videos look good and 149 Euro isn't that much. Reason enough to test it.
    First experiances:
    • I had to make an account at Reallusion Hub. :-(
    • The installation writes parts of the software to my nearly full drive C: and I couldn't change it. :-(
    • Installation without further problems. :-)
    • No support for my 3Dconnexion Space Navigator. :-((
    • Export as OBJ is possible (limited to 10 attempts in the trial version). :-)
    • CC3 has comparable problems with knees as Poser. :-((
    • Biggest issue was the export. :-(((
    I exported this model as OBJ and imported it into Rhino:
    upload_2018-12-17_22-40-1.
    I got this:
    upload_2018-12-17_22-41-13.
    Hmm ... :-((

    The last point is materially important for me. If an export of poses isn't possible, there is no need for further tests.

    2nd try. Export as FBX from CC3 ...
    upload_2018-12-17_23-13-37.
    ... and import into Rhino:
    upload_2018-12-17_23-15-22.
    Crazy: Her pants, shirt and hair are there. But it seems the texture doesn't work. I've never ever seen such an effect in Rhino.

    Hmm, import doesn't work as well for me. I bought a pair of high heels for my current project at Turbosquid and sent it to Igor:
    upload_2018-12-18_0-6-39.
    He could use them in Zbrush. But in CC3 the only way to import is to generate an FBX and import it. And it doesn't work because Rhino doesn't generate a "Decrypt Key File" *roll eyes*
    upload_2018-12-18_0-10-24.
    It seems, this was a very short test ;-)
    Finally I tested Autodesk FBX converter:
    upload_2018-12-18_0-23-32.
    Okay, enough. I will uninstall this software.

    Not to speak about the legs of the chair. 4 steel parts + 4 small feet.
