  1. Hi Over the course of the past month I've been learning the basics of LDD, LeoCad and Blender to make a Minifig portrait of friends. My first attempt turned out pretty good, so I've decided to do some more for other friends and family. I use LDD to make the models, then export to LeoCad to tweak and then export to Blender to render the final image. The first couple have gone okay, but I've hit a problem that I can't get around. I've searched the web and mostly this forum but as a novice I may be looking in the wrong place. Exporting from LDD there are some pieces that are not in the LeoCad library. I've tracked down some pieces and added to my library successfully, but it seems some head and torsos are missing and I can't find them anywhere. (See image below) How can I get around this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. There’s another celebration again! Today is Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice). It is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ishmael, as an act of obedience to Allah’s (God’s) command. Before he sacrificed his son, God intervened by sending his angel Jibrīl who then put a ram in his son’s place. In commemoration of this, an animal is sacrificed (know more in Wikipedia). As a Muslim, I celebrate it too in real life and in LEGO. The model I’m gonna show to celebrate this occasion is a Minecraft scene with a pen, some animals, a house, and completed with Minecraft style background. Happy Eid al-Adha 2017! by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr I’m not a Minecraft gamer. The model is done by searching for a reference on the internet, so I’m sorry if I made some inaccuracies in the render. Anyway, it always fun to create a model in a selected theme that you haven’t make or know about it.
  3. I'm back again with new MOC! This is a "Military Half-Track Truck". The model is about 20-studs long, about 18-bricks tall, and 8-studs wide (about 10-studs with tires and tracks). The model also features, articulated steering and suspension, front pendular suspension, rear track suspension, openable bed, and interior. Though it has an interior, but it can't fit any minifig. Half-Track Truck - Front by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Anyway, this model was originally built for Dgustafsson13's 10K Building Competition. And you can read some more information and renders in my Blog!
  4. [MOC] Glorious Indonesia!

    Marking 72 years of being an independent nation, this August 17th is a day that will be celebrated by Indonesian people, and so I am. I tried to replicate the Jayawijaya mountain and put a small Indonesian flag in the top of it. So here it is. I think I've done a great job on creating this. Glorious Indonesia! (Indonesia Jaya!) by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr See a blog post on DigiBrickz.com!
  5. Hello LEGO® fans, I like to post my latest research test. I started 2014 with Modo and LDRaw and passed my ideas and results to Nicolas 'SCRUBS' Jarraud, the french genius who gave us Mecabricks, and he developed a very nice Blender addon what gives us access to high-end renderings out of the box. A long time I ignored Blender but since last year we switched to this impressive open source application for my animation studio pipeline. Therefore I started to learn Blender and it's worth any minute because this is really a serious competitor for all other commercial 3d applications. Just the fact that Blender is a 108MB ZIP archive and starts in a second makes it very special. It has everything you need for animation and visual effects. I am not a Blender professional yet because I am running my studio as a CEO and actually I started an upcoming professorship at a private university. And I have a family with two kids. So it's a miracle that I am posting here. :-D Rendering Digital LEGO® is my personal project called Renderbricks what brought back all my passion for 3d. I wished the day had 48 hours. Due to my activities with Renderbricks I try to post constantly work starting with Facebook, updating flickr, posting on Twitter and adding to ArtStation to get as much attention and followers as possible. This is a time consuming process what needs a lot of patience and energy to keep the project running. And three years later now I will have a call with The LEGO Group next week because an Innovation Director is interested in my work. I am excited. :-) With Renderbricks I am also in touch with a lot of nice people. Actually a programmer is developing a Modo importer for LDRaw what looks very promising. I am also in chat with GitHub user TobyLobster who developed ImportLdraw for Blender. This addon is really fantastic. And I have a lot of contacts to MOC designer but of course I can't render everything. Researching LEGO® never ends. Here's another stress test with Blender. And I am impressed again about this open source software what beats most commercial competitiors in many aspects. This amazing LEGO® ISD Aggressor model by Matthew 'raskolnikov' Benner has 14.531 parts with instances and 56.489.080 triangles in Blender. The scene size is compressed saved only 91.306 MB. The render size is 15.360 x 8.640 pixel (15K). CPU Render time on a Dual Xeon 12 core is 2h 13min only with the latest Blender build and the Denoiser. This is really insanely fast. The key here is the new Denoiser technology in the latest 2.79 release what helps to keep samples low at 64 in Branched Path mode. The performance of the Blender scene is amazing. Compared to Modo much faster overall. No refresh issues. Real time handling here on my DELL with GTX 780. Fast loading and saving. And here all bricks have real bevels. In Modo they use a rounded edge shader. I guess the plastic material needs a bit more SSS because the Modo results look a bit better actually. I have ordered two GTX 1080Ti Founder's Edition to speed this up :-) Here you can download a wallpaper for your specific screen. Click on the picture and click again too zoom at 100% to enjoy the 15K details.
  6. I'm in the middle of learning Blender, but I stumbled upon Poliigon and was blown away. I'd really like something to aspire to once I've got a grasp on the basics, so has anyone tried applying a Poliigon texture to a Lego render of any sort?
  7. Today, or maybe yesterday was July 17, and that is the date for World Emoji Day. So I'm gonna celebrate it on my own style, by using LEGO! Celebrating #WorldEmojiDay with LEGO by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr This emoji artwork is rendered using Blender freestyle and I used an orthographic camera to get the best perspective of it. The emojis are just randomly putted, but I focused for the happy emoji to be in the middle of all the Emojis, you want to always be happy right?
  8. Hello, A couple of years ago I created a script for Blender in order to easily make photorealistic renders of Mecabricks models. It has been improved a lot over the years and it is now a proper Blender Add-on. Once it is installed, you can import models in any of your existing Blender scenes simply by going in the menu File > import > Mecabricks. It automatically handles decorated parts e.g. printed pearl, chrome or transparent pieces as well as stickers. You can get the free version here http://www.mecabricks.com/fr/shop/product/2 The image below has been made using the latest version of this add-on.
  9. Peaceful Ramadhan...

    Ramadhan is an Islamic month, it’s a special month where every muslims are fasting. It already started about 2 weeks ago so maybe it’s a little late to celebrate it but it’s not a problem right? As a celebration, I created an interior scene. So this is what I came up: Peaceful Ramadhan... by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr It was rendered using Blender via Mecabricks..
  10. Mecabricks has come a long way since I started this webapp about 5 years ago. Its popularity has been boosted by the introduction of the export function to multiple 3D formats and a script to easily make good renders with Blender. In 2017 here is what we can achieve in a few clicks without knowing much about 3D: I rendered a low resolution myself that took 9 hours to render on a iMac core i5 and Renderbricks helped me for this 1080p version. I think it was about 4 or 5 min per frame. This has been made possible thanks to the development version of Blender that includes a new denoiser. Even if it has limitation it is already awesome. I also need to thank Stas who is a decoration guru on Mecabricks. He made hundreds if not thousands of them including the ones for this Speed Champion Ferrari.
  11. Creating Tiny Turbo MOC is a great way to design a LEGO Car, it's small and you can add so many details on it. I've done some Tiny Turbos MOCs, so here it is... Let's start with my very first Tiny Turbo creation, Orcar: Orca Car: Orcar by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr The second one, a Hatchback Racer: Hatchback Racer by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Then get low with this Slance, Slammed or Stanced Car: Slance by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Got into a concept theme, a Concept Buggy and it's ready for Off-Roading!

  14. I was wondering if anyone has tried exporting files from stud.io and importing them into Blender and if you were successful. The main reason I use LDraw is to create stuff I use in Blender, and Stud.io looks interesting. But if it doesn't work with Blender there is no point in me using it. Also, if I get around to creating LDraw parts and I use Stud.io, then I wouldn't be able to use those either? I read that Stud.io uses the LDraw libraries so it should work... Thanks!

  21. Monas is a Local Landmark of Jakarta, Indonesia. Inspired by this Yul Burman Karel’s Monas MOC, but I redesigned it. Monas by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr I actually want to make this model for join this "Local Landmarks contest" in this forum, but the rules state: “All entries are to include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, or digital entries allowed.”, Sadly, I don’t have all the part that need to create this model, though all the parts are exist in real life. Well, at least this could be an addition to my (digital) creations.
