3D modelling a breeze

A new software program developed by US-based MetaCreations enables users to easily create photo-realistic 3D models from 2D photos or scanned images, says its Australian distributor, Scholastic New Media.

According to the company, Canoma 1.0 ($999 RRP) uses an "image-assisted modelling" approach, simplifying and speeding-up what was once a time-consuming practice to create 3D models.

Canoma allows users to edit images in perspective and create interactive photo-realistic 3D images for use on the Web such as product catalogues and real estate Web sites.

Canoma works seamlessly with MetaCreations' other products such as Kai's Power Tools 5 and 3D modelling and animation programs such as Poser 3 and Ray Dream Studio 5.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
