New tutorial how to do S3D with Blender

Berlin based Sebastian Schneider did a very welcome online tutorial Stereoscopic Rendering in Blender. I hope to get him on the openKMQ bandwagon soon ;-)

Please create content like this ...

These renderings are done with VRay/3Dmax by a Berlin based artist.

First KMQ book since 1983

A friend of mine allowed me to publish a nice 3-D documentation of a railway bridge beeing replaced. I wrote a program called "StereoBookMaker" to solve this task.
Using SBM you can create your own 3-D books/cards/iPad-Galleries using many different presentation methods. Obviously my favorite 3-D viewing method still is KMQ(over/under), but others are supported as well - excluding all color distorting methods (no Anglyphs!!!)

Here you can preview and order the books : epubli

Why does the new "any LCD" kit have 5 holes ?

An early adopter asked me about the 4 small extra holes in the laser cut acrylic frame of the new kit. Yeah - I forgot to mention that this design is also meant to be mounted on strings infront of over/under paintings and big 3-D prints inkjetted to canvas. Remember - the bigger the picture pair, the bigger the sweet spot distance to view from with the KMQ viewer.
As a local printing service in Berlin/Germany for fine art digital canvas printing I recommend Whitewall.
I'm still looking for digital artists and stereo photographers to exhibit their work in this all new form.

I recommend a bag for the new "iPad 3-D" stand

After traveling to amsterdam for the BLENDER Foundation sponsor/team screening of their new short DURIAN/Sintel I realized that I need a proper and good looking bag for my 3-D stand. And it should have space for my accessories and the iPad as well.

I went to a local shop for designers and sculptors and found this:

Manufacturer: RUMOLD
EAN-No 012108155700

I bought it for 17,90 EUR in Berlin at modulor

openKMQ Kit for any 2D LCD screens

Again: You can either download the laser cutting vector files or order a precut kit from my website.

openKMQ proudly presents : iPad 3-D

Okay, anyone with a KMQ prism viewer can use any LCD in portrait mode to view full color 3-D, but as the viewing distance (the sweet spot) is important, I decided to design a comfortable stand for my Apple iPad. Like all other kits it's laser cut, but it's the first kit made of HDF (high density wood fibre) . Visit my website for more pictures and to download the vector files.
You may also order a precut kit, if you don't know a laser cutting service nearby.
On the other hand, if you know one, feel free to become a kit provider yourself.
I've prepared some 3-D movies to watch on this baby. The trailers for Avatar/Shrek4/Tangled were downloaded from 3D Vision Blog and I used the compositing app eyeon FUSION to produce the over/under layout (right on top).
