I have downloaded this model. It works, its nice. But I reiterate, for
under $200 you can buy poser from www.metacreations.com. This program
has libraries of files- men, women, children, dogs, horses, etc.,. you
can save them out as OBJ or DXF files and import them into your favorite
cad for outputting via STL. The files have a lot more detail than this
free model. Ofcourse free is cheaper than $200 but $200 buys you dozens
of models. Check it out. I've been having a blast playing with it.
Any sculptors hidden in the ranks of you engineers? Poser will bring it
out in you, or your kids.
Why heck, if I were a major rp company, I'd get poser to include an stl
output. Then I'd issue coupons with Poser for the first RP model made
with my companiy's machine. Always thinking of popularizing RP!!
