3D Printing with Bees

Thu Jun 12, 2014, 11:41 AM


Dewars-honey-bees-11 by danlev

How awesome is this? Dewar's (the whiskey brand) created an ad campaign that used bees as a "3D printer" ...or as they called it "3-B printing." They created shells of the sculpture they wanted to create and let 80,000 bees loose inside of it. Over time, the bees created beautiful honeycomb sculptures.

Watch:



Nice work Dewar's and the agencies behind the campaign, Sid Lee New York and The Ebeling Group!

With over 1.5 million comments posted per day, deviantART's commenting system provides the backbone for fostering relationships across the globe. Whether mentoring one another, providing artistic support, or checking in with a friend, commenting is one of the site's most used and loved features.


To highlight this vital aspect of community interaction and provide more control around conversations, we’re proud to release the first in a series of improvements to comments.


Featured



The Featured comments option allows deviants to showcase the most meaningful or interesting feedback they’ve received — helping those comments stand out from the rest. When someone leaves a feature-worthy reply on one of your deviations, you can now highlight that comment from the pencil menu.


Featured comments on deviations are highlighted and denoted with a special label.


Edit



Whether it’s a flubbed letter or simple misspelling, embarrassing typos happen to us all. With the ability to edit comments, you can now avoid awkward follow-up explanations. Located in the pencil menu, the “Edit Comment” feature allows you to update a reply you’ve posted in the last 24 hours.


Edited comments are denoted by an “Edited” label next to the timestamp. Clicking the timestamp will display a log of changes made.


Hide



To withdraw a comment you’ve previously posted, use the pencil menu’s “Hide Comment” option. This will remove your comment from view, remove it from the Message Center, and prevent it from getting replies, effectively erasing the comment from conversation.

Comments can be hidden by their owner at any time — there is no time restriction on this feature.


Looking Ahead


The Featured, Edit, and Hide improvements are the first in a larger comments revamp still to come.  This update could include anything from up-voted comments to comment sorting, and much more. You tell us what you've always wanted out of a comment box! Revitalizing our comments system is the first step of many to elevate conversations and foster meaningful connections.



Get started!

Have you received a noteworthy comment on a deviation or Journal? Mark it as Featured and share the comment link here. We want to see the comments you value most, and what you feel is worthy of attention!

  • In Porftolio descriptions, text that contained quotes and apostrophes would not display correctly. Fixed lepidosteus
  • Navigation buttons were not always shown on Sta.sh documents when that item's owner viewed them via direct link. Fixed drommk
  • The "Click here to browse comments in flat view" link displayed on areas with a large amount of comments did not work on the deviations page. Fixed by duraseb
  • Clicking the "Next" and "Previous" buttons in a Sta.sh stack would only work for the first click. Fixed by elhsmart

deviantART muro

  • The Undo button now be used up to 10 times. Changed by mudimba

  • When editing the description of a stack within a stack in Sta.sh, the Add Media tool would not open. Fixed by inazar

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say:
  • Feedback regarding the release of additional CSS options for Journal Skins was positive.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, some deviants mentioned trying out Way Back browsing a few times, while others said they had never tried using Way Back. For those who said they had used Way Back, they mentioned using it to find very specific deviations.

Discuss!

We're proud to announce a new integration with Verold, a platform for artists to upload their 3D work and publish it to the Web. Verold's viewer is now integrated into deviantART Journals, giving you the ability to showcase your 3D art.

Verold offers artists a number of tools to collaborate in real time on the Web, add textures, and set up 3D scenes. Verold also supports limited animation, letting you bring your character or scene to life.

Verold's viewer works on most modern browsers without any plugins, as well as on modern mobile phones.



Uploading Your 3D Art To Verold


To get started, sign up for a Verold account and then upload your models and textures.

Learn how to upload your 3D art to Verold
.


How To Embed Verold In Your Journal 


After uploading your work to Verold, sharing it on deviantART is easy. Simply copy and paste a Verold URL (e.g.: studio.verold.com/projects/53003e790bc9ea02000002ab) into your deviantART Journal and it will automatically embed the Verold viewer to let your audience interact with your 3D creations. 

Examples

Have you tried Verold yet?  Share your Journals or Verold links in the comments!  Do you know any deviants who specialize in 3D art that you've love to see take advantage of Verold?  Mention them in the comments to let them know about this new feature!

Let us know what integrations you'd like to see next!



DeviantART is proud to announce a new partnership with 3D web publishing service, Sketchfab!

Sketchfab, a leading platform to publish, share, and embed interactive 3D content, allows you to bring your 3D artwork to life in real-time without a plugin.


Fella by AlphaPrimeSaviour

Read Sketchfab's announcement

Integrate 3D Models Into Your Journals


Deviants can now embed 3D models into deviantART Journals using Sketchfab embeds.  DeviantART is always aiming to make content on the site more engaging and interactive, and this integration benefits both creators and those who enjoy browsing incredible content.

Sketchfab is not just for the creators; the platform is helping to unlock incredible 3D content, while creating a new form of online media that anyone can browse and enjoy.

3D artists often share the models behind their final renderings or the progress work on their designs. Using our integration with Sketchfab, artists can now create Journals so that their audience can really see the 3D work that goes into their deviations.


How It Works


To embed your Sketchfab creations into a Journal, create a free Sketchfab account and upload a 3D model in one of Sketchfab's 27 supported formats. After you've finished uploading, simply copy and paste the embed code into your Journal.



Learn more about uploading to Sketchfab

Show us how you're using it!


If you share your 3D creations using our Sketchfab integration, leave a link in the comments, share it in the Sketchfab-3D Group, or tweet it to Sketchfab and deviantART using the #dA3D hashtag.

With the large 3D community on deviantART, we feel that deviants will really benefit from seeing 3D work in a whole new way on deviantART.

This is just the start. More Sta.sh integrations are on the way!

Natalia Poklonskaya, the attractive new attorney general of Crimea (Ukraine) has become the newest internet sensation after a video of her at a press conference went viral. Her looks gained her the attention of the internet, and artists — many of them on deviantART — began creating fan art of her.
"With many eyes turned to Ukraine, Poklonskaya’s face was plastered across international media, eventually reaching China and Japan, where she became an icon to many cartoonists and animators struck by her beauty"

Premium Members can now use Google Analytics to get meaningful insight about the traffic to their deviantART Profile! Using our new Google Analytics integration, you can access comprehensive statistics about your audience, traffic, and art.

Learn more about how you can benefit from Google Analytics on you deviantART Profile.


Set Up Analytics For Your Profile


To set up Google Analytics for your profile, you will need to allow Google Analytics to start tracking your profile:
  1. Visit the new "Google Analytics" near the bottom of your General Settings
  2. Click "Where do I find my Analytics ID?" and follow the instructions on how to set up your Google Analytics account.
  3. Follow the instructions on how to find your Google Analytics Tracking ID.
  4. Insert your Tracking ID and click save. Google Analytics is now tracking your profile!
  5. Visit Google Analytics. (Note that Google Analytics' default date range is set to yesterday. You'll have to adjust the date range if you want to see data from today.)
    

Confirm That It's Tracking


To confirm that it's properly recording your traffic, click the "Reporting" tab on the top of Google Analytics and then either 1) select "Real-Time" in the left navigation of Google Analytics to see live traffic stats 2) on the top right of any report, change the date range to include today.

Checkga Copy by danlev



Important Things To Note

  • Past traffic data will not be available; you will only be able to see traffic recorded after you have enabled the feature.
  • A Premium Membership is required to use Google Analytics. Tracking will only be enabled for the length of your Premium Membership.
  • Not all Google Analytics features will be available with our integration, including: Demographics, Interests, Search Engine Optimization, and In-Page Analytics.

Note that Google Analytics is a powerful tool that can take some time to learn if you have never used the platform. If you have specific questions about how Analytics works, you can use Google's Help Center, which is accessible from the "help" menu while signed in.


Premium Members can now use Google Analytics to get meaningful insight about the traffic to their deviantART Profile! Using our new Google Analytics integration, you can access comprehensive statistics about your audience, traffic, and art.



Get Deeper Insight Into Your deviantART Traffic

By enabling the feature on your profile, you can now use Google Analytics to get a better grasp on the deviantART experience that you’ve created for your audience!

  • Understand what types of people are organically drawn to your work. Where do they live? How long are they on your page?
  • See the impact of the marketing you do outside of deviantART. When you share your deviantART work and links in other networks and sites, you’ll be able to track the traffic back to your Journals, Gallery, Profile, and much more!
  • Understand what your visitors are looking at when they’re on your Profile and even for how long! Sometimes visitor trends are unclear until you can see the bigger picture.
  • Evaluate the difference in attention you get for some types of work versus others.
  • See a direct correlation between your marketing activities to deviation submissions and spikes in traffic to your Journals, artwork, or Profile pages.



Learn More About Your Audience 

Knowing who is engaging with your Profile can help you make decisions about where to hang out, what Groups to join, and other things you might want to share with your audience.



Watch Realtime Activity Flow To Your Profile

Google's realtime reports allow you to sit back and watch activity happening on your content right this second.


View Traffic Stats For Your Content

Google Analytics allows you to dive into traffic stats for deviations, Journals, Galleries, Collections, and other areas of your Profile Page. See which deviations are the most popular today and find out where that traffic is coming from.



Track and Analyze Your Watches and Favourites

Our Google Analytics integration tracks when someone watches or adds your artwork to their favourites, allowing you to view charts and statistics of these events. How many favourites did Reddit traffic give you this week? How many new watchers did you gain last weekend after submitting your newest deviation? Did you gain more watchers this month or last month?

Favourites and Watches are available under Google Analytics' "Events" reports. 



...And A Ton Of Other Reports

Here's just a sample of some of the stats you can see:

  • Traffic charts, graphs, and statistics by date
  • Traffic demographics (geographic locations, languages...)
  • Visitor stats (new visitors, returning visitors, time spent on pages, number of pages viewed, bounce rates...)
  • Top sites and social networks sending you traffic and, for some social networks, the individual posts that are linking to your content
  • Search engine keywords people are using to find your Profile Page and content



Measure How Your Activity Impacts Your Audience Growth

Google Analytics can help you make decisions on how you manage your deviations. It can also allow you to see the impact of your on site activities.

  • If you find that your audience is more active on certain days or times, you’ll be able to determine a schedule for posting new art or Journals.

  • Perhaps you’ll find that the more you comment, the more you see your pageviews and watch list jump.
  • If commenting, and critiquing others’ artwork for example, helps increase the level of activity on your Profile, perhaps you’ll decide to do this more frequently.

Pageviews by danlev

As of today, we've updated the way Profile pageviews are counted for deviants and Groups.


Many years ago, we expanded the pageview counter to include not just the front page of your Profile, but also the Journals tab and the Prints tab (but not individual Journals or Prints). We mistakenly never expanded the count to other areas of the Profile.


This has been inconsistent for quite some time and we haven’t been transparent about what exactly this counter included.  


Starting today, the pageview counter will begin including pageviews to all sections of your Profile, including:

  • Gallery and Gallery Folders
  • Favourites and Collections
  • Other profile subpages: Activity, Badges, Daily Deviations, Critiques, Gallery Stats, Polls, Wishlist

We felt that it was important to fix this inconsistency to properly reflect traffic to all deviants’ Profiles. If an artist gets a lot of traffic to their Prints shop, this should be reflected in the same way it would if an art appreciator had high-traffic Collections.


We see the Profile Page in its entirety as a single entity and we want the pageview counter to properly reflect traffic to it regardless of the entry point.   


Note that this change only applies to Profile pageviews and not deviation views or any other statistics.
