Hello fellow modelers

I tryed to acess today subdivisionmodeling.com and it's down. It was beaten to spam for a while ago, but know it's really dead.

It's really a shame since it had great subD resources and discussions, such as Subdivision Primer The Pole, The Pole revised, The Form, Head Topology, etc, etc...

Here are some of them in google cache:
The Pole (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:ULRpRdmPKy4J:www.subdivisionmodeling.com/forums/showthread.php%3Ft%3D907+subdivisionmodeling&cd=2&hl=pt-PT&ct=clnk&gl=pt&source=www.google.pt)
The Form (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:n_pWWJmQSvIJ:www.subdivisionmodeling.com/forums/showthread.php%3Ft%3D482+subdivisionmodeling+the+form&cd=1&hl=pt-PT&ct=clnk&gl=pt&source=www.google.pt)
The Pole - revised (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:1xVzHsT4c8wJ:www.subdivisionmodeling.com/forums/showthread.php%3Ft%3D8000+subdivisionmodeling+Pole+Revised&cd=1&hl=pt-PT&ct=clnk&gl=pt&source=www.google.pt)
Topology - head (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:TQaJL4aHHosJ:www.subdivisionmodeling.com/forums/showthread.php%3Ft%3D8911+subdivisionmodeling+topology+-+head&cd=1&hl=pt-PT&ct=clnk&gl=pt&source=www.google.pt)
8 Pole Head Technique (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:kPwnzpFaVG0J:www.subdivisionmodeling.com/forums/showthread.php%3Fp%3D84447+8+pole+head+technique+subdivision+modeling&cd=1&hl=pt-PT&ct=clnk&gl=pt&source=www.google.pt)
Unfortunetly the Subdivision Primer cache is messed up =/

Last time i checked the domain hosted on a server owned by Mr.Wes Beckwith, an active leader at SpinQuad and Kurvtudios communities. So i made a thread appealing for those resources to be hosted, incorporated somewhere else, maybe one of those forums, since it's a dang shame to lose all that unique info and approach to subdivision.

Make some polite noise if you can at those threads, to make them aware of the value and effort put on those threads.

Spinquad thread (http://www.spinquad.com/forums/showthread.php?31428-subdivisionmodeling.com-a-corner-with-great-resources-is-down!)

Kurvstudios thread (http://www.kurvstudios.com/forum/showthread.php?p=15813)

Vbob from CG forum http://madseeds.com (http://madseeds.com/) had already made backups of some threads.
You can find them at http://madseeds.com/the_pole/

I also put all those .zip files in a file sharing website so that madseeds.com bandwidth can be spared.

Kudos to Vbob!

Kudos to Blendernewbies.com

By the way, does anyone know who is the author of this Primer?

Is this a preview of the larger future of subdivision modeling in general?

In some ways SubD could reach further, but what particular thing makes you think that?

Some nice people on CGItrainer.com rescued the original file of
"Reference Sheets/Tables for 3D Modeling (http://www.subdivisionmodeling.com/forums/showthread.php?p=48975)" wich I found very useful for training also.
http://www.cgitrainer.com/forum/46-modeling/17975-tableau-de-ref-pour-la-modelisation-polygonale.html

Thanks to cgitrainer.com for that!

I just finished replicating some of the posts from THE POLE thread.

http://www.lightwiki.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22

Feel free to comment.
There is also a zip file attached with a txt containing the posts entries with a forum format, so if you want to replicate the thread somewhere else, feel free to do it.

Will probably give a shot at some other threads, but for now I'm sick of transcripting and all the fuss.

Cheers
