Two tutorials in one day? Amazing how that worked out.
Short video tutorial explaining how to make the shape in 3D. Actually really easy.
I'm more amazed at the video quality. Well, now I actually have the hardware to watch and record 1920x1080 video. I gave CamStudio another shot and tried a custom-made Xvid codec. Amazing results! The video I uploaded was only 41MB. Videos I had uploaded before were ALWAYS 100MB and up for decent quality. I think this will suffice for the time being.
