Plastica: Experimental 3D typeface issues

Forums: 

Hello guys,
I’m nearly finishing work on my new experimental 3D typeface called Plastica. I’m facing few problems I would like to discuss.

It is CFF OpenType made in FontLab on PC. Outlines are very precise and I used atypical custom UPM of 2300 units (23 modules at 100 units). But this should be fine regarding to older nodes on Typophile.
There are two versions: Plastica One (Striped) and Plastica Two (Outlined).
And here is what I struggle with:

1) On-screen rendering issues:

Screw this lettering

Forums: 

Had this silly pun in my mind when making this image:

Though the effect looks fancy, I would like some suggestions how to make the lettering part more "streamlined".

It was modelled with blender, with a simple screw command, which, can work with continuous lines.
How would you connect letters with horizontal segments?

I wouldn't prefer adding loops personally, so a regular script writing is a no-go.

Inspired by neutral slab serifs with an added twist, Slab Happy is a typographic system consisting of eight layerable fonts with infinite combinations. Slab Happy looks best when set in display sizes, but functions just as well at smaller point sizes.

The complete Slab Happy family consists of: Regular, Bold, Outline, 3D, Stitches, Fill, Shadow, and Crosshatch.

Creating 3D Type

Hello All!
This is my first post on Typophile, diggin' the site so far! I came to this
site in search of an answer. I have been using Illustrator and Photoshop
trying to create 3D typography and it seems to not be going in the right
direction. Can anyone tell me what programs were used to create text like
this:

New typeface released, it was inspired by movie tittles from old B&W Hollywood movies. The typeface was custom designed in vector format using a high number of colors to produce a realistic 3D effect.

It is perfect for display use, large format graphics, magazines, posters and 3D design.

It was showcased at Typography Served: http://www.typographyserved.com/gallery/Smoking-Club-Typeface/5410327

Exploration blog

Forums: 

I decided to throw together a tumblr blog of my 3d type explorations. I know I'm treading well-worn ground here, but I'm teaching myself the software and having fun with type while doing it. Although there's nothing particularly groundbreaking here, there may be something of interest to the people that frequent this board. Hope you like it.

and for those of you that don't like tumblr, I'm also replicating it all on my flickr site.

If you don't like flickr or tumblr, sorry, got nothing else for you.

Here's a teaser image [one of the better ones, ha].

Twitter Maze - Twitter trends visualization in 3D

Announcing Twitter Maze: a free Mac and PC application that generates a spiral-shaped maze based on Twitter trends from the last 24 hours.

It was originally produced for Written Images (a generative book initiative) before evolving into this simple desktop application (much more to be done...)

Feedback is welcome,
