Because some people are getting a wrong idea that we are drifting from LightWave, I have decided that it is right time to inform you about our current status and our long term plans with LWCAD specially LigthWave version.
LWCAD LITE(Max,C4d) versus LWCAD (LightWave). As you have noticed we are heavily updating LWCAD Lite version while LW version seems to be dormant. This
Often I get DWG plans from architects which have a lot of overlapping lines, meaning lines that sit on top of each other but don't share the end points, one is longer than the other. Curvs to surf command gets confused by this and it doesn't produce a good polygonal model. How to deal with this issue prior to curvs to surf command. I can fix this individualy with trim or sometimes the bool comman
I spent a good deal of time recently thinking about the modeling tools I have at my disposal: Maya, LightWave Modeler, ZBrush, 3D-Coat. All in the context of development of models for a real-time rendering usage. The current strategies for producing high quality models in that context mostly revolve around producing a really high fidelity high resolution shape, then in one way or another deriving
Viktor, was just curious as to whether you are thinking about the possibility of the Library supporting UVs for its stored shapes.
I guess I'm trying to get my head around how the Library can be leveraged e.g. in a game asset production workflow, where the alternative might be creating an ordinary on-disk library of pre-built meshes that are already UV unwrapped and then with the possibility
Perhaps someone can help me with the pipe tool. I am not new to LWCAD, but never really used the pipe tool before. I cannot get the pipe tool to draw around corners? Example, take a cube, start drawing on one plane or face then click on the next plane or face, in this case 90 degrees to the original. I will not turn. Always stays on the original plane. Tried resetting the tool, reinstalling
I used to use this tool up to I believe version 5.1, but it has disappeared in the 5.2 update. I had assumed it had been incorporated into another tool as others have been, but I can't find out where or how it works now.
The on-line help menu makes no mention of it and the 5.2 new features video on YouTube stops short of addressing it. I did discover that the Line Clone Tool has options for a
I've created a fairly simple building from a floor plan and added some windows to it. But, the windows I created last week only show up as holes in the walls in LW. The ones I created yesterday show up in Modeler and LW though. I don't think I created them as instances last week, but maybe did? Is there anyway to tell? A simple way to convert them to polys if I did
How can I round all corners of a polygon? It is not shown in the video. In my case it seems only possible by using the Numeric field window? It seems I am not able to use the mouse for more tools, like extrude length etc?
It would be nice to be able to create wall styles. Revit and Architectural Desktop have had these for years. Currently the wall command simply draws 2 lines in top view. An example of a wall style would be a brick cavity wall complete with brick hatching. Another would be a timber framed wall with studs and separate linings for interior and exterior. It would take the form of selecting t
