So I went through all the lightwave cad 5 videos a few times and I still can't figure out how to make a simple patch. Lofting was easy enough but I feel it doesn't give quite the amount of control I need. In one video I see a grid of splines already made ( I guess with the line tool?) and then I see patches begin drawn easily. . . I don't understand how the splines were connected in order to make
I draw out points as I used to do but all I get is a box or polygonal shape, no arc. If I add an object and then use Arc but turn on slice or add or intersect, it then becomes an Arc. What am I doing wrong?
I've been working on my first animated sequence that involves an interior lit by luminous polygons and no lights and have discovered the horror that is animated GI.Been through a lot of threads, read Except's radiosity tutorial... to get anything even close to a clean render for an 8 second shot at 1920x1080 requires just a silly amount of time per frame -- either interpolated MC with tin
I would like to know how to round corners on a 2D box for example? Rounder works great on 3D. But if you draw a 2D box, plane, anything with sharp angle corners. Is there a way to pick that corner and round it , individually or globally.
When using clone to line on a line that is in the background layer LWCAD lays out clones only on the first segment of that line. If the line is in multiple segments ( Joined ) LWCAD does not use the whole line.
I really like the shingles tool. I often use it in combination with the MultiTexture plugin to give each shingle a slightly different color. Therefore each shingle needs a different matID. So to make this tool faster to work with, please implement an option to give each shingle a different matID.
LWCAD 5.5 ROAD LINE crashes on 2015.3 and 2018 not when using straight line tool, but when set to spline or curve mode. Works with a straight line option. Just started playing with cross walk and it crashed also when playing with sizing parameters. Tried unistalling from 2015 and 2018. Reboot, then installed 2018 only..still crashed. Tried installing 2015..same still crashes.
so i'm still currently on the 3.x version and i'm looking to upgrade soon but was wondering if in the later versions, there's a way of changing the scale of library objects when the library objects are invoked during tools like cloning a library object on a polygon.
i forgot the exact name of tool but there is one tool that allows you to "spray" a library object on an existing poly an
Hello Will be possible to create Smart Element? Smart Element - for example, it's lwcad object(file) which contains complete facade of building's side. We can place it at one of building's side. Or it will contain room(if will be possible osl room - http://julius-ihle.de/?p=2451) Also it has any proxy features: level of detail, load at rendering and etc.
Viktor, I wanted to comment on something as a suggestion, I do not know if it's very far-fetched but I feel that this level of control is missing from the program to work much better. I do not know if you know the DesignToolBox plugin from Atelier Bump. There you can be strict with angles, reference guides etc ... all this very very useful and necessary within the architecture tools.
Is there some compatibility issues between presets of LWCAD 3.x, 4.x and 5.x ?
I have some older files/presets for Shingles and Fences from LWCAD 4.x (or it's 3.x can't say for sure) and i copied all the *.s3d files inside LWCAD presets folders with their corresponding folder with rest of presets but LWCAD don't see any of them, it lists just default presets and nothing else.
Hi I would like to know how the curved roofs where done on the bulding at the start of the lwcad.com website cant find it on my laptop but it shows on my kindle it is on a page advertising the lwacd bundle I am curious if this was done in lightwave
Hello Viktor, first of all congratulations for the creation of the plugin for Max, if it works correctly this plugin for me will be an incredible tool, but (there is always a but) I am testing it on 3ds Max 2018 and it is extremely slow, I'll give you an example when I create rails, simple the viewport becomes almost impossible to move and is not precise, you have to convert them to editable mesh
FYI - I have one authorized paid license of the latest version of LWCAD which allows me to also take part in the LWCAD beta trials as further developments continue.
I currently have LWCAD (the latest beta version) installed in more than 1 version of one application (Cinema 4D - Versions 18 & 19) on one system (Mac OS X - 10.13). Is it possible to use LWCAD in each Cinema 4D application w
When you have Center snap set in the snapping panel and you draw a line to a rectangle object it won't snap to the center of the object. It works for curves, Circles and Polygons but not for the rectangle tool.
Draw a rectangle
Make sure center snap is activated in the snap panel
Draw a line to the center of the rectangle it won't snap to the center.
Just tested it in V4.51
