  1. I will take a look at Imagaro Z. Thanks Pat
  2. Thanks guys This is on my wish list.
  3. Does anyone have a suggestion for converting a jpg image to a line drawing usable in VW? Is there software that will do this?
  4. BCD I did rotate as you suggested - Makes sense but I am still having issues with the EAP. As Michaelk has said you get strange results. I get 1 large loop, 1 small, 1 large, 2 small then 3 large. The EAP command is possessed.
  5. mikaelk When I tried to used the helix spiral I used a vertical line. When I tried to replicate what you did I did not use the helix spiral but the sweep.
  6. I don't know if it makes sense or not. I'm a little in no man's land. I'm so accustomed to sweeps to get what I want because they are never tapered like this one. I've never used the 3D toolset like this so I'm not sure what I am doing. I guess it is like an intersect command? I get an error message: "surfaces could not be trimmed as they do not intersect to create a closed volume"
  7. Thanks for your help. I'm with you until step 6 - extract all surfaces stitch and trim. Not sure what you did there
  8. That is precisely what I am trying to do. How did you do it please?
  9. probably should have put this is solids modeling
  10. I'm having trouble creating the helix need to use as a subtract from my stair baluster. The profile I am trying to "spin" always has the wrong orientation to the helix. Any help would be appreciated. drawing is attached.
  11. My apologies. I indeed left a square in the model. Thanks for your interest.
  12. As you can see from my attachment, squares appear in my rendering through my table legs. Anyone have an idea why this would be?
  13. My cursor blinks when ever I move it from place to place. I'm using VW11 fundamentals. This did not happen with VW09. Can anyone help?
  14. Thanks Mike I knew the camera was useful for something
  15. I'm making 3d solids and rendering for my web site and noticed that when adding perspective that it displays in an exaggerated way, sort of like when photographing with a wide angle lens. See image Architectural Wood Turnings Is this right? The top looks wacky to me.

  17. My mahogany iteration using the Photoshop stamp tool. Looks like I have some unsightly defects in my mahogany and maybe scaled too large. http://architectural-wood-turnings.com/2009/04/08/another-rendering-attempt/
  18. Ray Can you tell me what you are doing in photoshop to make the image seemless?
  19. Thanks for your helpful posts. I am getting the hang of it. I'm most curious about importing web images into photoshop to make them seamless how is this done? And secondly could someone recommend a good source for wood textures? http://architectural-wood-turnings.com/2009/04/04/rendered-greek-column-newels/
  20. Oh I misunderstood - got it. I'll give it a try.
  21. Doesn't this create a tiled look though?
  22. Thank you I was able to rotate but indeed some VW textures attributes are greyed out. Thanks again.
