    converting jpg to dwg

    Does anyone have a suggestion for converting a jpg image to a line drawing usable in VW? Is there software that will do this?

    Trouble with helix spiral command

    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.

    Trouble with helix spiral command

    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.

    Trouble with helix spiral command

    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"

    Trouble with helix spiral command

    Thanks for your help. I'm with you until step 6 - extract all surfaces stitch and trim. Not sure what you did there

    strange cross section added when rendering

    My apologies. I indeed left a square in the model. Thanks for your interest.
  13. As you can see from my attachment, squares appear in my rendering through my table legs. Anyone have an idea why this would be?

    exagerated perspective

    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.

    properly orienting wood textures

    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/

    properly orienting wood textures

    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/
