Hello, it sounds good. I sent you a message.

I have several small projects going and I could discuss those in messages (not trying to kidnap this thread).

If it is okay to put a link to website, it would be rokkorlab dot net.

Another question, might anybody here be available for smallish 3D design jobs?

I make small parts mainly for photography gear, but don't have the time to focus on 3D design really well currently.

Resurrecting this conversation after a summer break - small objects that consist of one shell only 3D print without trouble.

But the problem is that to create object with just one shell means creating the whole object from one shape or primitive by manipulating points only.

If the object was made by grouping together "sub-objects", which is the normal way of creating complex objects, it would show more than one shell and not 3D printable as such.

So it works for rather simple objects currently.

I doubt that 6 ever existed. I was active with Imagine3D in 1996 and 1997. Possibly even 1998 until other activities took over - and 5 was the newest version during that period.

Halvorson was interested in Lightwave and Organica at that time. He wrote a paper comparing Lightwave and Imagine3D metrics and how to convert Imagine units to real world metrics just like in Lightwave. I received the paper together with Imagine installation disks.

Unfortunately I have lost that paper.

3D scanner for Imagine3D?

Inspired by the many possibilities enabled by 3D printing brings forward a new question for a suitable 3D scanner to scan in more complex object shapes.

Is there a recommended 3D scanner or any other first hand info that could be used for starters?

Result is more than satisfactory.

One funny or curious thing, though - the cloud that spreads in the sky background looks eerily similar to the puffs of material that I can observe aircraft dumping in the sky almost on daily basis - the substance begins to spread and covers sky area in quite similar manner.

Thanks, these functions indeed help. Pick and Hide Subgroup remain gray and do not light up. Are they intended for a grouped object only?

Also Edge Filter and Pick Sharp Edges stay unlit and have not been active to select.

I just wish there was a simple key modifier to un-select specific points just like adding to selection with Shift pressed.

One question though, is there a way to unpick selected points other than Hide Unpicked and then using Reverse Pick?

I can add to the selection by keeping down Shift, but it would be nice to be able to just as easily remove picked points from selection.

I just tested the grid and it indeed works as precise dimensional aid.

The key combination on Windows is Alt + - (minus). If one sets value 0.1, the grid is one tenth of a millimeter for an item to be 3D printed.

The grid is also well covered in the book 3D modeling lab that is a thick handbook for Imagine3D DOS version and still easily available.

That's very interesting. I had not thought about the grid being the Imagine dimension unit but now it seems obvious.

I will try it for the next item.
