    tufnuts: that's pro/engineer wildfire 2.0

    the reason i'm kind of excited about the head, is that using a CAD program isn't that user friendly for organic surfacing.

    i have to specify all curve and surface tangencies.

    in fact, this model has all G2 level curvature connections.

    a labor of love.

  6. Oohhh. Tangency and curvature :) It's way neat. Getting a decent surface, and not rippled or completely f'ed up...takes lots of time.

    I need to do a CAD comparison at work, and may use you to bounce some questions off of. Nothing to hard...I promise ;)

    (waiting for someone to top that with the latest 3Dsmax 7... :))

    Pretty sweet job, fhodshon! Keep up the good work!
     
  10. How'd ya get the 3D data? Saw the import portion on the feature manager.
