    That AWESOME! It reminds me of a computer program I used in highschool, we even made animations. That would be a sweet way to make a mock-up, or proto-type of an instrument for a customer, work out the fine details on the computer...is that what you use it for?

    ...I prefer paper myself. ;)

    I prefer to just use AutoCAD, but 3D apps are cool too. What are you using to make that? I used to use Lightwave and Maya.

    2D apps can only go so far. beleieve me, i used to be an autocad professional.

    with 3D i can do mass-property analyses, interference checks, 3D to CNC.

    i use Pro/Engineer Wildfire 2.0 for all my modeling. i always use 3D CAD. Maya, MAX, etc...are limited for the type of modeling I'm doing.

    though, i render in MAX.

    William S. Burroughs looking at me suspiciously, slightly zonked, “Who are you an agent for?” He “traced back along word-lines,” cut-up technique of anti-brainwash prophylaxis, language analysis inquiring sources encoded thru my mental conditioning, perhaps liberal Professor Trilling, perhaps “a trust of giant insects from another Galaxy” conspiring to make Nova Conditions on our Planet, exterminate our Homo Sap inhabitants so another life-form move in on the home turf, virus invasion via abstract language stupefaction, such-like Poetries on his mind.
