  1. Polyxo, Przemas thanks so much!!! As I am still researching, all of this information is EXTREMELY helpful. Your expertise is immensely appreciated!!!
  2. Hey fellow 3DCoaters! Does anyone know if it's possible to use a 3D Print as a prototype for manufacturing purposes. Let's say I developed some toys in 3DC, can I simply take 3D Prints of my models and use them to cast the molds needed for mass production? Anyone familiar with this process? Is this even possible? Many thanks in advance! Sam
  3. Hey Johnnycore! Yes, I reinstalled everything before I read your post. I even trashed any .plist files pertaining to 3DC. I had to do a clean install of my original v3.0 and then a clean install of build 3.7.00. Now it looks like I'll stay away from build 3.7.16A because every time I launch 3.7.16A, my computer freezes and monitors flicker. But I am very happy now and it appears that everything is stable once again after I did my clean installs. Thanks everyone! Sam
  4. Thanks Tony. Didn't work. And my apologies to the forum moderators... it appears I have posted in the wrong the forum. I was stricken with panic when I couldn't use my 3d-Coat anymore and I'm under deadline. Anyway, I reinstalled my original purchase of v3.0 and it seems to remedy the situation except for one thing. Now, I gotta find that damned serial number LOL. :( Sam
  5. Hey 3DCoaters! HELP! PLEASE! Sparked up 3D Coat v.3.7.04 today to work on a new project. I went to choose a photo as a background reference while I in "front' camera position. Instead of being able to choose the image I wanted, 3D Coat decided to throw in the default blue fractal background image. Then... BLAMMO!!!!!! KAPLOOEY!!!!!! My entire system flew south for the winter after that. System wide crashing with my dual monitor set up flickering constantly. After de-installing and trashing every preference I could find. I was left with this image after reinstalling v3.5. 3D Coat and my system were running BEAUTIFULLY for the past year. No hiccups whatsoever; worked like a dream. So it's safe to say that choosing a background image probably caused all of this. Here are my specs: MacBook Pro Intel Core 2 Duo-2.66 GHz 8GB of DDR3 RAM OSX 10.5.8 NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 512MB Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,2 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 6 MB Memory: 8 GB Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz Boot ROM Version: MBP52.008E.B05 Please let me know if you need any more info and many, many thanks in advance. Any help is greatly appreciated. Sam
  6. Hey Methelina! I like your work! The bottom 360 from your unannounced project is pretty cool (posted on 12.6.11). Keep 'em coming
  7. Great job guys! I've been test driving 3.7 and the work Andrew has done is impressive. Hats off to the entire Pilgway team as I am enjoying the speed and stability enhancements of the latest 3DC
  8. Awesome advice gentlemen! HUGE thanks again and I'll post the piece as soon as I'm done
  9. Hey fellow 3d Coaters. I'm working on a piece now and love how 3d Coat can EASILY make chains using the Curves tool with "chain" profile. I will actually have a lot of them (chains) in this sculpt. Question now is... how would I retopo the chains? Autopo? Should I even bother in 3DC or should I just build the chains in my other app (LW Modeler)? Many thanks in advance.
  10. Tremendous! Awesome advice guys! Thanks so much!!! I'll give it a shot and I will definitely let you know how I make out.
  11. I had a feeling that was going to be the case. Thanks Psmith! You're a scholar and a gentleman!!!
  12. Lets say you have completed a sculpt with a complete set of textures, retopo and uvs. Is it possible to go back and create a new topology and assign it to your sculpt without having to rebake, remerge and repaint your textures? Many thanks in advance!
