    Silo app link

    Hey Kenmo Old School Wings 3D i remember it . I had (Fractal Designer ) Ray Dream Designer 4 and Studio i remember the Lath tool was so cool. Painter for texturing . Back when i use to go to Computer Shows in NJ. buy all your gear and go home and build your cutting edge 486 DX 4meg of ram with DOS and a Sound Blaster board with a external Modem i miss the sounds of it when trying to connect. I too use Blender i hate the new layout but Relearning it with all the down time now and watching /learning on Udemy on Houdini . i have not looked at Silo 3d yet.
  2. The new 2.8 U I is a step in the wrong direction for me . So many things to be improved upon and they waste time on those changes . Seam to me that they needed to keep people busy doing something in there area so you get a generic 1980s looking layout . I will be staying at the 2.79 for a long while. The new features are great though .

    3D Coat Trial Version 4.8.32 - Many Bugs?

    your object is probably there just small try using transform tool to see its position the 3 boxes then the X BUTTON will (hit it) move it too the center. also try Shift-A TO GO to it.

    Blender Applink

    I have not moved to 2.8 as of yet (not looking forward to the new UI changes ) but when I do I will most definitely be using this app link. Thank you for your time on doing it.

    3D Coat Trial Version 4.8.32 - Many Bugs?

    Hopefully a change in the order and color code them tabs would help with common workflows. Sculpt Retopo (blue) Paint (1/2 blue to orange) Tweak UV (orange) Render (white) Workflow #1 bring in/start in sculpt room then on to retopo room (use the UV tools in retopo) then to paint room. Workflow #2 Bring in to Paint room use Tweak room and UV room . The Paint room is both the end of one workflow and the Start of another . any visual identity would help new users . I had the same problems with it 3 years ago .

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    4.8.33 I loaded up same lattice as above and had the same Greyed out y handles but like The_Mikeman says if you keep trying other lattice points you will find one with it normal . then On mine all then began to work as normal / expected . Also none of them would scale at all (xyz) but after finding the ONE that worked only then all began to work.

    Designing Massive Mech in 3DCoat - Tutorial

    For me the Gumroad page to get/buy the tutorial just put up the same page when I hit ( I Want This) button. No info/chance to pay. also is it a paypal to buy it ? This is from your YouTube channel to gumroad link. Looks like another inspiring model in 3dc as your works have shown what can be done.

    For being only one inch and a half big they look great. It looks as if other game pieces/characters do not go on top of them. Just wondering if you had these 3d printed or is it a render?

    Where is the Serial number

    Trying to load up a new version 4.8.25a-sl (dx64) windows. Ask to copy my Serial Number to Clipboard . which I will do as soon as I can find where it is? I looked in my (Documents) last/current build 4.7.07 but do not see it.is it a xml,text,or a DAT file?
  15. Reminds me of going to Computer shows in NJ. Then putting it all together at home. Yeah you can buy it all online now but walking around the shows was great. LOL spending $2000 on a DX480 with a Sound Blaster Board probably 4mb memory I would load up Ray Dream Designer 4 from Fractal Design which came with a real BOOK/User Guide.

    Add a VR and fix UV selections

    Please stop developing 3D-Coat (for a while...)

    I have been saying this from day 1 of using 3dcoat. thus is why I have moved on to learn other software . This type of business model is not good and when I see it I know to not waste my time on it. This Boat has so many leaks below deck but just keeps adding new cannons and eye candy up top which in turn adds more holes. I can easily see why people move on then come back years later and think surely it must be fixed by now Nope ... you get New Cannons .That is fine it is his software I only pay to use it.
  18. It is all the work around and small things not there that slowly snowball up to just getting aggravated . Just want a version that everything works . All these not important enough things to fix or should say adjust to better suit . I see it all the time this does not work so go to this new version which fixes that but has a new different problem else where. Where is the go to version where everything works. (not just stable ).I do not get why one does not fix ,what is there now to its best . Keep getting the mini movie of the next great thing added in I shake my head and see all the things that need to be fixed 1st before that next great thing is added in which in turn breaks a whole list of things to not be working then they get fixed back to where they where . progress yes but that list of things is still there. Just Branch 1 version of a working version with fine tuning things and have a 2nd version of the next big thing and all of its good enough it is in there here is the work around for it . It does not matter as like others I will just move on to invest my time in other software .

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    When it happens(the head bust) what is the position reading when you actived the transform tool . Iam using a older build 4.7.07 it is at 0.00 73.84 -10.62 in front view 2 . just me wondering where its at the origin /pivot point is set at.

    A question from a very new user.

    Hold Down CTRL (blue line) to go in. Any thing White is in. if you use the OT_random6 Stencil and hold CTRL (see a Blue line across brush) the white of the stencil goes in as to have no bulge. You have to look at which Stencil too use as far as what is all white in it and all black. Hope it helps.

    Saving Image in smart mat

    When adding a Image/Photo .jpg in smart material (Color) is there a way too save/copy (Pack) the image into 3dc (that smart mat your making) . As my Ext. HD is on/off and some are there. Kinda like in Blender you can Save image packed in the .blend file as to not lose it or go searching for it. I have know idea how 3dc connects/reference the photo/image. thanks for your time.

    Seperating paint objects question

    In Maya just give the model different Material to the parts you want isolated (name them as to help you in 3dc Mat_wing) . they should come up in the Paint Room with Surface Material > then just turn them on /off. Or use paint bucket tool that will also have surface mat. Hope it is what your asking about.
