    New Curves Beta

    (Regarding loading curves in 4.8.31 Beta) Hi team. Can I ask, what version of Illustrator .EPS should I be saving as ? Nothing was showing up in 3DC after selecting the latest version Illustrator EPS CC, CS6, CS2 and Illustrator EPS 8 produces strange squiggly lines as curves in 3DCoat. This shape as an expanded vector in Illustrator CC 2018 (EPS) : Or worse, in some older versions of Illustrator EPS (for example Illustrator EPS v8). One imported curve from that looked like a bowl of noodles. BTW, the spline is differently joined at all points. Would LOVE to get this working as I think it would really help clean up my hard surface modelling outcomes. Many thanks guys. Jamie

    Load Shape in 'E' Panel - can't find it in 4.8.31

    Thanks Andrew, sorry if this is obvious, but how does that work now? All I can see is 3d models in the curves palette, after using the curves menu, and I want to use an .EPS to create a shape? Happy New by the way! Thank you for your quick response
  4. Hey Champions, I am trying in vain to find 'Load Shape' in the E panel so I can use an .eps (specifically the sphere tool, but I think it used to work with many tools in older versions) and just can't find it. Can anyone help me please? Thanks all

    Accurate Array?

    Thanks very much @ABNRanger, really appreciate your help Hadn't thought of the measuring tool... <edit> You even timestamped it to bit that I needed. Super thoughtful, thanks mate!

    Just fantastic work, Mack, from a fellow concept designer Seriously beautiful forms and renders / comps. Inspired.

    Accurate Array?

    actually, just worked it out warp tool with scale set to 1, and overlap set to a negative value ! Unless anyone else knows a better way ?

    Accurate Array?

    Hey guys, what tool do you guys use to make a patterns of voxel shapes, with orthogonal accuracy? I can't get warp to do it with any accuracy, and instancer means I have to manually move each instance, which is not efficient, nor does it work well. Think of sleepers of a railway track, equally spaced. That is what I want to create essentially. (but not curved) This is dead easy to create in sketchup or anything else, but can't seem to do it in my beloved 3d Coat. Thanks in advance

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    Hi guys, running 4.8.06, win 10. cannot exporting any kind of model layer to meshes panel, doesn't work with voxels (even low res) or in surface mode either. No cue is given when you try to activate the command from File > Export > Save to Mesh Panel - it just does nothing at all. Anyone else finding this?

    RenderMan render

    Thanks mate, I do actually have RM Proserver-21.5 AND RM for Maya 21.5 (i must have wanted to have all bases covered. ) Was using render preview, too. I have a theory that putting a physical (voxel based) lit object in the scene, made it work? I am not sure. Haven't had heaps of time to play with it further yet, life got hectic.
