    3DCoat 4.7 (BETA testing thread)

    Did I miss an announcement -- been away for a while. 4.7.33 build doesn't have cuda support?

    UV Mapping Question(s)

    UV maps. UV Map Mesh is on the opening splash screen, but as I just checked, not on the file menu.

    UV Mapping Question(s)

    Hi. Had 3DC for a long time (back when it was called 3D Brush (I think that was the original name.) I finally have the time away from work to get into it. I've been making a lot of hard surface models lately in Lightwave (9.6) and hoped to use 3D-Coat (4.5) to do the UV mapping along with Photoshop CC. I wanted to use multiple UV sets to cut down the "clutter" and make it easier to paint. Many of the models are structures -- cabins, barns, etc, so there's lots of boards. Using pattern fill (Photoshop) works great for this purpose. However, I can't seem to find the method to work with the individual maps in 3DC. I create the maps in Lightwave and import using "UV Map Mesh" into 3DC. In 3DC, I see the "choose uv map set" and the preview of the chosen one. So I'd like to Edit|Edit all layers in external editor. So I select that and then answer the question of which set I want to edit. I do the edit, and here's where my confusion starts. Back in 3DC, I want to edit another set but retain the first one. I'm sure there's some procedure, but haven't figured it out yet of found a tutorial that shows how to prepare all the sets and finally apply and export.

    3D-Coat 4.5 released!

    Maybe this has been answered in the past, but is there ever hope of tear-off windows to use dual monitors?

    V4.1 BETA (experimental 4.1.17D)

    Not sure why.... I still see 4.1.07A on the 3DC window and "About" after I install 3d-Coat-V4_1-07B-64.exe (I did uninstall 07A first.)

    4.1 Released! (Current stable version)

    Wow! I can't imagine how so much can be done in such a relatively short time ( 4 -> 4.1). Congrats to Andrew and the crew (and all the beta testers.)

    V4.1 BETA (experimental 4.1.17D)

    Works okay now that I'm on win7.

    V4.1 BETA (experimental 4.1.17D)

    I'm getting crashes now with the x64 versions (DX or GL Cuda). I found if I backed out of the latest Nvidia driver 331.65 to 327.23 it would fix the crashing problem. Seems to be Cuda related with the latest driver. It is easy to repeat: start 3DC, select Voxels, and then the medium ball (though any selection would cause a crash --- not just the ball.) I'm using 4.0.09, but trying the previous beta version or the non-beta also crashed. I sent in the crash report but hesitate to report a bug on Mantis until I am clear if my computer meets the minimum system requirements (I haven't been able this information yet -- at least up-to-date.) As you can see from my signature I'm using winXP x64. I know... please lets not get into the whole updating your OS. I'm on a fixed income and need some software that won't run on my copy of win8. I'm contemplating getting win7, but MS makes it hard because if I upgrade from XP to 7, I have to go through a lot of hoops to go back to XP, which has programs necessary for my job.

    3D-Coat 3.7 updates thread

    Same with the Windows 64-bit CUDA. File name is 3d-Coat-V37-18H-CUDA64.exe but the title bar and "About" say 18F.

    Turning Symmetry Off

    No, I'm not sure, but I'm surprised the customization goes to the level of enabling/disabling partial menu items. Why one would want to only disable the "No Symmetry" is a bit puzzling. As you can tell, I haven't done much customizing in 3D Coat.

    Turning Symmetry Off

    Ah, thanks, that fixed it! Kind of strange though. Is this a bug? Sure don't see it as a feature.

    Turning Symmetry Off

    I don't see a "No symmetry" in the menu. Just the three symmetry axis selections and below are the show and lock symmetry selections.

    Turning Symmetry Off

    I'll probably feel a bit foolish after this post is answered, but.... How do I turn symmetry off? I can turn it on, move the plane, but can't remember the key sequence to turn it off. In searching the forums, I find plenty of "turn symmetry off" and "toggle symmetry". Toggle, to me means if I go to the symmetry menu and click "Symmetry across X - axis", it will turn on, which it does. If I repeat this, it should toggle off. It doesn't.

    Opening Wizard

    Thanks, I wouldn't have guessed that meant the Startup Wizard.
