@atmmatt, what about the import export possibility, step import? obj export? Thanks in advance, Phil It imports with step and iges. The only compatible one that goes from Alibre to Blender is stl. I'm not sure about other 3d packages but it seems stl is the only major one (lots of dxf and step form...

Alibre Express - 2D/3D solid modeler. I own the full version but express is very capable.

If people don't like it then I'm sorry the hard work of others fails to catch your eye... Some constructive critisism was offered, and people flew of the handle and shot us down in flames like the hindeberg. Mmmm, comunities sometimes give me such warm and fuzy feelings inside. dogfin - Hi, I don't...

Have you tried rendering it in blender and seeing if the same problem is there?

Also which two nk files did you use?

Not sure. Did you register on the old site? I used to be atm-matt but it changed to atmmatt.

hahaha great stuff.

Can you do it like calvin and hobbes? Have plasticine suicides, maybe have him jump into the blue recycle bin for plastic bottles :D Have one of the other characters tell another character "he just couldn't take the squeaking when he walked any longer..."

While laying out a newtonian I got a weird optical illusion.

In english we usually call them eyepieces. The trick with the refractor is it's usually an doublet, two lens stuck together like a camera lens. The eyepiece however can be a simple 4 surfaced one or up to 15 surfaces just for that. I'll try and gather some schematics of the lenses and telescope specs.

subsurface scattering http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subsurface_scattering Thanks! I'm still a touch unclear about it. Is SSS meant to sort of replicate something like a ceramic glaze? Where you have your ceramic underneath but a very thin layer of glass covering the surface from the firing process? ...

I'm pretty sure you can use a plano-convex lens for camera obscura (in reality of course). One side is flat and the other side is convex (still spherical). Still very neat with the pinhole effect, I'm very surprised it worked!

Tomorrow I will try and model a telescope, newtonian and then a simple refractor. I can also try some cat systems to see if it gives any nice effect. The trick will be putting that parabolic surface onto the mirror surface and then spinning it smooth. I have all the numbers, I'll just model it after...

Heh if you wanted to get real fancy you would replicate the lens of a nikon or canon with + 10 elements :) Also you would match the index of refraction to each species of glass used in the lens.

Anyone know if it's possible to replicate a multicoating on the psuedo lens?
