CURVED WALL SIGNAGE

More of an ACAD question...Have exploded, extruded and rotated my text to be used for signage...that occurs on a curved wall.All the letters are individual solids.Any quick-n-easy way to get the letters repositioned/rotated along the curve of the wall? I've tried using array (polar and path) and align....failed at each.Trying to avoid having to do each letter individually, as there will be other options on case and size that I have to do.Images attached....Thanks for any help,JohnSee More

Somewhere along the line when we set up our new computer (Win 10) we goofed on the file associations of the material and trees files.

"Glad to hear it-- the 6 million pixels or so which this gave you should work-- provided people aren't too close to the sign."

Render Window

Posted on October 8, 2010 at 9:43am 0 Comments

Odd question: I started a rendering then minimized ACAD. I can see that the rendering is processing by the tab at the bottom of the screen, but can only bring ACAD back up. The rendering window won't restore...maybe I'm not waiting long enough? I can highlight/depress the tab, but nothing happens. Any ideas? Thanks - John

"Putting Area lights behind external windows help the overhall ambiance. Also rendering with no furniture first makes rendering go faster so when ok with the lighting then you can added the furnitures for the final rendering"

"Doesn't that mean that turning your CPU 95% down it will run only at 5% of its full horsepower? Does it mean that the rendering will then run 20X longer than of full CPU throttle? Or did you mean to set the CPU usage to 95%? Are those 5% enough…"
