Re: pattern generator

Looks great! Can this also be used to fill a 3D surface? For example to clad organic shaped buildings?

Re: E-drawings & Solidworks Seminar.

Bear in mind that e-drawings is now a commercial application. I believe its only free to use for 1 year. To create an e-drawing you need an 3d application who supports the format. Its actually a 3D viewer, with nice features to make cross-sections and switch parts on and off for people who do not ha...
