So it's Newell's damn fault! I knew it!

smackdaddy I thought that it was something like it came from a geek contest where they were trying to conceive of the most complex parametric model back in the day - and they came up with the teapot.

It's funny that it's still used as an icon in Max.

PS - Tell John hi for me, Sona. He won't know who the hell I am, but what the heck.

Sonadora Good to be here womby. I think I had a sailnet account years ago.

just what I need. Another sailing forum.

I used to know the story behind the teapot. I'll have to give it some thought (and drop John Walker an e-mail ). I used to be a reseller of 3DS (back on v3 DOS).

That was a good one.

Here is the history of the teapot.

Heh-heh, do you still have the rendering of the torus, teapot and pyramid from the 3D Studio 1.0 tutorial? Now that's sexy.

BTW - what's with the whole teapot thing?

tdw Welcome to Sailnet Sons......good to see your name pop up. Must be the first time I've managed to drag one of the anarchists over here though some of us do forum hop.

Thanks for filling MP in on the software. Me I know nothing about it. All my design work was done on DrawingBoard 2.1

SW is all about accurate models. It puts AutoCAD in the weeds. AutoDesk's answer to SolidWorks is Inventor. That product is not bad, but it is typically 2 or 3 steps behind SolidWorks.

In SolidWorks, you work entirely in 3D. The 2-D orthographic views are simply by-products of the 3D model. Coming from 15 years of AutoCAD experience, I was skeptical that working in 3D could be as fast as 2D. Turns out I was right. 3D in SolidWorks isn't as fast as 2D. It's FASTER and more accurate.

I've been using SolidWorks now for 7 years and will never go back to drawing in 2D.

And for what it's worth, I always used 'monkey'.
