One of the most important rules to folow when deciding between processors... Never, never, never buy a celeron.

Don't forget about Mac OS X and the G5 processor (IBM PowerPC 970). Although OS X is not a fully 64 bit OS yet (for compatability) it does support >4GB of RAM and 64-bit integers. There are advantages to having a 64 bit version of Blender available, most people will never notice the difference thoug...

Re: Blender Cad request

I would like to see is a 3D Array fuction, I know that ACad has this but for circular it can't do the same while also changing elevation, say like a spiral stair for example. I would also like to see an array combination scaling/offset feature as well. This would be cool. Not a feature that would b...

I would like snaps to work more automatically, like in AutoCAD. There would just be a single toggle for "object snap" on/off... then whenever you get close to an end point it highlights to show that it's recognizing the endpoint as a snap point, and if you click it's done. It works the same for cent...

That would rock. The best part about Xgrid is that it uses Rendezvous (zero conf) to automatically find and connect to any other computers running Xgrid. It even knows how much processing power is available on each computer and splits up the job accordingly. It collects and assembles the pieces for ...

Yeah, from what little I could understand through the babelfish translation (babelfish.altavista.com) it is not related to this Blender at all. BTW, this was my favorite part of the babelfish translation: "In order to hit, the software to sprinkle the screen in the monitor" Gotta love Babelfish... n...

Yeah, trim and extend would be a really nice addition to the 2D sketch creation. I just ask one thing, do it the AutoCAD way, I was just looking at the instructions on that Cadkey page, and it's the exact opposite of AutoCAD, I don't think my feeble little brain could handle that :P EDIT: Inventor d...

Awesome news. I'm glad to see some people are pursuing this idea! I can't wait to see where this goes.

Money_YaY, Sketch-up is good for quick modeling, but it's not really a CAD application. CAD is all about PRECISION!

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Please don't implement those stupid UCS/WCS concepts in "BlenderCAD tm" :shock: Has anyone else here used Autodesk Inventor? I hear it's a lot like SolidWorks, but I've barely used SW. I've used both AutoCAD and Inventor for thousands of hours each, and I really like how Inventor w...

I am also a CAD designer. I'm having a really hard time learning Blender, so I'm not sure what is is already in there, but I have a few CAD-like features to request also (perhaps this would be a completely separate program? BlenderCAD?): ------------------------------------------------------------ F...

What are you system specs? Has any past version of Blender worked for you? I have no idea what is causing your crash, since no version of Blender has crashed for me, I do have a couple suggestions for you to try. 1) Set your display to 'Thousands' of colors, not 'Millions' (in the Displays System Pr...

I agree with Money_YaY! I don't think it would be of much use, the Mac OS X version of Blender works great. Maybe if you were still using OS 9, and you wanted to use Blender you could run it in VPC, but it would be quite slow I imagine. Of course the new PowerBooks don't even allow you to boot into ...

I care!!!

I check in here every day hoping for a new build :)

I don't post bug reports very often because I barely know how to use Blender, but I'm getting there. I keep downloading new versions because I like seeing the progress being made.

DON'T EVER STOP MAKING OS X BUILDS!!! :D :D :D

PPC 970

Also there will (soon) be affordable 64 bit PPC 970 systems available from IBM running linux, and hopefully also from Apple running Mac OS X.

How hard would it be to move blender to 64 bit code? What are the benefits besides being able to use more memory? Increased precision??
