I'm not quite sure I follow what your asking. I've found most cad export have multiple duplicate verts, so editing it, selecting all the verts, hitting 'w' and clicking remove doubles. From there, depending on the structure of your model, you could de-select all the verts, and (hopefully) hover over...

Re: Posted in Interface section, but maybe can get answer he

Trying to set up a motion somewhat like a reel on a slot machine. Using the spacebar to initiate a spin is OK, as long as I hold the spacebar down it spins. But I want to hit the spacebar once and then have the wheel spin a random number of times and stop on a face of the cylinder. I don't see how ...

I've done something like this. (If its what I'm thinking you mean)

Make your mesh, then your path.

select your mesh, add a generate array modifier, and tell it to fit your path.

Then add a curve deform modifier with your path again, and viola!

Re: Cycles Rendering - "Device" option is not the

When I select "Cycles Render" the render panel does change, and also the materials panel etc. But when I click the render (camera icon) I don't have an option to select the render device (CPU or GPU). There are two options, "Display" 'and "Feature Set". The "Feature Set" has two options - "Supporte...

Watch out for your light sizes. If your point light is at 10 and only 5 or so units away, your shadows will always be real soft. Try changing your light size to .1 or .05 and play around so you can get used to it. Also, I find myself using less and less lights in scenes at all. As an emitting object...

Does it crash when you dont have experimental selected? I know even my nvidia card with cuda will crash occasionally when I have experimental selected.

Re: opengl mvp matrix in Blender

Hi all, I have a problem with openGL (not Blender :P ). I have in openGL a modelViewProjection matrix and I want to apply it to my model loaded in Blender. Is there a method to do this?

Under render settings, you only have layer 2 selected, tho your entire scene is on layer one.

Simply rendering all layers, or more specifically layer 1 fixes the issue.

As far as the zoom issue, I noticed after reading this thread again, that you can reverse the zoom for the ndof items. I didmt play with it, but it seems to be what you are looking for. Now on to reversing all of the axes. Since (in linux) you no longer need the 3dconnexion software. You could (if m...

At this point I've just assumed the reason it doesnt work with 2.50 is the fact that its still alpha software. I hope I'm right because I've not found anything about ndof working (or not working) in 2.50. Question ...But it works near flawlessly in 2.59. Been gleefully using it for a bit now. Reall...

Long shot, but where did you install blender to?

Windows has that user control stuff. Try installing it to a world readable directory. See if it starts then.
