We use Blender to animate our house designs and animate our 3D models developed in Technical Drawing. Our Comm Tech guy is also doing some animatin work with Blender. Here's o...

aoe2bug, I was just mentioning that after you hit the "B" key, you have exactly the right-to-left window option like in AutoCAD, it just doesn't do it automatically. I think Lukep took an opportunity to bash AutoCAD (which is fine with me because of the fact I need to use it doesn't mean I think the...

So lukep

"works in 2D not in 3D"

I take it from your comment that the box commands only work in 2D and not 3D that you never use the "B" key command in Blender?

I like the way AutoCAD does it.... drag a window from left to right- only objects completely within the window are selected. Drag a window from right to left and any object touched by the box is selected :D

How do I get my manual listed on the Blender site?

OK- I'm still getting lots of emails from people that find my manual and say how helpful it is to get started with and that it should be easier to find. There was a time when dotblend had it listed in the tutorials section, but has been removed. Is there a way I can get a listing of it back in there...

Hi Loke65 In order to unlink objects, select one of the objects and hit "U". in the menu that pops up, select the single user option for materials. It should then be seperate from all the others. www.elysiun.com is a great place to get specific answers from other users. You can also look at a beginn...

I like the system the way it currently works. I can install the latest version at school in my lab without getting the computer techs involved. If version numbers were to be tied to each release, I would then need to get the building tech to install them for me, then contact the network guy over at ...

z3r0_d is right. I've seen this when the object you're colliding with doesn't have a material. Add a material to the plane and things should work better.

Check out my site at our school to see what we're doing:
