but xsi softimage will.
No history based anything. once its cut, or made its independent of any
Plus, things can occupy the same space.
And it does it with nurbs if you so choose.
Has all the same surface creation routines we are all used to, but none of
the limitations of solids.
I havn't tried to bring anything in yet except 2d pics, so I don't know how
good it is at importing and using imported stuff.
But I ige'sed out and I got a real nice surface model for mastercam.
The surfaces weren't like from a solid because I dont have to make stuff
meet. I can add a post that starts somewhere and just goes into the part. It
doesn't have to subtract the material, its just surfaces. So when you iges
into mastwercam, the surfaces dont meet, but who cares. thats a limitation
of solids. Mastercam doesnt care about whats behind stuff. things dont need
trimmed perfectly in areas inside the part. mastercam simply looks from a
direction when it cuts and ignores stuff behind what your doing.
As far as editing...simple select what you want...and you have translate,
rotate, and scale at your fingertips to drag, or type in a number, or use
snaps. Combined with the copy face, copy edge, extrude edge, etc... building
that sheet metal thing from your video would be just as simple.
Again, I have no idea how it will deal with imported stuff, someday ill try
and all for 1700$ new.
