Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)

Looking at the software's gallery page just made me regret i spent the last 10 months modeling with Google sketchup :/

Organic shapes.. smooth... that's what i need... too bad it's only for Rhino!

It doesn't "have" to be Rhino. It can be T-Splines, Rhino, SolidWorks, Pro/E, Spaceclaim or Inventor file. And has to be a T-splines model, and not a nurbs model.

taken from "System requirements" on T-Spline site:
"T-Splines v2 requires Rhino 4 SR 6 or later to run. T-Splines runs as a fully integrated plugin to Rhino."

Please correct me if I'm wrong with my summary: in order to participate to this contest, you need to have:
1) a CAD software license
2) a Rhino software license
3) a T-Spline software license

I'm only good for point 1), and I don't know if there will be anyone on Shapeways which has got the whole software bundle...

It looks as though the trial version will work but I await confirmation from T-Splines central.

So that gets you 2 out of 3.

Rhino Evaluation 4.0 does not support plug-ins, so maybe if you can find an older version it will get you 3 out of 3

Please see comment #2.1 about Rhino older version...

Ok, that brings you back to 2 out of 3,
