    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,
