The false perspective? - more like a complete lack of it.

As it turns out you can turn that on quite easily and do proper rendering, but I confess I hit the "make it shiny" button and left it at that.

Can you post the KT88 rendered image with perspective turned on? -just curious

It should look "more real" (and more impressive) than what you've already posted.....

Perspective is nice for rendering but rather useless when doing assy mates and measuring, etc.

Wow! You are patient.

I only ever model a stripped down chassis to give to a fabrication shop. Usually with little aesthetic detail.

Looks good. You have crazy solid works skill.

Yup, that's dead. No question of it. Now let's see you put it all back together again.

Why, that's what took 20 hours in SolidWorks! See the lovely photos
in posts #2 and #3... All that's left is to flash the getters

Voila! one pretty picture that's as pretty as I can make it just now. it has perspective and so on added anyway - looks a bit wide angle to me but I can't figure out if thats even an option.

I have spotted a flaw with this rendering malarkey - it takes as long to render as it does to draw them. Its an overnight job on a what I thought was a meaty PC. Hence the 300b, the KT88 or 845 takes day(s) to do high res, at which point it usually crashes anyway.

Running SolidWorks on a 64 bit machine would be the way to go. That would give you meat, veg, potatoes, and cake.

I'm stuck at 32 bit with 4 gigs of ram for the time being.

What are you running for a PC?

My PC right now is:
AMD phenom 9500 processor, 4 gig ram and Vista 32 not exactly a three course meal, but hardly a salad either

I have access to an intel I7 based rig at work with 16gb ram and was intending to try that, but frankly was in too much of a hurry to get outtathere on Friday.

On a slightly more useful (?) note I've manged to get my hands on a few more valves that are no use (to me), so more to follow.

mwhaa haa haa
