we called it a mouse, cause the easure always turned grey.fun to toss across the room.
Alias is a good choice. It doesn't "show" well. not a lotta glitter and glam. but you have full contol of the surfaces. and passes back and forth with inventor great. And when you get the hang, you'd be suprised by the accuracy. they don't push that part of it, cause of it's artsy background. but (at least for me) it works great.
Tough to learn. Alot of stuff is backwards cause of it's unix past. The oldtimers won't let it change, cause it's fast when you know it.
Great information!! I did try Polyworks and got decent mesh from it. Didn't think to try pulling it into Alias.
I will pass this on...Thanks again!
