  1. Create archway to support a freeform Surface

    Hi, Apologies for the delayed response. Please let me know if the attached file is along the lines of what you are trying to design. structure.evo
  2. How to set up image planes?

    Hi Peter, We do not have an option to enable images in 3D viewport currently. The work around is to apply the image as a texture but this is only visible in interactive rendering mode.
  3. Hi Steve, You can delete all the objects in the scene except the cameras and save the file in 2016. Use File-Import/merge option to import this file into your new scene in 2017. The cameras will be added to your new scene. I suggest naming the cameras so that you don't have duplicates after merging.
  4. Wrap curve around Surface (Stretch tool alternative)

    Hi Nick, There are two tools to deform objects in Evolve that suit this use case and both options rely on a target surface. You have already found the stretch tool. The other is called surf-drape. In your example, the target surface is a lot smaller than the source curve. I am thinking this might be forcing Evolve to fit the source surface within the boundaries. To create a 3D curve, you can use the project curve option.
  5. Render Q

    RenderQ is installed as part of the main program. PC: Look under C:\Program Files\Evolve\,,version number>>\Evolve\Bin\win64 for the main application executable if you cannot find it under installed programs. MAC: rQ will be installed under the application folder where Evolve is installed.
  6. Maya Navigation Shortcut ?

    Hi, You are not doing anything wrong. This is a limitation of the program. Version 2017 does not support assigning mouse clicks. Unfortunately user is limited to modifier and/or key combinations only.
  7. Move license from desktop to laptop

    Hi Jimmy, An easier approach is to submit a request for an academic license using this page
  8. align

    Objects that are not part of a construction history can be hidden using the H key. The message you see pops up when you try to hide a source object. To avoid running into this message more often, I suggest using layers and hide them.
  9. align

    Tay, The attached video should help. Snap_translate.mp4
  10. how to draw curves like this?

    Jon, The Tween between curves tool is not available in Evolve. We have a request to add this kind of tool in place.
  11. Surface offset issue

    This is a common problem that unfortunately cannot be fixed with a magic wand, i wish. As you can see in the attached image from solidworks, this issue exists long before you did the combine and round. I am comparing to solidworks to prove that this is not a problem with Evolve but a generic parasolid behavior. Offsetting the source objects itself creates a mismatch with boundaries. One way to fix this issue is to build the interior surface just like you build the exterior and then create lofts between them. The second rather tedious and unpopular way is to delete the construction history of the offset and rebuild it. I will try to send you a file with a rebuild geometry by tomorrow.
  12. absolutely need to change the UI font size !

    The font size can be adjusted by using the Help-Preferences menu on PC. Under User Interface tab, you will find the font size option. Please see screenshot below. Font size does not apply to some pop up tool windows like Curve plot, surface curvature, view detail and so on.
  13. A set of dishes

    Looks great!
  14. Surface Continuity - A Comparison

    Hi Steve, I took a look at your file. If you turn on the ' Arc length profiles' and 'Arc length rails' option, the issue should go away.
  15. Surface Curvature Range - Units?

    Hi Steve, In general, curvature of a curve is 1 / r, where r is the radius of the osculating circle (the best approximating circle) so, in case of cm as current unit, it should be 1 / cm and in case of a surface, you have two curvatures, in two different directions, say k1 and k2 mean curvature is just 0.5 * (k1 + k2) , so the unit should be 1 / cm We are going to refine this tool in 2018 and add some much needed clarity.
