adding this to meet the number of min. letters.I am currently a student learning CAD 3d for the first time I am using CAD 2008. I am very frustrated because my instructor isn't the best and he has just left us to finish our assignments with no further help. So here are some of the many problems I have run into.
1. rendering: When I render the window pops up just fine but when it renders the only thing that is on the screen is a black box were the rendering is supposed to be.... I don't know what I need to do to make my drawing show up on it. Do I need to selcet the drawing then press render?
try changing the LIGHTINGUNITS to 0 and see what that does.
what it should do if i remember correctly is turns off teh photometric lighting. you can also turn on the sky / sun on and see if that gives you any light as well.
2. My spotlight Attenuation needs to be changed. I know in the 07 version you can click it and a drop down pops up. Well that isn't happening for me for some reason it won't let me change it and I need to change it.
I cant remember all of it, but i belive the Attenuation is changed in the properties palette while ither selecting, or adding the light.
3. I have attached a drawing of a sofa. On the back I am trying to criss cross lines to find the center of back spaces for three cushions. the bottom cushion is 4 inches thick so I offset from the line I drew and I draw two lines up on the back then I try and draw my criss crosses. The OSNAP does not want to grab the interceting parts even with that one box checked.
Like I said I don't know what to do and my instructor left us to fend for ourselves. I'm not to happy about that. thanks a bunch! for any help you can give me.
see above in bold for my awnser.
