So you’re working on your surface model, and you are trying to get everything to match up nicely, usually to either G1 (tangent) continuity, or G2 (curvature) continuity. You think things look pretty good, you join them all together, you run ShowEdges to see if your model has any naked edges……and then you use Zebra to check that your edges are continuous in the way you desire. Which, frankly, I think is completely nuts. Allow me to explain.
Every year right around this time, the International Sign Show rolls around. This year it is in Las Vegas and I’m on my way there as we speak. Usually, I’m looking for new equipment and demonstrations, but this year is a little different. We’ll be hanging out in the Coastal Enterprises booth answering questions about our signs that have been getting a lot of attention. We also have meetings scheduled with quite a few of our vendors including Laird Plastics, Multicam, and Onsrud.
